Deputy PM: EU “invited” migrants to Europe “without asking us; now that they are here they seek to distribute them”

Addressing the Budapest Forum for Christian Communicators, Zsolt Semjén stated that the European bureaucracy’s moves towards Hungary concerning migration have been “unfair, unlawful and anti-democratic”.

Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén has stated that the European bureaucracy’s moves towards Hungary concerning migration have been “unfair, unlawful and anti-democratic”.

Addressing the Budapest Forum for Christian Communicators, Deputy PM Semjén insisted that the EU “invited” migrants to Europe “without asking us; now that they are here they seek to distribute them”.

The Deputy PM added that unskilled migrants would be “forced onto” Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Romania, and noted the dividing line between economic migrants and people persecuted because of their political stance or religious beliefs. He said Hungary will help “all true refugees” and meet all its international obligations.

Regarding the persecution of Christians, Deputy PM Semjén said that it included relativization and suppression of Christian values in Western Europe, not only the persecution of Christian communities in the East. He noted that Hungary’s government has so far helped some 50,000 people in the latter category.

Deputy PM Semjén highlighted that migration is bad, because one cannot live their life in their homeland, adding that situations in which people are forced to emigrate are primarily caused by bad governments.
