Viktor Orban is pouring resources into border patrols to stop migrants
Several high quality marketing videos showing border agents in helicopters and speed boats have been released to attract applicants by the nation’s border agency force.
Viktor Orban the Hungarian Prime Minister told successful applicants they will “protect Hungary’s borders, Hungarian homes and be defending Europe”.
There is no terrorism here, there is no mass violence, there are no trucks being driven into crowds of people

He said: “There is no terrorism here, there is no mass violence, there are no trucks being driven into crowds of people. But please do not forget that this does not mean that such atrocities cannot happen to us Hungarians.”
New cadets will be asked to defend the 175km long Hungary-Serbia border fence. The border hunters will be tasked with stopping the migrants that cross the fence every night.

The border-hunters receive normal police training, including firearms use, with extra modules about Islam and other cultures they might come into contact with.
Orban added: “The truth is that Europe would have been better off if it had not attacked Hungarian responses, which have proved to be viable and useful, and which have since been adopted by an increasing number of other countries.
“The truth is that illegal immigration and unlimited migration simultaneously threaten the security of our everyday lives, our economic achievements and our culture.”
Last month more than 80 migrants were caught each night trying to sneak into Hungary. The majority successfully scaled the border fence or cut through it. They were then "escorted" by police back to the gates, and sent back into Serbia.

Hungarian police chief Karoly Papp said: “We don't hunt down anyone, migrants or others.
"The police have to keep strictly and humanely to the rules laid down in the Hungarian constitution, the police law, and the [EU] Schengen border regulations.
"Of course there are some to whom we say, 'We cannot let you into the training course, because you are not suitable for a career in the police.' And there are others who would be suitable, but at the last minute have second thoughts."
