  1. Hungry is making a mistake by letting migrants into the country from Serbia. What will happen to them if the rest of EU refuses to accept them? Is it fair for the local tax payers to pick up the tab. Mr. Orban, the more migrants Hungary lets in the more will come. Can you guarantee the safety of your citizens in light of the crash of Air Egypt.
