PM Orban: There's a clear link between illegal immigration and terrorism

Hungary will hold their referendum on October 2 on whether to accept the migration quotas forced upon them by the EU

Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said that there is a clear link between illegal immigration to Europe and terrorist attacks on the continent.

"It is clear as two and two makes four, it is plain as day. There is an obvious connection," Orban told reporters after a meeting of the Visegrad Four (V4) group of central European leaders in Warsaw.

"If somebody denies this connection then, in fact, this person harms the safety of European citizens," he added.

The prime minister's statement follows sentiments shared by fellow members of parliament who feel that the correlation between illegal immigration and terrorism is undeniable.

Hungary will hold their referendum October 2 on whether to accept the migration quotas forced upon them by the EU.

Both government and the Hungarian people feel that the EU's updated immigration policy is detrimental to the security of Hungary, its people and Europe as a whole.
