Just because white people got their land through genocide and forced removal does not mean that that explains anything about why immigration after that into this country has been relatively successful.
And frankly, I in turn am sick of Europeans suggesting that immigration is at all comparable to foreign invasion.
Like the US with Mexico or India with Bangadlesh? In both cases you built walls and fences on the border in order to prevent entrace to immigrants, the same thing that Hungary is trying to do and being hardly criticized for.
Gosh, India even seems to have a shoot-to-kill policy.
Oh, and there is also the Nicaragua-Mexico border.
Then there is Australia which AFAIK dumps immigrants in the Fiji Islands, and probably a lot of other countries with the same immigration problems which I'm not aware of.
If there are also countries that do have similar issues with immigration, even if that includes both India and the US, that still doesn't make it any more justifiable in my view. Besides, that also doesn't negate the fact that there are also examples of countries not having similar issues with immigration. Sometimes we can even see these in the history or current situation of those same countries. India has had tons of invasions in its history, and yet it has one of the most lax immigration policies in the world. Plus the person who decided to stop Bangladeshi refugees from coming into India was an autocrat and can hardly claim to be representative of what the people of her country actually wanted.
