The European Union’s migration policy has failed, a state secretary of the interior ministry said on Wednesday, greeting a contingent of policemen leaving to relieve colleagues working in border protection in Serbia.
Bence Rétvári said 30 Hungarian policemen were leaving for Serbia on Thursday, as part of the cooperation between Austria, Hungary and Serbia, to cooperate with local authorities there. “Putting defence lines as south as possible” eases the pressure on the policemen working at the Hungarian-Serbian border, he said.
Hungarian authorities thwarted 270,000 illegal entry attempts last year, twice as many as in 2021, he said.
The EU’s policy to “allow everyone in and then decide whether they are in the EU legally” has failed, he said. Less than 10 percent of those expelled from the EU return to their homeland, he said.
A lot of these people branded “illegal immigrants” are actually refugees who apply for asylum:
Many asylum claims are granted – i.e. they are allowed to stay in the EU, indefinitely:
And now for Hungary. Is this “illegal immigrant” business a political tool or are we significantly impacted?
Oh. Wait. So we have 40 (forty) first time asylum applicants and a net migration of under 2’000 …. Mike drop !
