A Hungarian family became one of the many victims of the draconian US migration policy change, but their case appears to be resolving.
Last month, a 2-year-old Hungarian child named Levente was separated from his parents, as they stand accused of entering the United States unlawfully from Canada.
Fortunately, the family’s pain seems to be coming to an end. Yesterday, Levente’s sister Laura announced the results of the court’s final decision; the American authorities accepted the family’s application, and will allow the child to return home with his sister. Hungarian-born lawyer Péter Róna represented Levente in the case.

The Hungarian family’s story became worldwide news, thanks to a Buzzfeed article. The news portal said the case is “loaded with irony since Hungary has a staunchly anti-immigrant government.”
Hungarian government spokesman Zoltán Kovács stated the government would do whatever it could but stressed that “the laws must be respected, especially with regard to the question of migration.”
