- Hungary Matters
According to the EC’s special Eurobarometer survey, 53% of Hungarians think that most immigrants cannot be integrated and the same proportion disagrees with the view that immigrants may ease the labour shortage.
Seventy-four percent of Hungarians said immigrants are a burden on the welfare system and 65% said they pose a risk of crime.
Fully 64% of Hungarians said immigrants do not enrich their country’s cultural life.
According to the survey, 45% of Hungarians said migration was presented in the media in an objective way, whereas 37% said it was presented in overly negative colours.
The survey was conducted in 28 EU states between October 21 and 30 last year, and covered 28,080 respondents, including 1,038 people in Hungary.
