Jobbik: Immigration, terrorism “go hand in hand”
Budapest, November 15 (MTI) – The deadly attacks in Paris have proven that immigration and terrorism “go hand in hand” as some of the perpetrators had arrived in France as migrants through the Balkan, the spokesman of radical nationalist Jobbik said on Sunday.
Not all immigrants are terrorists but the latter can take advantage of massive migration and migrants can easily be radicalised, Adam Mirkoczki told MTI.
The immigration policies of Brussels and Berlin have proved to be a fiasco and even in Hungary signature drives have become “a thing of the past”, he said, referring to ruling Fidesz’s early November initiative to collect signatures against the EU’s planned mandatory migrant quotas.
Mirkoczki reiterated his party’s proposal for holding a binding referendum against immigration, the quota system and expulsions to Hungary.
As the constitutional amendment allowing for such a referendum would require a two-thirds majority in parliament, Jobbik calls on Fidesz lawmakers to lay aside party politics and support its proposal.
A referendum would offer an example for Europe and encourage other countries to follow suit, exerting pressure on Berlin and Brussels to change its policies, Mirkoczki said.
