Hungarian government continues fight over resettlement quotas as its revealed there will be no cap on migrant numbers

Previous dialogue concerning the resettlement of a few thousand people on a voluntary and ad hoc basis was discussed, they are now talking about a mandatory and permanent system of distribution with no upper threshold, Csaba Dömötör said

The Hungarian government continues its fight over the mandatory resettlement quotas as new details come to light surrounding the cap on the numbers of immigrants Brusssels wants to relocate.

According to Csaba Dömötör, the Parliamentary State Secretary at the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister, previous dialogue concerning the resettlement of a few thousand people on a voluntary and ad hoc basis was discussed, they are now talking about a mandatory and permanent system of distribution with no upper threshold.

“It is clear from the statements of recent days that the ruling in the quota case is just the first step, because Brussels is moving up to the next level and is giving new impetus to the resettlement program”, he said.

“We might also state that the implementation of the ‘Soros plan’ has begun”, he added. Brussels plans to bring immigrants into Europe every year and distribute them among the EU’s member states, he highlighted.

“The Hungarian government rejects mandatory resettlement and will take action against it using all possible instruments," Dömötör added. “There can be no compromise in this, we are playing with an open hand”, he said.

“The quota system is unviable because it does not solve the problem, and in fact provides an open invitation to millions more immigrants. It is unfair, because it is attempting to override the spheres of competence of member states, and it is dangerous because it ignores the security risk that is absolutely obvious to everyone," he explained.

“How can anyone believe that we can guarantee the transparency and security of the resettlement programs when we know that 11,000 fake Syrian passports have been found in the possession of ISIS?," he said.
