Fidesz to push for scrapping migrant credit cards in new EP

Fidesz will represent “the will of Hungarians in Brussels” and in the May EP elections they voted “to stop migration, protect Europe’s Christian culture and stand up for a Europe of nations.”

Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party will initiate scrapping the scheme of anonymous debit cards issued to migrants, in the new European Parliament.

According to MTI, Fidesz will represent “the will of Hungarians in Brussels” and in the May EP elections they voted “to stop migration, protect Europe’s Christian culture and stand up for a Europe of nations.”

The distribution of such cards is still under way, Brussels has issued over 70,000 of them this year alone. Over the past years, 500 billion HUF (EUR 1.55m) has been deposited with about 2 million such prepaid bank cards without any security checks.

“It is unacceptable that Brussels is spending the European taxpayers’ money on these anonymous cards that may allow even dangerous individuals to get access to support,” Balázs Hidvéghi said.
