More than half a million signatures have already been collected in support of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s new program announced last week.

During an interview on Kossuth Radio. Fidesz group leader Máté Kocsis said the signature drive will continue with the help of some 20,000 activists.

Kocsis said that in line with the program’s first proposal, the right to manage migration must be taken away from “Brussels bureaucrats” and returned to national governments.

The group leader stressed that no country should be forced to take in migrants, no migrants should be allowed to enter Europe without valid documents, the scheme of issuing anonymous pre-paid bank cards to migrants should be stopped and migrant visas should not be granted.

He added that organizations linked to US financier George Soros supporting migration should not be granted European Union aid, nobody should suffer discrimination in Europe for claiming to be Christian and the EU should have anti-migration leaders.

Kocsis said it was appalling that the current leaders in Brussels were handing out money to uncontrolled masses by way of “migrant cards”. Fidesz believes a significant part of Europe was dissatisfied because people are aware of the serious terrorism risks of uncontrolled migration, he added.
