Justice Minister Judit Varga has called Hungary a “model state” in terms of managing issues around migration. Her entry on Facebook appeared on Wednesday after Mattias Tesfaye, Denmark’s minister for immigration and integration, called it a mistake that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had been criticised for having erected a fence along Hungary’s southern border in 2015. Varga cited Tesfaye as saying that Denmark advocated strong border defence and that Europe should not make a choice between granting humanitarian assistance and building walls to protect the continent but it should do both.
