Do you mean 'laws'?"Incitement to hatred" laws are ineffective because they are virtually always unenforceable, even where race and religious hatred are concerned. This is largely because those doing the incitement know the boundaries and slyly skirt around them while still promoting their message. Keeping unwelcome foreigners who promote subversive, bigoted ideas is an additional option. There is no good reason to allow foreigners who promote harmful doctrines into the country.
The rules should be made and enforced by the democratically elected government of the day.
We have those, and we can make more.
But a chanting mob shouldn't decide who gets to speak.
