Budapest Mayor: Migrant situation becomes unmanageable

History

Budapest Mayor István Tarlós said that despite the metropolitan councilʼs effort to hand illegal migrants humanely, the situation has become unmanageable, as Transit Zones in both the Keleti and Nyugati railway stations became full by Friday afternoon, Hungarian news agency MTI reported yesterday.

"Important junctions have been invaded by masses of people of uncontrollable identity, spreading beyond limits and neglecting the most basic rules, and the lack of legal means makes it increasingly impossible to take action in the interest of the city’s residents," the mayor said.

Tarlós added he supports the government’s plans to have the Parliament pass stricter regulations in a fast-track procedure affecting migration in the penal code, and also condemned the European Union, calling it intolerable that it "has demonstrated almost complete incompetence" in handling the migration problem as a whole.
