Border Fence


Here’s Hungary’s response to the persistent migration threat

The figures point in an increasingly concerning direction. It’s no longer a question of one’s stance on immigration; definitive action is needed to stop illegal border crossers from flooding the European Union. This is why Hungary is doubling the number of armed personnel protecting its southern border.

Is this what Brussels calls solidarity?

Two years ago, Prime Minister Orbán asked the European Commission to support Hungary – and the EU’s own border defense efforts – by covering half of what it cost to reinforce our southern border, a fence erected in 2015 on an important external border of the EU that has blocked a major human trafficking route and reduced illegal crossings into the EU along that border to close to zero. We had to wait a while for the response, and the answer they gave us is a disgrace.
