Hungary Builds A Wall, Cuts Illegal Immigration By Over 99%

Authored by Jack Montgomery via,

Hungary has slashed illegal immigration by over 99 per cent after rolling out a series of powerful border fences in response to the European migrant crisis, possibly providing a lesson as to the potential impact of constructing President Trump’s much-discussed southern wall in the U.S.

Speaking on the second anniversary of the government’s move to seal Hungary’s border with Serbia - which is also an external border for the European Union - Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Chief Security Advisor, György Bakondi, announced that the fences have caused illegal immigration to collapse from 391,000 in 2015, to 18,236 in 2016, to just 1,184 in 2017.

“The system of technical barriers is the key to the success of border security, and without it, it would be impossible to stop the mass arrival of immigrants”, the security chief explained.

Hungary had to respond rapidly to the migrant influx which burst upon Europe after Germany’s Angela Merkel announced there was “no limit” on the number of asylum seekers her own country would accept, so its frontiers are defended by twin fences peppered with watchtowers and patrolled by thousands of newly recruited border guards rather than a solid wall — which would have taken longer to construct.

The Hungarians introduced these zones after it was discovered that many of the Paris 2015 terrorists had passed through their territory - a step-change from other EU member-states, which leave migrants more or less at large, with sometimes deadly consequences, in obedience to EU law.

“There is continuous migration pressure on our borders,” insisted Dr Zoltán Kovács, the Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Relations.


“The measures introduced in the interests of protecting the border continue to be necessary; it is thanks to these that the number of migrants entering Hungary illegally and in an uncontrolled manner has fallen drastically.”

Nevertheless, as it has been steadily reinforced illegal migration has slowed to a trickle - drawing the ire of open borders activists like billionaire financier George Soros and globalist officials at the European Union and the United Nations.

For example, UN Refugee Agency chief Filippo Grandi visited the border and complained:

“When I was standing at the border fence today, I felt the entire system is designed to keep people, many of whom are fleeing war and persecution, out of the country”.

Grandi also called on Hungary to get rid of the border-spanning transit zones it has established, which allow all asylum seekers entering the country to be detained while the validity of their claims are assessed.

“People who attack the fence are taking a stand in favour of allowing large numbers of people to enter the country without any form of control,” added Mr. Bakondi.

Border walls work? Who would have guessed?

Rakksan - that's so fucking raaaacist - shame upon you!

Border controls keep out young, military-age African-Europeans, who wish to reside in your country and obtain every single benefi therefrom.  Young white wymmyns is an added bonus.

I believe that the above words of wisdom sjw'd on high from the Grand Flipper is the leading contender for the 'No Shit Sherlock' award 2017.

This could only be bettered if King Fatboy III pushes his luck and a dodgy-dong pissile goes astray into South Korea or Japan. I can hear him now doing a Mayor of Hiroshima equivalent in Korean of 'What the fuck was that?!' as the cloud of radio-active death portents hell fire and agony on the long suffering people of the North.

i think hungary will have some terrorism problem soon.... just because of EU willing to let the borders OPENED instead of closed.


damn you EU !


i should buy another CZ before they leave EU too, price would sensibly raise... hmmm

It is strange, no? To keep foreigner out, you must build wall, but to keep citizenry in, you only need build curtain…

But it was a beautiful iron curtain. ....or maybe it was an ironed curtain :)

Boris is not recommend it iron curtan… at least not is one with pleat - better is just to wash and hang dry.

US issue differs bigtime!

The Mexicans coming into US has alot of US citizen support

The drug issues in the US have very little to do with the border, its coming into US from Afghanistan from the DEEPSTATE/ELITE/GOV help!

The illegal migrants are not doing the damage in the US, the jobs they "steal/take" would be of no concern if we did not rid the US of big industry .

No one cared about illegals during the industrial era in US.. The issue is the competition for low/minimum wage crap  jobs that cannot sustain a person much less a family.....

If we force our overseas/global companies back to the US and allow trade for items we cannot produce then jobs/industry will return and the era of cheap crap products for less money will end, yes prices will rise but so will the income to support the prices!

We lived through the 80s where all electronics were from overseas(US product sucked) and cost alot more money, but we had the income to support it!

They are finally reaching the tipping point where it cannot be made cheaper and sold for less, yet the working class  incomes still cannot support the purchases

The simple fact that we have this huge gap in auto/home prices from working class/elite shows the real issue!

The billion dollar homes are right around the corner, a place to park million dollar cars and multi million dollar yachts...

They (ELITE) have nothing to do with the working class, there only contact is the workers who maintain there property!

We (working class) have so much in common with daily struggles to support our families and pay bills, it doesnt matter weather we are Rep/Dem White/Black/Brown M/F or other , we all have more in common with each other than any of us have with the Elite.

The biggest issues we are facing is the Deepstate using the media to divide all the working class from uniting and making the changes we need!

The NGO's supporting movements like BLM and others to make the working class think its not about me, when in reality WE are all the same!

This is Rich vs working class and has been from day one, the Deepstate will use its proxies (all GOV,Media,military IC,Prison IC ) to keep us at odds with each other so we never unite against them (ELITE)!

What the working class seem to overlook is that as long as we are fighting each other we are not fighting the ISSUE that plagues us all!

fx's picture

perikleous, that is all true. But you overlook something very important here: The influx of illegal immigrants in the US as well as in Europe is designed precisely to attack the working (resident) class in the US and Europe, to undermine its bargaining power by bringing in hundreds of thousands of poor people willing to work for a fraction of the money. And to stir up exactly the conflicts we are seeing now - which are NOT just between poor and rich, but also between different cultures, social backgrounds, human values, religious views etc.

If we don't shut the borders asap, the clashes between the resident citizens of Europe and the US on one side and the illegal immigrants on the other will only heat up and intensify. Which is exactly, what the rich 0.1 % elites WANT. That's what Soros is all about - don't believe a single word out of his mouth when he talks about "open societies" and "human progress" as his goals. The guy collaborated with the Nazis against his fellow jews and till date doesn't even verbally regret it. That tells you all one needs to know about his values and his character.

Shutting the borders is a necessary prerequisite in order to then concentrate on the fight against the 0.1% and their ever larger power grab. it's the only way to prevent ever more clashes with illegal immigrants. Nice words to the illegals and to the black live matters racists to "unite against the 0.1%" will not work. Shutting borders and getting rid of illegals will work.

I get what youre saying, but the simple fact is uncontrolled borders, coupled with taxpayer funded benefits, are a recipe for national suicide. There is already a legal immigration mechanism in place for those who want to become AMERICANS and contribute something tangible to the fabric of the economy. THe problem is the vast majority of those flooding across the border have no such intentions or skills. They're mostly common peasant folk who want access to the stuff Uncle Sam generously doles out against our will. DOes this make them evil people? No.

But it does not change the fact that the fabric of American society is being fractured and broken into a divided mess of faction shards, each aggressively encouraged to advocate for their own cultural interests, native american citizenry be damned as the seeds of our own destruction yield their kudzu-like vine-growth. If the United States don't take action to secure their borders and control the flow of immigrants....the end result will be the modern equivalent of the fall of Rome. That is, the nation will be destroyed from within.

Well said.

America takes in more Legal immigrants than any other nation on the planet. In the past, it was understood that people came here from around the world to become Americans. That entailed knowledge & appreciation of our history and principles as outlined in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. There are many proud Americans from various backgrounds- Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, etc, etc. But, they still are all Americans.

The illegals have no desire to integrate into this society or become Americans. They are often proud Mexican citizens and have no desire to be otherwise. They come here for money and nothing else.
My Mexican-American friends think it is insanity & unfair to let those who broke our laws stay and benefit from their actions.

Ok George S.  Thanks for the commentary

"Mexicans coming into the US have a lot of citizen support."

Not from this citizen they don't.

Maybe we should demand a referendum then we would find out just how much "citizen support" there really is for lawbreaking illegal immigrants.   No-one has ever asked the American people whether they want to have to pay taxes to support a lot of useless third-worlders with free healthcare, housing, education, & etc.

Message from Hungarian people to America:

"If you've got to build a wall, just build the wall. Don't talk."

Soros is a menace to the world. I cannot get with these left wing Nazis who insist that everyone must do their bidding and allow open borders. It is fucking madness. Soros needs to retire with his billions.

Retire yes.  But without a pot to piss in.  Let him live in a refugee camp.

You live in an alternative reality fantasy world.  Get real and adopt some common sense.

Bullshit bullshit. Boarders are a natural phenomenon. It's not just humans to have borders. It is animals as well. Why the fuck do you think a cat or a wolf marks its territory? It is the border of their territory. If another of the species crossed into their territory there is combat.

Nation states are an extension of tribes. Borders are necessary or the territory will be invaded and the resources will be taken by those who desire them.

 The social benefits that these invaders into Europe are getting are resources and they have being taken away from the indigenous population.

It is basic animal behavior on the invaders part. Most of the native population is inflected with some disease that prevents the natural reaction. Quick way to go extinct.

Even single-celled organisms have walls to regulate the flow coming in and going out.  They would die without them.

Soros needs to spend the rest of his life in prison and contemplate his crimes against humanity in penury.

Soros, like Kissinger, and Brzezinski who has paved the way, needs to die and rid the earth of their stench.

I prefer electrified fences with fortified (and manned) guard towers myself. Keeping things cordial and affable is a simple matter of height and voltage.

The EUSSR does not like walls!

 The Crazy EU

MEPs and legal experts have claimed the veto over the territory’s future after Brexit would give Spain special status among EU nation, when they should be on an equal level. 

The EU’s Brexit negotiating guidelines stated that the Brexit deal will not apply to Gibraltar without an “agreement between the kingdom of Spain and the UK”.

Experts have told the Telegraph that the veto could be illegal under EU law. 

Spain's Gibraltar claim has NO legitimacy and YES would be illegal. Google: ''Gibraltar – Some Relevant International Law'' (1 page) to find out why.

The Spanish claim to Gibraltar has no legitimacy.

London has fallen, England is lost to Islam...

The British government seems determined to appease Muslims and enable jihad terror and Sharia supremacism at all costs:

Muslim rape gang members get over $1,300,000 legal aid to fight deportation.

 Shabir Ahmed, 64 – the ringleader of the Rochdale child sex gang – Abdul Aziz, Adil Khan and Abdul Rauf all received hundreds of thousands of pounds in legal aid at their original trial.

Members of an Muzzi grooming gang are being given legal aid to fight deportation – after it emerged they have already received more than a £1million to unsuccessfully defend criminal charges.

    There was outrage last night as it was revealed the paedophiles – who preyed on girls as young as 13 – are getting more taxpayers’ money to battle moves to strip them of their British passports and send them back to Pakistan.
