Hungarian Police to Continue to Protect Borders & Prevent Illegal Entries in 2022

Hungarian police officers will continue to help protect borders and prevent illegal entry, among other things, by arresting people smugglers and illegal immigrants.

In this regard, the authorities in Hungary have confirmed that a total of ten Hungarian police will go to Serbia and 30 to North Macedonia to patrol the border and ban illegal entry of people.

In addition to being in service directly along the border, they will also operate along roads within the country. The units will be equipped with vehicles, night vision equipment and mobile thermal cameras,” said the statement published by About Hungary, according to TheSchengen.com.

Previously, the authorities in Hungary announced that they would continue to protect its borders from the growing number of migrants trying to enter this country illegally.

In addition, the government of Hungary previously passed the law called “Stop Soros” in order to prevent another influx of illegal immigrants as well as help migrants apply for international protection and apply for residence permits in this country.

On the initiative of the Brussels Commission, the European Court of Justice ruled today that the Stop Soros Act, passed in 2018, which criminalizes the regulation and financing of illegal immigration, and the constitutional amendment adopted in parallel with the law, prohibits the resettlement of immigrants,” read the declaration published at the time by the Hungarian Minister of State Zoltan Kovacs.

In October, Hungarian authorities announced that the average daily illegal border crossing was 319, compared to 97 during the same period one year earlier.

The increase in the number of people trying to reach Hungary illegally prompted the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, Gergeli Golias, to call on the European authorities to help cover at least one part of the costs of the country’s border fence.

Last year, authorities in Hungary also announced that a total of 50 Czech police officers had arrived in Budapest to help protect the EU’s Schengen border in southern Hungary.

According to the Deputy Chief of Police, Janos Kocek, the protection of the southern borders provides security in all European countries.

Based on figures published by Kuczik, more than 7,000 people attempted to reach Hungary illegally during 2019, while the number rose to 46,000 over the past year.

The same showed that the number of people who tried to reach the central European country illegally during the first nine months of last year reached 90,000.
