FM Szijjártó: Illegal Migrants ‘Not to Set Foot’ in Hungary

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.08.06.

“As long as we are on government, no illegal immigrant will set foot in Hungary,” Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Facebook on Thursday night.

Szijjártó shared a video by US channel FOX News host Tucker Carlson, recorded in Hungary, in which Carlson highlighted the Hungarian government’s decision to erect a border fence along Hungary’s southern borders “in the face of great international pressure” in response to the 2015 migrant crisis. That “wall”, Carlson said, had “effectively ended illegal migration into the country”.

Carlson visited the Hungary-Serbia border, and said he had seen Hungarian border police politely handling two Syrian migrants and escorting them back to Serbia.
