Budapest, September 10 (MTI) – The interior ministry has proposed that the government declare a state of crisis in light of the massive influx of migrants, which will be discussed at next Tuesday’s cabinet meeting, government office chief Janos Lazar said.

He said in the next two weeks the government will expand the capacities of reception centres and Prime Minister Viktor Orban has ordered the interior minister to make recommendations for at least two or three more centres to be set up in the country.

So far 176,000 illegal entrants have arrived in Hungary this year, Lazar said. Findings by the national security cabinet indicate that organised crime and the threat of terrorism are on the rise in Hungary, he added.

“As of zero hours on Sept 15. it will be declared that anyone choosing Hungary as their target destination must obey the laws and enter at official entry points,” Lazar said, adding that there will be opportunities for filing asylum requests at the border and anyone doing so can receive legal protection and provisions until their request is processed — within 12-14 days.

Lazar said contrary to earlier plans there would be no tranzit zones open towards Serbia, as “this would make no sense”. There will be two types of people at the border: those who file asylum requests and those who don’t. The first group will be transported to reception centres but they will have freedom to move within the country. The others will stay on the border or in Serbia. Support for this latter group will be the shared responsibility of Serbia and Hungary, and civil organisations like the Hungarian Maltese Charity, the Hungarian Ecumenical Aid and the Hungarian Red Cross, will be asked to help, he said.

Lazar said the fence on the border with Serbia is being constructed at an accelerated pace and its completion date could be as soon as a month before the original deadline of Oct. 31. In the recent period some 10 kilometres of fencing has been built per day, he said.

In response to a question, Lazar said that the deadline for completing construction on the border fence at the Roszke border station, including the railroad tracks, is Sept. 15.

By the end of September the government expects it would have authority to give extra tasks to the army in connection with handling mass migration.

He rejected criticism that the Hungarian government was not providing support to migrants. He said rather than taking supplies to them, the government is transporting migrants to assistance points.

Lazar said Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann’s remarks about the Hungarian government and Orban were “outrageous” but Orban was ready to sit down to talks with the chancellor.

He said international criticism about Hungary’s migration policies was merely an attempt to force Hungary into accepting the quota system and into building a big refugee camp on its territory.

Hungary does not rule out a reasonable discussion on the quota plan, but there must first be agreement on basic issues. One of these is that priority should be given to protecting Europe’s borders.

Hungary does however “fully reject” a plan to set up so-called hot spots, or refugee camps controlled by the European Commission, on Hungary’s territory. There is neither “a chance nor an opportunity” for building such a camp, which would accommodate up to 100,000 people, he said.

  1. It`s a shame ow your Country and People (like the inhuman camerawoman who kicked a refugee) is treating the political refugees. We as a rich doctors Family will not visit and spend Money as tourists in your Country in our whole live- thats for sure.

    What a shame on a Country that got rich from the EU.

  2. I applaud Hungary for measures it is taking to protect the country from being overrun by hordes of “refugees”. Look after your own people, not thousands of able-bodied young Muslims who have absolutely no business being in Hungary or any other European nation.

    There is something seriously wrong with letting Mid-East Riffraff even enter the European continent, and apply for “refugee” status! The architects of this whole disastrous situation are the EU Commies, led by the evil Frau Merkel, whose agenda is to turn Europeans into the white MINORITY! The race traitors must be stopped, and sooner rather than later. There is no time to waste!

    God bless Hungary and Europe.

  3. So , spend your money at any other country that made something usefull until now, instead of comply with the situation.
    Spend your money in a country with no xenofobie, if this country exist.
    Ask to other countries to open his borders and let the refugies pass throught.

  4. If you are indeed a so called ” rich doctors family…”, so go to Hungary and offer your services to the refugies in order to minimize their suffering, in order to help to put an end on the caos. To help the volunteers with aid to the refugies, this no one caught on tape. Of course there are problems, goverment answers are not good, but from one moment to another, “expert” people apear from nowhere and blames a entire country based on shamefull acts off one people or a group, people that can hardly find Hungary on a map. Perhaps Hungary won a lot of with the Union, but for sure can not handle alone with that and keep the unions law up.

  5. Shame? Ha! Really?
    As Turkish, your not offering employment to the Syrian bretheren in your borders. Even though you share the same language and culture as them. Many of you don’t even support them at the human level. Yet you join their trail to Europe to seek economic gain, figuring you can convert Europe into another failed Islamic state? Took a while, we swept you out in the past, get ready dreamer, it’s going to happen again. You can go and ask ALLAH for forgiveness for being such foolish Infadels…
    Have a nice day. @H

  6. Keep defending your country and culture Hungary! How about to take in a few refugees into your own home, Mr. , to live with your family. Just a few. I think Hungary can let you do that. Feed them, pay for their medical expenses and education, make sure they don’t do something illegal and that they go back where they came from after the danger is gone. How about that?

    Don’t fall for this Trojan Horse send your way from the Arab/Muzzies!

  7. ow about to take in a few refugees into your own home, Mr. Herzog, to live with your family. Just a few. I think Bibi can let you do that. Feed them, pay for their medical expenses and education, make sure they don’t do something illegal and that they go back where they came from after the danger is gone. How about that?

    Don’t fall for this Trojan Horse send your way from the Arab/Muzzies!

  8. I do not belong to a ‘rich doctors’ family,but will continue to visit the beautiful country,Hungary…Stay strong Hungarian people, see you soon xx

  9. To Davarcioglu

    That’s fine, we don’t want your money or you in Hungary. Please, stay away from Hungary. Thank you.

  10. There is a way to enter a country respectfully and legally whether you are entering Hungary or any other country, and whether you are a visitor or a refugee. How many times did you travel to another country and you were not checked at the borders??? We all need to step back and respect Hungary’s laws to protect their borders and handle immigrants the proper way.
