Canada won’t force Roma to return to Hungary: Balog

There will be no mass return of Hungarian Roma once Canada implements stricter immigration rules, Minister of Human Resources Zoltán Balog told state news agency MTI on Monday. He was speaking as Canada’s Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney visited the country ahead of the implementation, expected this year, of a new Canadian immigration act designed to tighten the rules against bogus asylum claims and people smugglers.
