Distrtict 8 Mayor: Terrorists could be amongst migrants

Parliament

Opposition leftist parties “need to understand” that “with time, terrorists could emerge among illegal immigrants”, District 8 Mayor Máté Kocsis said in an interview with Hungarian daily Napi Gazdaság.

The mayor added that the citizens of Budapest do not “perceive as many problems as actually exist among illegal immigrants arriving in Hungary.” The mayor added that he “is happy” about the Hungarian Helsinki Committee suing him for his Facebook entry on August 4, which the committee claims “openly generated hatred”, as now Kocsis has an opportunity to tell the court how refugees behave in his district.

Kocsis said that he received several complaints from residents about the behavior of refugees in his district, and “a mayor’s duty is to solve such issues”, while the “opposition media” posts “heartbreaking photos and nice stories about migrants, the reality, however, is different.”

Kocsis had earlier planned to propose a bill to parliament introducing mandatory annual drug tests for journalists, children between the ages of 12 and 18 and politicians.
