Miklós Szánthó, the head of the Center for Fundamental Rights, said border protection is the cure for illegal migration organized by NGOs both at the southern border of the United States and in Europe.
“This mass migration that we see in Europe and the United States as well as organized illegal mass migration,” Szánthó told The Washington Times journalist Tim Constantine’s Capital Hill Show. “Look at the participants, look at the actors! There are the warlords in Africa or the South American drug cartels in Mexico, the human traffickers, and the human smugglers. There are the so-called human rights NGOs, who act as some kind of travel agencies, who are trying to organise the trips of these migrants,” Szánthó said. Although these NGOs regard themselves as civil organisations, he said, “in reality those are political actors, mostly financed by the Open Society Foundation, by the Soros network.” Illegal mass migration becomes fully organized in such a way that “at the end of the day, there are the progressive liberal elites of the Western European countries, who promote this idea of Europe without borders.” “But we do know that a nation is not a nation without borders,” Szánthó said. “And this is the Hungarian experience, and this is why we are trying to protect our borders on the south. And in that way, we are also protecting the borders of Europe.”
