Government rejects quota system

Therefore Hungary will not take back a single expelled illegal migrant, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office stated.

János Lázár said: Western-European countries notified Hungary of the expulsion of some 40,000 people; however, they did not enter the European Union at Hungary but at Greece, and consequently, the individuals concerned must be sent back there.

He added: the southern security border closure is working, and successfully prevents illegal border crossing.

In response to the statements made by Colleen Bell, US Ambassador to Hungary, he remarked: not even at her request “shall we take anyone in, or shall we allow anyone to cross the country”.

He added: Hungary is a member of the European Union, and not of the United States, and will not tolerate the interference of any country that is not a member of the EU.
