“It was an invasion,” said Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of Asotthalom, regarding the thousands of migrants that formerly crossed Hungary’s borders daily in 2015. But apparently, they haven’t had a single Syrian crossing in over 6 months. According to locals at the border, “they don’t even try anymore”.
From the beginning of the migrant crisis, Hungary has been one of the main access points for migrants on their way to Germany or Sweden, but the devastation they caused en route was too much for Hard Line leader, Victor Orban.
Despite increasing tensions with the European Union and other member states within the EU, Orban has stuck to his guns and completely halted illegal immigration through the border. And to do it, very simply, he built a wall.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Hungary’s second border fence has just been completed in the southern town of Asotthalom. The 96-mile long, 14 ft. tall double-line of defense doesn’t look too intimidating from a distance.
Go a little closer and you’ll notice several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks, cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence.
Add a few hundred military officers and “border hunters” and it’s virtually impossible to break
