We cannot fight human trafficking gangs without a border guard service

Jobbik welcomes the government's initiative on a fence along our southern border while also pointing out some flaws in the plan. It is obvious that a barbed wire fence on its own cannot mean a real solution.

In his press conference on Thursday, Dániel Z. Kárpát, the deputy leader of Jobbik's Parliamentary Group welcomed that the Hungarian government finally began to properly address the migration problem which the patriotic party had been talking about for years.

The politician explained that his party obviously supports the idea of establishing a border fence, but he also mentioned that the cabinet might not have discussed this concept with Brussels. So the plans may be intended for domestic political purposes only. 

"Nevertheless, the direction of the move is right" emphasized Dániel Z. Kárpát, adding that "a final solution would require much more drastic measures."

The opposition MP also pointed out that Jobbik was ready to lend a helping hand to each and every individual running from real persecution.

"In this situation, the establishment of an independent border guard service must not be put off any longer." the MP said. In his view, the service that was downsized and merged into the police in 2008 cannot perform as efficiently as an autonomous authority.

Jobbik has proposed several amendments of the national budget in order to allocate billions of HUF for the border guard service, even while it functions as part of the police. The proposals are intended to provide sufficient technical equipment and personnel for an efficient operation.

Dániel Z. Kárpát warned that the announcement of the border fence is expected to trigger a panic and a massive influx of refugees, the first signs of which are already experienced.

"In order to prevent it, we will need an astonishing volume of human resources," the politician warned, calling attention to the superhuman struggle by László Toroczkai, the mayor of Ásotthalom and his three ranger co-workers at the green border each and every day. Jobbik's MP also said that he joined the rangers in their work to get a first-hand experience and he found evidence that there was not sufficient police presence in the area due to the lack of appropriate resources. All he could see was a merely reactive, observational attitude by the authorities.

Dániel Z. Kárpát went on to talk about the events that had taken place in the nearby city of Szeged.

As we already reported, illegal immigrant groups have shown up in the vicinity and the suburban areas of the county seat. Some of them are disembarked by human traffickers to be picked up and driven to Budapest or Vienna by certain local cab drivers.

"The border fence is useless if we cannot stop the criminals; human traffickers will find alternative routes to get around the line of defence" he added.

Summarizing Jobbik's long-term goals, Dániel Z. Kárpát said:

- set up an independent border guard service and equip it with the necessary material resources;

- restrict all currently unrestricted or partially restricted refugee hostels in order to minimize contacts with the local population as well as terrorist threats;

- establish all refugee camps outside residential areas;

- create the legal grounds for turning refugees away;

- finally, find a solution for the challenge posed by the ten and hundred thousands of refugees deported back to Hungary from Western Europe.

After giving the reasonably expected humanitarian aid to refugees, Jobbik's goal is to provide a reassuring solution for their future, but somewhere outside Hungary.
