"Hungary does not need a single migrant for the economy to work, or the population to sustain itself, or for the country to have a future... Every single migrant poses a public security and terror risk. For us migration is not a solution but a problem... not medicine but a poison, we don't need it and won't swallow it." - Viktor Orban (Hungarian prime minister) source: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/h-1572775

A new survey in Hungary has found overwhelming support for curbing mass illegal migration, as nine out of ten citizens directly oppose illegal migrants entering the country... The survey... was conducted by the Századvég Foundation. source: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/04/survey-90-percent-hungarians-illegal-migration/

"We must set up large refugee camps outside the EU, with armed security and financial support provided by the Union. Everyone who came illegally must return there. There they can file for asylum. Until then, they must remain in large, non-EU camps. This could be an island, it could be a coastal area in North Africa." - Viktor Orban (prime minister of Hungary) source: https://www.rt.com/news/360334-hungary-orban-illegal-migrants-africa/

Hungary... has become the first government to open an office specifically to address the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Europe... Hungary’s new office will have a starting budget of $3.35 million with which to help persecuted Christians, to raise international awareness of their “untenable situation,” and to coordinate humanitarian efforts. source: http://www.christianitytoday.com/gleanings/2016/september/first-country-to-officially-defend-christians-persecuted-by.html

Nearly every day, an immigration lawyer makes his or her way to a barbed-wire enclosure along Hungary’s border with Serbia, ready to walk an asylum seeker through the daunting process of pleading for safe haven in one of the most refugee-resistant countries in Europe. Now these lawyers risk jail time if they so much as help a client fill out a complicated Hungarian-language form. Hungary’s parliament last week approved a legislative package aimed not only at barring the gates to almost any outsider — but also decreeing punishment for those who try to aid would-be migrants. Amid paroxysms of immigration-related political strife in the United States — family separations at the border with Mexico, the Supreme Court’s upholding of the administration’s travel ban targeting nationals from certain Muslim-majority countries — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a self-professed fan of President Donald Trump, is savoring his latest and most sweeping victory in the migration wars shaking Europe. The new measures, set to take effect as early as this weekend, allow for the prosecution and jailing of human rights workers and volunteers for providing services, advice or support to migrants and asylum seekers. The package, which prompted vehement criticism from the European Union and human rights groups, could still be vetoed by Hungary’s president, Janos Ader, but such a scenario is seen as highly unlikely. Hungary has taken in vanishingly small numbers of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, but Orban — whose populist Fidesz party swept to victory in April elections, securing him a third term — sees vindication in the Draconian anti-immigration measures increasingly espoused not only by hard-right leaders elsewhere in Europe, but also by the U.S. president. Even before the latest stringent measures, Hungary earned a reputation for hostility toward migrants who surged through Europe three years ago, a wave made up largely of Syrian war refugees trying to make their way to friendlier destinations such as Germany and Sweden. Hungary erected a barrier on its border with Serbia and Croatia; state media relentlessly bashed Muslims as a threat to Christian Hungary. source: https://www.heraldnet.com/nation-world/this-european-country-makes-us-look-lenient-on-immigration/
