Left-wing organizations and organizations working closely with them are trying to deny the European Union’s quota plan related to illegal immigration, Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács has said.
Kovács said it is well worth taking a look at the left to see why they are denying the quota lawsuit and the quota plan. In his view, the draft – which the left itself voted for – clearly indicates that there is a quota plan, by virtue of which the EU will seek to distribute the people arriving in Europe for a prolonged period and in a sustainable manner, and there is also mention of the organizations which are working on the legalisation of illegal migration.
He said that in the past six to seven years, they have got used to the fact that if there is a contradiction on issues concerning sensitive debates and topics”, the opposition and organizations associated with them, such as non-governmental organizations, organizations funded from abroad, "raise a hue and cry in public opinion”. On top of that, they "mostly resort to lies”, but it transpires with time that the Hungarian regulations conform to the EU’s expectations, he added. In Kovács’s view, "there are political considerations and differences” behind these initiatives.
As he said, the biggest contradiction, “a diagonally opposite view” exists on the issue of illegal immigration. The government does not wish to let migrants either into Hungary, or into Europe because it takes the view that "this is not the future of the continent”. These organizations "have a vested interest in a different scenario”, he remarked.
