Hungarian parliament rejects Soros plan
The Hungarian Parliament has officially voted to reject the EU’s implementation of the "Soros plan" forcing EU member states to take in a compulsory quota of migrants.
Published: December 14, 2017, 6:48 pm
The resolution passed with 142 votes against only 3 supporters of the plan. Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government will launch a “permanent embargo” of the mandatory redistribution of migrants being done “at the expense of European nations”.
The adopted text reads: “The mandatory relocation of migrants would irrevocably alter Europe’s culture and future.”
The Parliamentary resolution soundly rejected handing over power to “Soros organisations” that promote and push immigration.
“The EU should respect Hungary’s sovereignty and the will of the Hungarians expressed in the referendum,” the text states.
More than 2.2 million people took part in the national consultation.
Voters were asked whether or not they approve of Soros’ project for the EU to resettle at least one million migrants per year in European Union member states.
They were also asked whether or not they would support tax increases to pay over as welfare to immigrants, as well as whether they would accept minimizing the Hungarian language and culture in order to help migrants “integrate”.
In September Christian Lüth, the press spokesman for the anti-immigration German parliamentary party, Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), declared their candidate for the Charlemagne Prize to be Hungary’s Prime Minister.
The Charlemagne Prize is given for “Distinguished service on behalf of European unification.”
Leading AfD member Beatrix von Storch has long been an admirer of Orban. Von Stroch has served as deputy leader for the party, and is also a member of German nobility.
She was born as Beatrix Amelie Ehrengard Eilika, Duchess of Oldenburg and should actually be addressed as “Her Highness”. She has met with the Hungarian Prime Minister several times and has travelled to Budapest.
According to press reports, Orban’s relationship is shaky with Germany’s conservative CDU/CSU party coalition as well as with Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has avoided meetings with him.
But Merkel is generally despised by the Hungarian public, while Vladimir Putin is more popular in Hungary than his German counterpart.
Orban promised that 2017 would “be an exhilarating year”. He said there would be “surprises, scratching of heads, raising of eyebrows, rubbing of eyes”. People would ask each other: “Is everything that is coming undone and taking shape in front of our eyes really possible?”
The outcome of the referendum is a blow to the US State Department as it has courted controversy by announcing $700 000 worth of funding for the anti-Orban Hungarian media, angering the country’s anti-globalist, conservative government.
The funding was announced by US Chargé d‘Affaires David Kostelancik, who has previously openly criticised the Trump administration by alluding to “apparent inconsistencies in [US] foreign policy”.
