Hungary to seek public's views on immigration

Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban arrives at the European Council headquarters for an extraordinary summit of European leaders to deal with a worsening migration crisis, on April 23, 2015 in BrusselsHungary’s government said Friday it will seek the public’s views on immigration, including on whether asylum-seekers should be made to work, as Prime Minister Viktor Orban called existing EU rules “stupid”. “People will be asked (by questionnaire) whether they agree that illegal border-crossers should be taken into custody, or whether they should be deported immediately,” government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said. Around eight million people in 10-million-strong Hungary, which receives the second-highest number of asylum applicants by size of population in the EU, will be sent the “public consultation” in May. Since 2013, the central European country — part of Europe’s visa-free Schengen zone — has seen a sharp rise in numbers of asylum-seekers, most arriving at its southern border with non-EU member Serbia.
