After a cabinet meeting this afternoon, the Hungarian government released an article in English on the official website of the Prime Minister’s Office, About Hungary. Here are the most important provisions of these bills:

1. Every organization that supports illegal immigration by using foreign financial resources would be registered and obliged to report on its activity.

2. A tax would be imposed on the foreign funding of organizations supporting illegal immigration. This public income would be invested in border protection.

3. It would be possible to issue restraining orders against those who take part in organizing illegal immigration. In essence, such restraining orders would apply in any area that is within 8 kilometers of the Schengen border. In special cases, a third-country citizen would be subject to a restraining order anywhere within Hungary. This measure would remain in force until the end of the migration crisis.
