Jobbik opposes allowing migrant 14-18 year-olds into Hungary
Budapest, May 3 (MTI) – The leader of Jobbik said on Wednesday that allowing migrants aged between 14-18 into Hungary would be a “huge mistake” and the party opposes any associated changes to the law on child protection.
Vona noted at a news conference that Jobbik had supported March 7 legislation tightening asylum regulations which exclude migrant 14-18 year-olds from the child protection act while obliging them to stay in transit zones until their asylum applications are ruled on.
Vona dismissed a recent government statement on relaxing the rules, insisting that doing so would open up legal abuses and increase security risks.
