Quote: "For example, criticising the motives of the refugees is racism."
Quote: "I think all populism, this kind of colourful use of language, that has been used on this immigration debate, should be left aside."
Quotes: "Even though we have 381 600 unemployed people, we have shortage of workers. We need workers to Finland. We must turn this influx of asylum seekers into a chance, when we unavoidably are going to face the situation.", "Finns must accept this. We must make sure, that our systems work efficiently, righteously, and humanely. This requires of us to learn."
When Hungary built the wall to control the mass immigration, Orpo said: "Hungary's actions are not of this world. Barbed wire and children do not kind of fit together. Walls are not a solution, because then they will just find another route."
