EU budget draft ‘pro-migration’, says ruling Fidesz party
The European Union’s budget as drafted by the European Commission is a “pro-migration” proposal, Balázs Hidvéghi, communications director of ruling Fidesz, told a press conference on Friday.
Hidvéghi criticised the budget draft for cutting funds “in a number of important areas” while adding that “migration and Brussels bureaucracy” will benefit from “unchanged support”.
The proposed budget is “harmful and dangerous” and is in conflict with Hungary’s interests, he said. He added that the budget’s allocation of a total of 35 billion euros for migration and border management reflects the “Soros plan”. He also added that “they want to spend further billions of euros in cohesion and welfare funding on the integration of migrants already in the EU”.
As we wrote on Thursday, the European Union‘s draft budget for the 2021-2027 period is unacceptable because it is taking away resources from poorer states to transfer them to richer ones, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office.
Also we wrote before, opposition Jobbik says the Orbán government has failed to change Hungary’s economic dependence on EU funding and if the financing is cut off due to an Article 7 procedure or otherwise reduced, then the country would fall into recession. Read more HERE.
