70,000 Migrants Preparing to Swarm Europe Via "Soros Express," Hungary Warns

A mass of 70,000 migrants has gathered in the Balkans where they are preparing to swarm Europe via the "Soros Express," Hungarian officials are warning.

Hungary announced it has mobilized 2,300 troops to be deployed to its southern border on short notice as thousands of migrants threaten to penetrate into Croatia from Bosnia, where they have been accumulating for months and are now actively engaging Croatian border forces in violent clashes.

"What happened on the Bosnian-Croatian border, at Bihac, cannot be allowed to happen here," Lajos Kósa, head of parliament’s defense and law enforcement committee, told reporters during a visit to the border.

State media outlet About Hungary paraphrased additional comments by Kósa, adding, "NGOs organize illegal migration and a majority are financed by the likes of U.S. billionaire George Soros, which pave the way for the illegal entry of migrants into the EU on the Bosnian-Croatian border."

"Kósa confirmed that at present there are about 70,000 migrants heading for western Europe waiting along the Balkan route."

Hungarian parliamentary spokesman Istvan Hollik compared the current situation in the Balkans to the slew of migrant 'caravans' making their way from Central America to the U.S., asserting that both are being spurred onward financially by the "Soros Express" as a "dress rehearsal" for eventual endless, "automatic" migration from the third world into the West.

"The Soros network is working hard to resettle migrants not only in Europe, but in the U.S., bringing in thousands on the 'Soros Express,'" Hungary Journal reported, paraphrasing Hollik. "By grabbing the attention of the international media, they want to provoke U.S. authorities, creating conflict, just as they did when migrants rioted in Roszke, on Hungary’s border with Serbia, in 2015, then get the U.S. authorities to surrender their right to protect the border, he added."
