FIDESZ MEP DECRIES 'LEFTIST PROPOSAL' TO SET UP LEGAL MIGRATION ROUTES

 

Autumn in Brussels has started with a decidedly pro-migration bent, Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi said, citing a proposal supported by left-wingers in the European Parliament to establish legal migration corridors into the European Union. Hidvéghi said on Facebook that the aim of their proposal was to make up for falling birth numbers and a dwindling workforce in parts of the bloc. “Only a few right-wing MEPs remained rational,” he said, noting unemployment of around 15% in Spain and Greece. “This might not be the right time to flood the continent with thousands of immigrants,” he added. “The leftists want to turn Europe into an immigration continent,” the Fidesz MEP said. Meanwhile, Hungary’s ruling party “believes solely in Hungarian families and the work of Hungarian workers”. “While Fidesz-KDNP holds power in Hungary, this will remain the case” he added.
