Chief Security Advisor: Boom in illegal border crossing attempts at sections without border fence

In a press conference held at Hungary’s southern border fence, Prime Minister Orbán’s Chief Security Advisor György Bakondi confirmed that the number of illegal border-crossing attempts have increased dramatically around border sections not protected with a border fence, even though increased police and military presence is supported by high-end heat cameras, drones and radar technology.

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.
