Many migrants are barred at the entrance in Hungary. Others are accepted as asylum seekers and taken to a special camp fitted in the locality of Roszke border, where must wait for a visa to move to Budapest, and there catch a train for Austria. Some can't handle waiting in Roszke, trying to pierce the police control and move clandestinely, sometimes using human trafficking networks.
