Pro-migration politicians in Brussels continue their attack against Hungary

“Despite growing attempts to put pressure on Hungary, neither Hungarian citizens, nor the government and Hungarian MEPs in the European People’s Party will change their position opposing migration,” MEP Tamás Deutsch said

Pro-migration politicians in Brussels are continuing their attacks against Hungary and Hungarian citizens.

MEP Tamás Deutsch said evidence of this was demonstrated at Monday’s hearing at the General Affairs Council (GAC) of the European Union.

Deutsch pointed out that it was bizarre that Judith Sargentini, one of the most openly pro-migration MEPs, will get a chance to voice her “baseless accusations” against Hungary which she has already outlined in her report.

The MEP said that Monday’s hearing at the GAC is part of the campaign by pro-migration politicians in preparation for next year’s European parliamentary election.

Deutsch highlighted that one of the strongest conflicts in the EU is the dispute between pro-migration and anti-migration forces. He added that Hungary has taken resolute and successful steps to stop the wave of mass migration towards Europe over the past three years and this is where their problem lies.

The MEP pointed out that the Hungarian people made a clear and unambiguous decision at a referendum that they reject the quotas for settling illegal migrants and at the spring elections they expressed that Hungary does not want to become an immigrant country.

Deutsch said he believed these democratic decisions had triggered the efforts to pressurise Hungary, including the Sargentini Report “with all its lies, oversights, falsehoods and baseless political accusations.”

Despite growing attempts to put pressure on Hungary, neither Hungarian citizens, nor the government and Hungarian MEPs in the European People’s Party will change their position opposing migration, he said.

Hungary rejects the translocation of migrants already in Europe and their distribution in line with any form of mandatory quota, “as well as the EU taking away the right for border protection, the pro-migration efforts of a network of organisations affiliated to US billionaire George Soros, the UN migration package and the distribution of anonymous bank cards prepaid with EU monies to migrants,” he said.

Deutsch concluded that the continuing attacks against Hungarian citizens only highlight the significance of next May’s EP elections when all EU citizens will get a chance to express their opinion on migration and break the pro-migration majority in the EP.
