Hungarian Hatred Quickly Pushed Out Refugees

If you had to pick a European country that would've tried to immediately push the newest refugees out of their country, Hungary should have been first on your list. Of all the racist governments in central Europe Hungary is number one.
Let's once again look at their anti-Semitism as a gauge for how they approach the concept of diversity.
Since the 1930s, Hungary has been an anti-Semitic state. During World War II the Hungarian fascist equivalent of the SS was the Arrow Cross, a group that loved sending Hungarian Jews to concentration camps.
When the Russians took over Hungary, they didn't spend a lot of time reeducating the Hungarian people on their attitude towards Jews. Russia was not as anti-Semitic (that must surprise you) but it wasn't an issue of importance to them.
My daughter is the granddaughter of Hungarians who are Holocaust survivors. I once took a trip with them to Budapest and heard stories of cabdrivers who would refuse to carry Jews in their cabs. People like Tony Curtis gave money to rehabilitate the synagogue in Budapest, and George Soros bought the best restaurant there, but it made little difference.  Hungary was too attached to the practice of hating Jews.
Since 2002 Hungary has moved to the right and become more authoritarian under Prime Minister Victor Orban. The far right Jobbik party controls  nearly 20% of Parliament and has a nationalistic anti-Semitic platform.
So if anybody figured that Hungary would accept people who didn't look like them and let them settle is smoking some bad stuff. This is a country filled with hatred for Jews, Romany, and almost everybody else.
