AFPI Director: "Hungary knows how to protect its sovereignty and the security of its citizens"

Organized by the Center for Fundamental Rights at the border, key figures from both the United States and Hungary discussed the strong measures Hungary has implemented to protect its sovereignty and citizens' security against illegal migration.


"Hungary knows how to protect its sovereignty and the security of its citizens," said Robert Law, Director of the Center for Homeland Security and Immigration at the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) during a visit to the Hungarian-Serbian border organized by the Center for Fundamental Rights. The event was also attended by Zoltán Kovács, State Secretary for International Communication, and Magor Ernyei, Director of International Relations at the Center for Fundamental Rights. Law praised Hungary's firm stance against illegal migration, contrasting the policies pursued by the Hungarian and U.S. governments.

Magor Ernyei, the Center's Director of International Relations, explained that the cooperation between American Republicans and Hungarian conservatives focuses on harmonizing migration policy and strengthening border defense, as fundamental pillars of national sovereignty: "This backbone is provided by a joint project of the Center for Fundamental Rights and the America First Policy Institute, aiming to harmonize the two approaches. We agree with our American Republican friends: without strong border defense, there is no nation," he added.


State Secretary Zoltán Kovács emphasized the importance of political will in the effectiveness of Hungary's approach to migration. "Over the past 9 years, Hungary has proven that illegal migration can be stopped at our borders with the effectiveness of the border fence, police, and border hunters. Currently, although there seems to be silence at the border, in reality, migration pressure is increasing, but we are ready and will protect our country," he elaborated.

Robert Law and his hosts were first received by the local police and border guard, where they attended a presentation about the activities of Hungarian authorities in terms of border control and security. This significantly differs from the reality at the American-Mexican border, where, according to the American visitor, "about 10 million people have illegally crossed the border in the last three years, considering the weak policy of the Biden administration."
