- Hungary Matters
Migration has become a matter of European democracy; the issue has created a rift between the left wing elite that upholds its “utopian” pro-migration ideology and ordinary citizens who have opposite interests, Zoltán Kovács
told the broadcaster. A solution to the problem of migration must be found outside Europe, he said, adding that economic migrants must be returned to their home countries.
Speaking prior to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s talks with Matteo Salvini, Italy’s deputy prime minister and leader of the League Party, Kovács said Hungary and Italy agree that illegal migrants must be sent back to their home countries.
He noted that over 90% of migrants staying in Italy had entered the country illegally.
Policies encouraging migration go nowhere, the spokesman said, stressing that illegal migration must be stopped.
