The European Parliament’s holding another vote on “migrant visas” is “unacceptable”, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office said on Wednesday, and called the procedure “anti-democratic”.
Gergely Gulyas insisted that the proposal, which has been once rejected, would be put to vote “without any real changes” and added that its proponents would “keep on trying until they get the right answer”. Gulyas warned that large masses could come into Europe by way of the proposed travel documents, while “Europe and other countries make huge efforts to protect the external borders”.
On another subject, Gulyas said he did “not receive daily reports” concerning the whereabouts of former Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski. Gruevski is not ensured personal protection but “services due to refugees under the law”. He added that Gruevski, holding refugee status, has a right to free movement within the European Union. He insisted that Hungary had “not violated the sovereignty of any country” and “had no role” in Gruevski’s flight from his country.
Answering a question about Russian arms dealers Hungary extradited, Gulyas said that the question was aimed to “warm up a case settled weeks ago”. He said it was the justice minister’s decision to extradite them to Russia as they were Russian nationals after a court ruled that they could be extradited either to Russia or the United States. The move was in full compliance with international agreements, Gulyas added.
Fidesz slams Brussels for further ‘pro-migrant’ proposals
European Union decision-makers “are going full steam ahead with their pro-migration plans”, Janos Halasz, parliamentary spokesman for ruling Fidesz, told a press conference on Wednesday.
“Not only do they want to snatch border control from member states, they now seek to make decisions on asylum procedures, too,” Halasz said Brussels, referring to recent proposals made by the European Parliament’s civil liberties, citizenship and home affairs committee (LIBE), which he called “extremely pro-immigration”.
Concerning details, Halasz said that providing entrants with a “migrant visa” would be equal to providing illegal migrants with a travel document outside the EU, without any controls, ensuring them free entry. Meanwhile, setting up an European migration agency would mean that Brussels “could easily override” a member state’s decision concerning whom to allow to enter.
“Every move by the current leadership in Brussels is aimed at letting even more migrants into Europe and grabbing even more power for themselves,” Halasz said. Referring to billionaire George Soros, he said this narrative had panned out all according to “Soros’s plan”. Halasz warned that the “import of migrants to Europe will become automatic” unless the EU’s current decision-makers are voted out at the upcoming EP elections.
