Fidesz Group Leader: 2019 European parliamentary elections will be contested between those that support migration and those that don’t

Máte Kocsis said the line of division in European politics between “those serving the interests of the Soros empire” and those “who are willing and able to stop migration” was becoming more clearly defined

Fidesz’s parliamentary group leader has said the 2019 European parliamentary elections will be contested between those that support migration and those that don’t.

Máte Kocsis said the report on Hungary by the European Parliament’s civil liberties committee (LIBE), which he said was “teeming with lies”, was drafted in preparation for next year’s elections.

Kocsis said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s mission in the EP debate on the report scheduled will be to defend Hungary from “unfounded and unfair attacks”. He added that the prime minister will make it clear in the debate that the report is “politically motivated” and was drafted by “[US financier] George Soros’s associates in Brussels” with the aim of putting pressure on Hungary.

The group leader said the line of division in European politics between “those serving the interests of the Soros empire” and those “who are willing and able to stop migration” was becoming more and more clearly defined.

During an interview on Kossuth Radio, Kocsis said people like French President Emmanuel Macron and Green MEP Judith Sargentini, the author of the LIBE report, belonged in pro-migration camp. He said the opposing side comprised politicians opposing migration and moving closer to the lines embraced by PM Orbán and Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Kocsis insisted that Europe’s future hinges on whether it will ultimately become a “continent of immigrants” or succeed in protecting itself.

Kocsis said Hungary was picking up more and more allies in its goal to make sure that Europe’s destiny is the latter, naming the other three Visegrad countries, Italy and Austria as examples. He added that it looked like the tide on migration policy has also turned in Germany.

Kocsis concluded that national governments in the EU were starting to enforce the will of their people and protect their countries, while the leadership in Brussels was using the EP election campaign to “continue to force this failed migration policy”.
