Hungary’s Prime Minister is hiring 3,000 “border hunters” to police its new border wall, as the nation votes on a European Union migrant quota referendum.
The new border hunters will be equipped with trucks, night vision goggles, and sniffing dogs. Hungarian officials defend the hires saying they will augment Hungary’s border police by also manning watch towers.
“Every single migrant poses a public security and terror risk,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban previously told reporters. The nation-wide referendum is expected to reject the EU migrant quotas, which decide how many migrants each member state must take.
