Border security is the key to Hungary's homeland security

Hungary's chief security advisor has said that border security is the key to homeland security. “It would be pretty difficult to talk about homeland security” if we didn’t check people who enter the country, György Bakondi, the chief security advisor to the prime minister, said.

Bakondi explained that thanks to Hungary's security measures the number of people entering the country illegally has fallen to practically zero, “but the system will also be able to prevent mass, illegal and aggressive migration in the case of much higher pressure”.

Bakondi made the remarks in light of more than eighty people who have started demonstrations in the locality of Röszke. Bakondi said that a "Soros organization” arrived at the scene with organized transport.

The demonstrators met at Szent Antal Square in Csongrád County, and they arrived in an organized fashion, by buses and cars. There are Serbs, Italians, Germans and Spaniards among them. Some 60 to 70 per cent of the participants are foreign. There are additionally some better-known Hungarians such as Péter Juhász (president of the opposition party Együtt), and director Árpád Schilling, he said.

Bakondi added that the demonstrators distribute flyers with messages such as “we don’t need borders” and "we don’t need prisons”. The purpose of the demonstration is to eliminate borders, to stop the defense efforts, and to allow everyone to gain access to the territory of the European Union without restriction. According to his information, the demonstrators are planning to go from Röszke to the transit zone via the border.

Bakondi said that there is a police force in the region that has adequate numbers who will maintain the protection of the state border in every situation, despite all provocation.
