Greeting a contingent of policemen leaving to relieve colleagues working in border protection in Serbia, State Secretary Bence Rétvári said the European Union’s migration policy has failed.
The state secretary said 30 Hungarian policemen are leaving for Serbia today, as part of the cooperation between Austria, Hungary and Serbia, to cooperate with local authorities there. “Putting defense lines as south as possible” eases the pressure on the policemen working at the Hungarian-Serbian border, he said. Hungarian authorities thwarted 270,000 illegal entry attempts last year, twice as many as in 2021, he said. The EU’s policy to “allow everyone in and then decide whether they are in the EU legally” has failed, he said. Less than 10% of those expelled from the EU return to their homeland, he said.
