    Major Migrant Crisis in Europe (1819)

    Some 900 areas in EU capitals are off-limits to local residents because of large numbers of undocumented immigrants accumulated there, according to Hungarian government’s data.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The data was posted on the government’s official website that seeks to raise awareness of dangers associated with illegal immigration as Hungarians prepare to vote in a referendum on the EU plan to share out refugees based on binding quotas.

    "The ‘no-go’ areas cannot or hardly can be controlled by authorities," the website reads. "In European cities, such as Paris, London, Stockholm and Berlin, where there is a high number of immigrants, more than 900 of these ‘no-go’ zone exist."

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced the referendum in February and hinted that he hoped Hungarians would defy EU’s mandatory resettlement quotas.

    According to information on the website, a migrant arrives in Europe every 12 seconds. Many of them cross into the European Union unchecked and there is a risk that terrorists could blend into the crowds of refugees fleeing conflict in the Middle East and North Africa.
