Of course, all of this is happening to a backdrop of a wave of xenophobia sweeping all of Europe, with almost all governments going along to some extent. And my own opinion of the resettlement quota idea is also negative, even of for completely different reasons from Orbán: I think refugees have the best chance of integration in countries where (1) they have friends & relatives who can help, (2) they speak the language or can learn it relatively easily, (3) there is a halfway working refugee support and integration policy and (4) the economy is in a better shape – in other words, the very countries refugees are heading to and the governments of which would appease local xenophobes with the resettlements.
