Interior ministry official warns of increasing migration pressure

January 13th, 2020

In the first twelve days of the year, a total of 1,630 migrants made attempts to illegally enter Hungary, the interior ministry's state secretary told a press conference on Monday. Karoly Kontrat noted that last year 17,200 illegal entrants were stopped. Referring to information from Frontex, Kontrat said that in 2019 the number of migrants along the Balkans route had doubled. Currently there are about 100,000 migrants on their way to Europe and "more and more are approaching the Hungarian border", he said.
