Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó announced plans Wednesday to build a 13-foot-tall fence to prevent illegal immigration from Serbia.
Saying that Hungary couldn’t wait for the European Union to develop an immigration solution, Szijjártó announced during a press conference that officials would design a plan for a 109-mile fence along the border with Serbia.
Some 54,000 immigrants have come to Hungary so far this year, compared to 43,000 in 2014. Police registered 10,000 illegal crossings in January alone.
Kosovo, whose economic situation is deteriorating, has seen many of its citizens migrate to neighboring Serbia and then enter Hungary.
