OTTAWA — New billboards in Hungary tell residents not to bother coming to Canada to file an unfounded refugee claim because the rules have changed and they’ll quickly be deported.
“People with unfounded claims will be deported faster,” warn the billboards, bearing the Government of Canada logo and directing people to the Citizenship and Immigration website.
Late last week, the billboards were placed in Miskolc, a city in northeast Hungary that is home to many Roma.
