You have the right to know: some in Brussels think your national borders are an unfortunate obstacle to immigration

Feb 28, 2019 - Zoltán Kovács

Have you noticed how the bureaucrats in Brussels talk about “border management” instead of saying “border protection” or “border defense”? It’s not a coincidence. It betrays a fundamental difference in how we approach migration. For those in the pro-migration lobby, immigration is a positive outcome and national borders are the obstacles.

You have the right to know: Brussels and the never-ending story of the migrant quota

Feb 27, 2019 - Zoltán Kovács

On Monday, the European Commission issued a response to the government’s communication to Hungarian citizens that “everyone has a right to know what Brussels is planning.” The Commission response was published online in Hungarian as “Facts about the EU’s migration policy” and features an illustration (again in Hungarian) that says “You also have a right to know what is fact and what is fiction.”

These myths deserve to be busted.

Oct 19, 2016 - Zoltán Kovács

“In 2015, a migratory wave of unforeseen proportions reached the borders of Europe,” according to the text presenting the proposed amendments to the Fundamental Law of Hungary. “One and a half million people crossed Schengen borders illegally. The cultural and economic integration of the masses of newcomers has made Europe face an unsolvable task, and uncontrolled border-crossings have significantly increased the danger of terror.

PM Orbán Demands Democratic EU, Exposes Soros-Clinton Ties and Political Agenda

May 20, 2016 - Zoltán Kovács

While elites will inevitably maneuver to shape politics in a democracy, it is up to the people to decide on a country’s direction, Prime Minister Orbán emphasized in his regular radio interview this morning.

Will Brussels Ever Wake Up?

May 12, 2016 - Zoltán Kovács

Jaws dropped across the European Union last week as the Eurocrats revealed their latest proposal.
