Voting in an expedited procedure without debate, lawmakers approved amendments to Hungary’s immigration act that provide legal grounds for building a fence on the Serbian border and allow for expedited decisions in the case of refugees who apply for asylum, Hungarian online news daily hir24.hu reported.
