border protection; emergency;
In one year, almost 100,000 more migrants tried to enter Hungary illegally, according to the cabinet.
The perceptible migration pressure at the Hungarian border has intensified in the recent period, therefore the government is extending the crisis situation caused by mass immigration until March 7, 2023, the Government Information Center announced on Friday evening.
According to their argument, more than 162,000 border violators have already been caught at the Hungarian border this year, while around 60,000 border violators were caught in the same period last year. This means that almost 100,000 more migrants tried to enter Hungary illegally in one year, while the number of people smugglers doubled compared to the same period of the previous year.
Migrants trapped on the Balkan route are trying to enter the country more and more violently and regularly attack policemen protecting the border, most recently they threw stones at those building the border fence and attacked them with axes, they explain. They indicated: the Hungarian government continues to pursue an open and clear immigration policy: we maintain the border fence, ensure border protection, and in the discussions in Brussels we also take the firm position that we refuse the resettlement of migrants, that Europe and Hungary must be protected from mass immigration. The results of the national consultation, the referendums and the elections confirm that the government shares the same position as the people, and that the Hungarian people expect the government to protect the country’s borders, the statement reads.
