Immigrants must not compromise Hungarian job seekers’ chances, says spokes
Budapest, June 2 (MTI) – Immigrants arriving in Hungary are expected to observe local rules and respect local culture, and they “cannot jeopardise” the jobs of local people, Zoltan Kovacs, the government spokesman, told MTI on Tuesday.
“This is a statement and message for those that wish to enter Hungary and the European Union illegally,” Kovacs said.
Earlier on Tuesday, news portal Index published a photo of a poster, allegedly a part of a planned government campaign, which read “If you come to Hungary, you cannot take jobs away from Hungarians!”.
The opposition Egyutt party has protested against the poster and encouraged people to remove them once they are put out.
