Christian Democrats: Brussels has chosen migrants over protecting Europe
Instead of working to protect Europe, Brussels has settled on relocating migrants to the continent, a lawmaker of the co-ruling Christian Democrats (KDNP) said on Friday.
Speaking at a press conference, István Hollik called the draft reforms to the Dublin refugee system recently approved by the European Parliament’s civil liberties LIBE committee “unacceptable”, adding that it contained a number of “outrageous” clauses.
Among the clauses he said the ruling Fidesz-KDNP alliance disagrees with, Hollik named the ones proposing that the European Union’s rules for refugee family reunification should apply collateral kin as well, and that
migrants of up to groups of 30 should be allowed to submit asylum applications.
Fidesz-KDNP also disagrees with the proposal that would assign the responsibility of migrant relocation to a permanent relocation council, Hollik added. Such a body would be tasked with overseeing the redistribution of migrants among member states, enforcing the rules of the quota system and keeping track of which countries are behind on implementing the mandatory quota scheme, he said.
Hollik said the entire reform proposal had “the Soros plan and the influence of Soros organisations on Brussels written all over it”.
Hollik stressed the importance of voter participation in the Hungarian government’s “national consultation” public survey on the so-called Soros plan.
