Hungary and Poland stand firm against EU’s immigration plans
At the beginning of this month, 58 European and African countries gathered in Marrakech, Morocco 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 Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, 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 in 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.
