Hungary: 'Migration is an Organized Invasion'
Hungarian leader blasts mass-immigration - 'It’s forbidden to say so in Europe'
Hungary's leader has blasted the promotion of mass-immigration, declaring that "migration is an organized invasion."
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán spoke Thursday of the mounting migratory pressure on Hungary’s southern border.
Orbán, one of the few European leaders to speak out against immigration, revealed that many countries refuse to reject migration because "it’s forbidden to say so in Europe."
The prime minister made the remarks following a routine inspection of Hungary’s border fence with Peter Pellegrini - his Slovak counterpart.
Orbán said that Hungarian authorities have started to prepare for an expected increase in the number of organized migrant caravans attempting to enter the country illegally as the weather improves, Remix News reports.
Prime Minister Orbán took the opportunity to express his gratitude for Slovakia’s support during an impromptu press conference.
“This is hard work which we would have a hard time doing without help and our allies," Orbán said.
Orbán also took the opportunity to slam the international press for broadcasting a grossly distorted image of the ongoing migrant crisis.
The PM insists that the liberal world view of migration simply does not correspond to objective reality, arguing that 95 percent of newly arrived migrants are military-aged men.
“It’s forbidden to say so in Europe, but this is an organized invasion,” Orbán said.
So far this year, more than 5,000 migrants have attempted to enter Hungary illegally, with many of them showing up in large organized caravans.
The Hungarian leader argues that the migrants are being supported by organizations that claim to be "humanitarian" NGOs but which operate like people smuggling groups.
These organizations have substantial financial resources and noteworthy logistical capabilities, Orbán added.
Orbán also mentioned that the Hungarian secret service was closely monitoring the situation.
From the intel that they’ve acquired, Orbán says it’s clear that the illegal migration is being assisted by “half-human trafficking organizations calling themselves NGOs.”
Earlier in the month, Hungarian border police managed to push back a group of 71 migrant invaders who stormed a vulnerable section of fencing along the Hungary-Serbia border.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, Orbán spoke during a panel discussion at the National Conservatism conference in Rome last week where he vowed an end to immigration into Hungary.
Immigration issues in Europe's liberal nations began back in 2015 “when they failed to protect their citizens and their countries’ borders,” Orbán said.
