Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban: ‘Immigration and Terrorism Go Hand in Hand’

Viktor Orbán, the Prime Minister of Hungary and a prominent conservative figure is never hesitant to express his opinions on uncomfortable or unpopular truths.

When asked by American media how to stop the war in Europe, Orbán didn’t hesitate to say, “We all need Donald Trump to save the world.”

When addressing mass migration, he stands at the forefront of the few nations whose social fabric has remained unscathed by refraining from inviting young military-aged males from conflict zones.

In a Hungarian radio interview, the Prime Minister was characteristically straightforward, stating that, “so far, Europe has not been allowed to talk about the fact that migration and terrorism go hand in hand.”

Orbán said that “a new secret service report” proves that migration and terrorism are in fact closely related.

As reported by Hungary Today:

He continued by pointing out that the intelligence report sets out a fearful horizon and confirms that we must do what we have been doing so far, that is protecting our borders.

“Migration and terrorism go hand in hand. Migrants are becoming increasingly aggressive and are trying to get through the border fence with ever more brutal means,” Viktor Orbán said.

The Prime Minister added, “Once we let the migrants in, they cannot be removed.”

National unity is needed on the issue of migration, he said, reminding the listeners that Hungary didn’t commit the same mistake as much of Europe back in 2015.

“We should be thankful that we had our wits about us when we needed them,” he said. “When the whole of Europe was calling for opening our borders, we had to have our hearts and our minds in the right place.”

The task now, as he sees it, is not to allow Brussels to impose on Hungary its notably failed policies.

“For the sake of our children, we must do everything we can to prevent this from happening, so that they do not have to live in the conditions we are already seeing in many places,” he said. “Any admission of illegal migrants will lead to a situation where it will not be possible to live peacefully in Hungary.”

He said this is the case in many Western countries, as a result of the 2015 migration wave.

“We do not want to tell other nations how they should do it, but we also do not want them to tell us how we should do it. We want tolerance,” he pointed out. “They want to force us to build migrant ghettos, and we have to fight that.”

He had a familiar quote at the end: “Hungary belongs to the Hungarians, jobs belong to Hungarians, the rules must be made by Hungarians.”
