Hungary joins US in withdrawing from UN global migration agreement

Via Billy

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, left, and Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó have led the government's hardline stance on illegal immigration.

Hungary’s populist government announced this week that it is withdrawing from a U.N. global compact on migration, describing the agreement as “in conflict with common sense” and national security -- making it the second country after the U.S. to reject the compact.

“The primary issue for us is the security of Hungary and the Hungarian people, and this document is totally at odds with the country’s security interests,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said in Budapest on Wednesday. “According to the Government’s position, the U.N. Global Compact for Migration is in conflict with common sense and also with the intent to restore European security.”
