Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says he’s open to accepting refugees, but only those fleeing liberal policies in Western Europe.
Orban used his annual state of the nation address Friday to list five threats Hungary faces, including EU policies and Hungarian billionaire George Soros.
He also welcomed Europeans who are fed up with their liberal governments to move to Hungary.
“Of course we can give shelter to the real refugees: Germans, Dutch, French, Italians, scared politicians and journalists,” Orban said in his address. “Christians who had to flee their own country, those people who want to find here the Europe that they lost at their home.”
Hungary recently introduced plans to put migrants in indefinite detention while their asylum applications are processed. The migrants will be housed in shipping containers to stop them from moving freely across Europe.
“The foxes are let into the henhouse to compete freely, and nobody can stop the foxes winning time after time,” Orban said.
