On April 8th, Hungarian voters made it clear that they don’t want to see Hungary become an immigrant country and they reject the idea of being told who may be given the right to live in their own country. Responding to that mandate, the will of the people, the Hungarian government has recently submitted a proposed amendment to Hungary’s Fundamental Law. Here’s a look at the details.
Hungary’s Chief Security Advisor says the country's anti-migration constitutional amendment can't be trumped by EU
György Bakondi said the essence of the "Stop Soros" package is that activities assisting illegal migration are not humanitarian activities but are in fact activities that “pose a threat to the country’s security”
More than 3.36 million Hungarians voted “no” in the October 2nd referendum on the EU’s proposed quota system, an overwhelming 98 percent voting in favor of the government’s position that the decision on relocation of non-Hungarians should remain a national competence.
In 2015, a migratory wave of unforeseen proportions reached the borders of Europe. One and a half million people have 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.
Yesterday, the Hungarian Parliament amended the Fundamental Law, our constitution, to allow the national assembly to declare a state of terrorism threat and grant temporary, extraordinary powers to the government.
