“We cannot let in several hundred million starving Africans. Europe is overcrowded. The politicians who do not take that into account will lose the next elections, and those parties will be in advantage which are questioning the current immigration policy.” This is a quote from security expert György Nógrádi, who obviously views this as a security issue and tries to keep it as simple as possible. So did the Prime Minister, who said that we will help those who are persecuted, but Hungary “must say no to existential immigrants and make it clear to them that they will not make their livelihood here”. He caught hell in exchange for trying to keep it unpretentious. This is clearly a very difficult issue, but simple as Orbán’s words were, I can’t help but notice that he is more or less describing the policy of the United States, Australia and more and more the United Kingdom, which is sort of trying to keep existential immigrants away even from inside the European Union. I have no idea which approach to immigration works best, but let’s face it: there are a number of nations who have been doing what the PM talked about for a long time. (Pictured are Hungarian minutemen looking for illegal immigrants near the Serbian border).
