Jobbik anticipates protracted migration crisis
Budapest, September 18 (MTI) – The radical nationalist Jobbik party expects a long-lasting migration crisis, which it considers a European issue, deputy leader Tamas Sneider said on Friday.
Due to demographic trends and destabilisation in some regions in Africa and Asia, migration will remain a challenge over the next years, even decades, he said in Szeged, in southern Hungary, after a three-day session of the party’s parliamentary group.
Sneider expressed hope that a shift in migration routes would bring some relief to Hungary but added that Europe would have to cope with immigration even in the long term.
Sneider called it baffling that leaders of the neighbouring countries “keep badmouthing” Hungary over its approach towards migrants but once their crowds enter their territory, they suddenly change their policies and close the border.
