It is "unacceptable" that the European Parliament will repeatedly vote on migrant visas, says minister

Gergely Gulyás said that while Hungary and other countries are making enormous efforts to protect their external borders, the migration visas throw up the possibility that masses of people may come to Europe

Gergely Gulyás, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office, says it is unacceptable that the European Parliament will repeatedly vote on the migrant (humanitarian) visa.

Gulyás highlighted that the issue will again be presented to the EP without genuine alterations, with mere window dressing amendments, and it seems they will continue trying until MEPs reach the answer the supporters of migration believe to be the correct one.

The minister said that while Hungary and other countries are making enormous efforts to protect their external borders, the migration visas throw up the possibility that masses of people may come to Europe.

In light of the fact that the proposal has already been rejected once before, this procedure is anti-democratic, Gulyás said.

The minister said if someone takes the rules of democracy seriously, decisions must be honored and respected. However, today the EP does not even honor its own decisions.

The minister concluded that the greatest challenge of the 2019 elections will be for a majority to come into being within the EP which rejects illegal immigration.
