By ALEXEY GORSUZIANSKI Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has promised to crack down on anti-migrant abuse in the countrys borders, saying the country has no place for it in a nation of 1.1 million.
Borisov made the announcement in an interview with Bulgarian daily BGNES on Friday, where he said he would implement tough measures against migrants.
He said: “I am convinced that Bulgaria will not remain an open country, and we will not accept any kind of abuse of people in our country.
I am absolutely convinced that we will take the necessary measures to prevent such abuse.”
Borisovich also reiterated that Bulgaria does not need migrants to provide jobs and income for the country’s population.
The government has already announced measures aimed at combating abuse of migrant workers, including banning migrant workers from work during work hours, and preventing employers from hiring migrant workers in their own businesses.
Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev has said migrants are taking jobs from local people.
