Liberals call for unification to overcome hate

Parliament

Anett Bősz, an executive of the Hungarian Liberal Party, said that by joining forces, the Fidesz governmentʼs "hate campaign" against the tide of migrants  "can be overcome", citing the thousands of volunteers who are helping assylum seekers at refugee camps "despite government propaganda."

"The Liberals are certain that by joining forces, we can tear down the fence of hate, which Fidesz erected not just on the border but between people as well," said the Liberal executive.

In an attempt to preserve Hungary as a nation of Hungarians, Fidesz responded that it rejects "the dangerous pro-immigration stance of the left," saying that the border fence is intended to protect Hungary and Europe and that without it the country would be defenseless against an "illegal migrant invasion."
