Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán promised the citizens of Hungary he would build a wall to protect them from the influx of mostly male unvetted refugees. He ignored the threats from the bully leaders of the European Union and neighboring countries and built the wall anyhow. Today, Hungary is reaping the rewards of a committed and strong leader.
Hungary has slashed illegal immigration by over 99 per cent after rolling out a series of powerful border fences in response to the European migrant crisis, possibly providing a lesson as to the potential impact of constructing President Trump’s much-discussed southern wall in the U.S.
A razor-wire fence built along Hungary’s southern border with Serbia and Croatia has helped to sharply reduce the number of migrants from the hundreds of thousands who last year moved up from the Balkans towards northern Europe, especially Germany.
Hungary says it has registered 19,140 asylum applications in 2016 and more than 14,000 migrants have crossed its southern borders illegally.
Speaking on the second anniversary of the government’s move to seal Hungary’s border with Serbia — which is also an external border for the European Union — Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Chief Security Advisor György Bakondi announced that the fences have caused illegal immigration to collapse from 391,000 in 2015, to 18,236 in 2016, to just 1,184 in 2017.
In February 2017, Prime Minister Orbán took his war against George Soros public:
Hungary’s populist prime minister on Friday lashed out against billionaire financier George Soros, claiming he and groups backed by him want to secretly influence the country’s politics.
In his annual state of the nation speech, Viktor Orban said groups partly funded by Soros, who was born in Hungary, needed to be made transparent and identifiable.
“Large-bodied predators are swimming here in the waters. This is the trans-border empire of George Soros, with tons of money and international heavy artillery,” said Orban, who received a Soros-funded scholarship as Hungary was transitioning from communism to democracy in the late 1980s.
“It is causing trouble … that they are trying secretly and with foreign money to influence Hungarian politics,” Orban said.
Breitbart: “The system of technical barriers is the key to the success of border security, and without it, it would be impossible to stop the mass arrival of immigrants”, the security chief explained.
Hungary had to respond rapidly to the migrant influx which burst upon Europe after Germany’s Angela Merkel announced there was “no limit” on the number of asylum seekers her own country would accept, so its frontiers are defended by twin fences peppered with watchtowers and patrolled by thousands of newly recruited border guards rather than a solid wall — which would have taken longer to construct.
Nevertheless, as it has been steadily reinforced illegal migration has slowed to a trickle — drawing the ire of open borders activists like billionaire financier George Soros and globalist officials at the European Union and the United Nations.
In June 2017, Orbán told the Hungarian parliament that his country “will not give in to blackmail from Brussels and we reject the mandatory relocation quota.” Schulz shot back swiftly at Orbán in his speech on Tuesday.
His comments came as the European Commission voted to launch infringement proceedings against the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary for not taking in refugees under a mandatory 2015 quota system advocated by Germany that aimed to relocate 160,000 refugees across the Continent.
Hungary’s badass Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has consistently stood up to leftist EU bullies who are demanding that all EU nations take their “fair share” of the mass influx of mostly Muslim refugees.
“We shall not allow others to tell us whom we can let into our home and country, whom we can live alongside.” – Prime Minister Viktor Orbán
Watch Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s historic speech in March 2016, where he demands other European leaders find their backbone and save Europe before it’s too late. His speech will make you want to stand up and cheer!
“Mr.Orbán says ‘That’s a German problem,’” Schulz said. “Let me make this perfectly clear: When it comes to agricultural policy, it’s all ‘Yes, please.’ When it comes to subsidies, it’s all ‘Yes, please.’ And when it comes to solidarity in refugee policy, it’s ‘No, thank you’ — that’s not acceptable.”
