Hungarian government eyes punitive taxes for ‘refugee’ activists
Viktor Orban is planning to increase pressure on migrant enablers and their supporters within the country. NGOs are facing punitive taxes, and it is not the first measure of this kind being rolled out.

Hungary’s popular government plans additional taxes for NGOs helping migrants by forcing them to cover their expenses mostly by foreign donations.
Hungarian Interior Minister Sandor Pinter announced the new measures on Wednesday after a government meeting. The tax imposed on “refugee” activists will be 25 percent.
The measures will be filed to parliament in February, Janos Lazar, Minister in Charge of the Prime Minister’s Office, told Bloomberg on Thursday. The draft bill will be voted by parliament after deliberation in different councils and leagues.
The measure is part of a planned package of laws intended to regulate the work of NGOs which are associated with the Soros Plan. Billionaire George Soros has largely aided and financed the migrant invasion into Europe.
The “Stop-Soros-Package” specifies moreover that organisations which aid “illegal migrants”, will have to register with the courts.
Persons considered to be aiding migrants may be barred from border areas, while foreigners may be deported.
A law is already in place since 2017 to force civil bodies receiving more than 24 000 Euros per year in foreign funding, to register with the courts. They are labelled “foreign-aided organisations” in all publications by law. It is currently being challenged as a “violation of contract” by the EU.
Prime minister Viktor Orban’s government has targeted the Soros Plan relentlessly, especially since the beginning of the year.
Orban has publicly accused the US billionaire Soros, who funds numerous civil organisations, of wanting flood Europe with Muslims in order to destroy its “Christian and national identity”. He also is the favorite to win a third consecutive term in April 8 elections.
German daily Die Welt denied any such plan by Soros despite mounting evidence of his involvement in the migration crisis.
On May 12, 2016, a leaked report of the International Migration Institute (IMI), an official project of Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), provided an important window to view the working relationships among the IMI refugee activists and their allies inside the Obama administration and the United Nations.
The nine-page report, by top IMI staffers Anna Crowley and Kate Rosin, entitled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review,” was one of many Soros/OSF documents released by DCLeaks.com.
Soros staffers Crowley and Rosin called for “accepting the current crisis as the new normal and moving beyond the need to react”.
Their report also provides revealing details on the Soros/IMI/OSF relationship to Goldman Sachs insider Peter Sutherland, the UN’s top globalist agent in charge of designing and implementing the UN’s chaos-producing migration programs.
“The Columbia Global Policy Initiative (CGPI), which hosts the secretariat for Peter Sutherland, the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative on International Migration, has been able to take advantage of momentum created by the current crisis to shape conversations about rethinking migration governance,” Crowley and Rosin wrote in the leaked report.
The Soros staffers continued: “IMI provided project support for the drafting of The Sutherland Report, which aims to set the stage for institutional reforms to global migration governance, and to break new ground on protections for migrants outside the asylum system.”
In addition, Sutherland and Soros both sit on the Advisory Board of the Global Policy Institute (GPI), a leading think tank promoting open borders and unlimited migration under the guise of “global governance”.
It is worth noting that the Columbia Global Policy Initiative (CGPI), which the Soros report mentions funding and collaborating with, refers to the organisation established at Columbia University that has become a leading force for the radical migration agenda.
The Soros/IMI report noted:
When we made the CGPI grant, even we were somewhat skeptical about the appetite for reform of the institutions that govern elements of migration at the international level, and the pace at which it might proceed. Nonetheless, we recognized the importance of starting this discussion, and the political capital Sutherland could leverage to bring high-level attention to the issue. This gamble has arguably paid off: as the September UN and President Obama’s summits on migrants and refugees have taken shape, Sutherland’s team has effectively drawn on work and thinking it had already done to influence the scope and deliverables of these two meetings.
