The local mayor is the vice-president of the right-wing nationalist Jobbik party. During the 2015 European migrant crisis, over 10,000 Syrian and Iraqi migrants have passed through the village, with some aiming to settle there. As per 2017, only two muslims are know to be permanently settled there. There are no mosque-designed structures and the mayor have banned any building of mosques in 2017. In 2017, it was reported that the local government had banned the Muslim call to prayer, muslim clothing, and public displays of same-sex affection. The mayor have called for all the christian locals to support for a "holy war on muslims" and multiculturalism. The main aim of the mayor is to supposedly create a "white utopia." The local laws are being challenged by lawyers who state that the laws are against the Hungarian constitution.
