The Sargentini report is an act of political blackmail, and its goal is to strip Hungary of its sovereignty and to pressure it to change its migration policy, Hungary’s state secretary for EU affairs Judit Varga told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap.
According to Varga, the EU institutions want to punish Hungary because they don’ want to turn Hungary into a country of immigrants. She stressed that the EU has violated its own rules to make sure the report is accepted.
Varga said that the European Commission wants to force its pro-immigration policies upon the member states and to achieve their goals, they want to take away the right for border control. According to the state secretary, border protection is national competence and Hungary can guard its border better than the Frontex.
