In its annual human rights report, the US Department of State has said that the most significant human rights problem within Hungary remains the government’s handling of migrants and asylum seekers seeking to transit the country.
Hungary's ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade was quick to respond and stated that it is not a fundamental human right for masses "to march through” safe countries, to violate the relevant international and national laws and to choose where they wish to live.
The foreign ministry’s reply reads that the Hungarian government agrees with President Donald Trump regarding his stance on illegal immigration, and regards the security and safety of the Hungarian people as top priority.
Hungary also stressed that not a single illegal immigrant will be let into the country before their application is fully assessed.
Hungary also defended its position on any accusation centralized around corrupton stating that they are unfounded as the Hungarian economy has been gaining in strength for years, wages are on the increase, the sovereign debt is on the decrease, and the deficit of the budget is below 3 percent.
The Hungarian people voted in favor of PM Orbán's government twice with a large majority, and 3.3 million people said no to illegal immigration in a democratic referendum. Everyone must respect the decisions of the Hungarian people.
