EU Needs Fence on Bulgaria, Macedonia Borders with Greece to Stop Migrants, Orban Says
Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said that the EU needs a fence along Greece’s borders with Macedonia and Bulgaria to cope with the ongoing migrant influx and save the bloc’s Schengen area of passport-free travel.
"If we cannot secure the outer border (of the EU), regardless of how costly or demanding that is, we will destroy the Schengen regime by ourselves," Reuters quoted Orban as saying during a visit to Slovenia on Friday .
Two weeks ago, Orban told Hungary’s public radio that Bulgaria, which is bordering Greece to the north, should be admitted into Schengen Area because the EU’s deal with Turkey to stem the flow of migrants into Europe in exchange for possible financial aid of EUR 3 B wouldn’t be enough to deter migrant pressure.
Hungary's Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has also called for talks with Bulgaria and Macedonia to curb the migrant inflow as the EU’s southern frontiers– and particularly Greece’s long maritime border - were still wide open to the ongoing influx of migrants and refugees from the Middle East and Africa.

All EU initiatives will be .....to little to late. Only change of the administration and rethinking of the liberal open society and etch....... gibberish may have some result.. and real real measures to reverse the demographics of Europe. But with the World bank and its doctrine in charge it is impossible.
