Migration and Brussels’ “pro-migration policy” continue to be a threat to member states, despite the growing number of states, heads of government and citizens voicing objections to them, the ruling Fidesz party’s parliamentary spokesman told a press conference on Sunday. Another pro-government lawmaker was accusing the European Parliament of serving George Soros’s interests.
Janos Halasz commented on a statement released by Dunja Mijatovic, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, on Thursday, saying that EU states should “put the human rights of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, as well as the principle of responsibility sharing, at the centre of their migration and asylum policies”.
Mijatovic said that reception spots for migrants within or outside the EU should operate with “a clear procedure … to ensure durable solutions, including resettlement, for those in need of protection, as well as safe returns for those who do not, to avoid overcrowding and disembarked persons being left in a situation of prolonged uncertainty”.
Halasz said EU organisations “under the influence of George Soros” kept forcing pro-migration policies. The statement shows clearly that Mijatovic “dances to Soros’s tune as did her predecessor,” he said. “Soros really seems to have his people everywhere … who insist on flooding Europe with migrants, the European public opinion notwithstanding,” he added.
Hungary’s ruling parties believe that “the Soros network is still pulling the strings in the European Parliament,” the parliamentary spokesman of the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance said on Saturday.
Speaking at a press conference, Istvan Hollik noted that the EP on Thursday adopted a non-legislative resolution saying that NGOs offering humanitarian assistance to migrants should not be punished for their actions by member states. Hollik said this “clearly shows that George Soros’s network is pulling the strings in the EP”.
He said the resolution was backed by “Soros’s allies in Brussels” and welcomed in a joint letter by sixty MEPs immediately after its adoption. Among the letter’s signatories were “the author of the Soros report attacking Hungary”, Green MEP Judith Sargentini, the Democratic Coalition’s Peter Niedermueller and Parbeszed’s Benedek Javor, he added.
Hollik said the resolution was almost identical to the goals of “the Soros network’s international pro-migrant campaign”, Welcoming Europe. He said the resolution sought to legalise migration and make it a fundamental right and prevent member states from being able to penalise organisations supporting it.
The politician said this was how the EP was looking to “launder the pro-migration Soros network”.
Given that illegal migration is a crime, so is organising and supporting it, Hollik said. He said this was why the Hungarian parliament had passed the “Stop Soros” package of laws. Hungary will stand by that legislation even if Soros and his allies in Brussels “launch another attack” against it, he added.
