A new law in Hungary enacted on Tuesday forces all asylum seekers there to be detained in border camps. Human rights organizations told reporters that the EU should do more to confront Hungary’s antagonistic migrant policy.

The law, which was passed on March 7, allows all asylum seekers in the country to be held in two camps on Hungary's border with Serbia. The camps consist of 324 shipping containers, where migrants will be housed while waiting for their asylum applications to be processed.
The Hungarian Interior Ministry defended the policy. "The goal is to prevent migrants with an unclear status from moving freely around the territory of the country and the European Union, and to thereby reduce the security risk of migration," they said in a statement.
