Hungary's new razor-wire fence and national direction mark a sharp reversal for a country that played a historic role in crumbling of the Berlin Wall by opening a border fence with Austria in 1989 that triggered a sudden exodus of East Germans to the West.

Hungary's anti-migrant steps show Orban's right-wing shift

There's a BIG difference between what Hungary's doing in 2015 than what came down with the old Iron Curtain. This time Hungary's trying to keep people OUT, not in.

Limiting the number of immigrants into any country by protecting their borders via a wall/face, etc. is not being anti-immigrant either. It is pro-their own citizens first.

Hungary was occupied by the Ottoman Turks for more than 150 years and they have a lingering fear of Muslims, rightly so, I think.
