Hungary's stance on migration gains strength in the United States

Hungary's chief security advisor said that the European Union has failed to find a solution to the migrant crisis over the course of two and a half years

Hungary's chief security advisor has said that the country's stance on migration and monitoring migrants could gain strength in the United States.

During his recent visit to the United States, György Bakondi said that some Congressmen were shocked to hear that the Islamic State fighters could get into Europe, and they believe nobody should be allowed to cross the border without suitable controls.

Bakondi said that people smugglers have exploited renewed fighting in Libya, as a result increasing numbers of people are setting off across the Mediterranean bound for Europe. He said that the European Union has failed to find a solution to the situation over the course of two and a half years.

The chief security advisor also said that only those who have undergone a check outside the territory of Europe should only be allowed entry, and they should not be distributed according to quotas.

“Most of the proposals that have arisen are uncannily similar to the various points of the Soros plan, in view of the fact that he would like to also involve NGOs in the distribution of migrants and do away with limits on their numbers," he said.

“Not a single element of the plan is acceptable, in addition to which it also goes against the opinion of the overwhelming majority of European citizens," he added.
