Sie haben das Recht zu wissen: Brüssel und die endlose Geschichte der Migrantenquote

Feb 27, 2019 - Zoltán Kovács

Am Montag hat die Europäische Kommission zu der an die ungarischen Bürger gerichtete Kommunikation der Regierung, wonach „jeder das Recht hat zu wissen was Brüssel vorhat” eine Stellung genommen. Die Reaktion der Kommission wurde online auf Ungarisch unter dem Titel „Fakten über die Migrationspolitik der EU” veröffentlicht und beinhaltet eine Illustration (wiederum in ungarischer Sprache), die sagt „Sie haben das Recht zu wissen, was Fakt und was Fiktion ist.”

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.”

Just how long have the pro-migration forces in Brussels been scheming about a migrant quota?

Jan 14, 2019 - Zoltán Kovács

Some claim that the notion of a pro-migration lobby is nonsense, that Brussels came up with the migrant quota for the sake of Member States and in response to the crisis that erupted in 2015. This idea that there are forces at work in the background driving an agenda to enable migration to Europe rather than stop it – this idea, some say, is the stuff of conspiracy theories. If you’re one of those who still believe it’s nonsense, let me show you something interesting.

PM Orbán: A mandatory migrant quota is out of the question, external borders must be defended

Mar 22, 2018 - Zoltán Kovács

They’re not giving in, those who see quotas and pro-immigration policies as Europe’s answer to the migration crisis. We’ll see a “decisive showdown” in June, said Prime Minister Orbán this week, when the EU’s heads of state and government will gather in Brussels again. Immigration will feature as one of the overriding issues on the agenda.

The European Parliament has decided to carry out the Soros plan

Nov 17, 2017 - Zoltán Kovács

Hate to say we told you so, but that moment that Hungary has long been warning against has arrived. The European Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee (LIBE) has approved a regulation that would introduce a mandatory migrant quota system without an upper limit on the number of migrants. If this regulation is enacted, the European Parliament has approved the permanent quota system and is carrying out the plan of billionaire financier George Soros, seemingly point by point.

PM Orbán: European Court decision won’t change Hungary’s immigration policies

Sep 08, 2017

Hungary is a member of the European Union, EU treaties must be respected, therefore the rulings of the European Court of Justice must be acknowledged, said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán this morning in response to the decision from the European Court of Justice on migrant quotas. However, he added, that is not a reason to change Hungary’s immigration policies, which reject mass migration.

Myth: If they want EU funds, Eastern European members must tow the line on Brussels' migration dictates

Apr 25, 2017 - Zoltán Kovács

In today’s information-saturated world, we encounter a number of arguments and story lines that become popular and oft-repeated despite having almost no basis in fact. They sound compelling and have many people who would very much like to believe them, but they’re not true. The longer they linger, however, the more they get in the way. These myths deserve to be busted.
