Hungary and Poland stand firm against EU’s immigration plans

At the beginning of this month, 58 European and African countries gathered in Morocco in Marrakech to discuss issues such as migration and development. The EU plans to support immigration to Europe, not to stop it.

    A political statement was issued after the event, full of information that provides a clear indication of the imminent plans to bring millions of Africans to Europe.

    The most important feature of the statement is that EU officials are as determined as ever to enable a massive flow of “legal” migration. Only Hungary stood up for the Europeans and refused to sign it, while Belgium, the Netherlands and other nations have agreed.

    Instead of defending Europe against the unwanted influx of people from outside the continent, mainstream politicians have a very different view. The event was reported as a quest for adapted and coordinated answers to “manage” migration flows.

    Long negotiations took place in which civil society and international organisations such as the IOM, the UN organization for migration, and the special envoy of the UN Secretary-General, Louise Arbor, were involved.

    From the statement:

    The action plan provides for concrete commitments “to reinforce the positive impact of legal migration on development” by exchanging good practices that enable countries to know the profiles of their diasporas, reduce the cost of international money transfers and supporting entrepreneurship and productive investment by young people from the African diaspora.

    Only the Hungarian government refused to sign this statement, because it rightly argued that the consequence of such an agreement would be a new wave of immigrants, both through the old avenues, but also through newly opened avenues.

    It was suggested that a distinction be made between migrants with “legal status” and “illegal immigrants”, but the Hungarians questioned the move saying it did not address the flood of Africans to the EU.

    The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, Péter Szijjártó also quoted the words of the European Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos who very openly articulated the background to this statement: “Migration must be supported because the population grows in Africa and shrinks from Europe.”

    Hungary’s ruling Fidesz says it will not yield to any form of pressure and will implement Hungarians’ wish that the country should be kept free of mass migration, a party spokesman said on Tuesday.

    A “Soros report” condemning Hungary is being forced through in Brussels and further “lies are being spread about us” to force the government to accept mass migration without any resistance, Balázs Hidvéghi said.

    Amendments to a damning report about Hungary proposed by Dutch green-liberal MEP Judith Sargentini, will be submitted on Tuesday.

    US financier George Soros has urged his surrogates in Brussels to attack Hungary with further lies, proposing the imposition of sanctions on it, Hidvéghi added. “The ‘Soros report’ currently in preparation is part of this attempt to pressurise Hungary; the EP LIBE committee will vote on it next month and the EP plenary in the autumn,” he said.

    Asked about the planned move of the Open Society Foundation’s Budapest office to Berlin, he said “they are fleeing from transparency” because they do not want Hungarians to know what money is being used to finance it. However, its exit will be only a “facade”. The foundation will not stop its operation in Hungary, and will continue to exercise pressure to promote migration, he explained to MTI, the Hungarian news agency.

    Hungarian Prime Minister said earlier the EU risks being “overrun” by mass immigration and said his government had “prevented the Islamic world from flooding us”. Orban singled out immigration from Africa as potentially leading to “our worst nightmares coming true”.

    His Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki also strongly opposed the EU’s forced migrant quota system, describing it as an assault on national sovereignty. The EU Commission wants to tie funding on which poorer eastern countries rely, to respect for their dictates.

    Reuters reported that Hungary refused any proposal that would provide the potential for blackmail of anyone with regard to the payment of EU funds based on the treaties.

    Both leaders, meeting in Warsaw, said people in Africa the Middle East should be helped in their own countries as it would be a more effective long-term solution to the migrant crisis.
