New border protection has stopped the influx of illegal immigrants

Hungary will hold a referendum October 2 to determine the outcome of whether to accept the forced migration quotas imposed by the EU

Illegal border crossings have been stopped by the new border protection system implemented at Hungary's borders, György Bakondi, chief security advisor to the prime minister, has said.

Bakondi said that border patrol officers stop migrants attempting to cross Hungary’s border illegally either when crossing the fence or within five miles of the border, and accompany them back to the nearest gate in the fence.

Bakondi also pointed out that the number of migrants in Hungary has also decreased. He said that illegal alien policing centers, and guarded and open camps have reached 41 and 60 percent of their intake capacities, respectively.

The news comes in light of plans to increase patrols on border lines and to work in-line and alongside Austria to ensure the influx of illegal immigrants is kept to a minimum.

Hungary will hold a referendum on October 2 to determine the outcome of whether to accept the forced migration quotas imposed by the EU.
