Heard a report on All Things Considered (NPR) today on the Hungarian government's attitude toward the Syrian and other migrants who are transiting -- not intending to stay in, but transiting -- Hungary en route to Germany and other European countries. The latest move was to close the train station in Budapest to migrants, stranding them there. The Hungarian government is building a barbed-wire fence on the country's border with Serbia. Not only is that retrograde policy, it's unlikely to work.
