Hungarian PM wants EU to send out all illegal migrants

Hungarian PM wants EU to send out all illegal migrantsThe European Union should round up and deport all illegal immigrants and assemble them in EU-supervised refugee camps beyond the bloc's borders where they can then file for asylum, Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban said.

"This could be an island, it could be a coastal area in North Africa, but the security and supplies of that area must be guaranteed by the EU in its own interest," Orban told the news website Origo in an interview published on Thursday.

The firebrand premier has provoked controversy with a tough rhetoric about migrants and a razor wire fence along Hungary's southern border, as well as a referendum against mandatory resettlement quotas on October 2.

"Those who came illegally must be rounded up and shipped out," Orban said.

"We must set up large refugee camps outside the EU, with armed security and financial support provided by the Union. Everyone who came illegally must return there. There they can file for asylum," he added.

"There is only one solution that befits everyone, including us who are not yet in trouble because we defended ourselves and countries like Germany which are in trouble: Taking (migrants) out of the Union," Orban said, referring migrants’ relocation around the continent.

"Borders must be used, because they protect us. Some imagine a globe without borders...I am one of those who would not like to see the civilization of the world change," he added while talked about EU’s borders strengthening as a way to prevent a repeat of the 2015 flow of migrants.
