Hungarian officials slammed the European Parliament after it voted to move forward with plans to sanction Hungary over domestic policies to secure its borders, prevent illegal migration, and attack the tentacles of the 'George Soros network.'
"Hungary and the Hungarian people have been convicted because we have proven that migration is not needed and that it can be stopped," Szijjártó said. "Only we can decide with whom we want to live, here in our country."
"The intention to form a coalition following the May elections has without a doubt been clearly revealed, as a result of which the liberals, the social democrats and the group of European People’s Party MEPs who have just condemned Hungary will be forming a coalition aimed at ensuring that the EU continues to practice pro-immigration politics after May and has the opportunity to flood the continent with immigrants," he asserted, referencing critical European Parliament elections in May 2019.
Viktor Orbán, who recently kicked off his third consecutive as prime minister after a landslide election win, blasted Parliament for its brazen attempt to subvert the will of the Hungarian people – a theme playing out similarly across the West as internationalists work to overturn the election of Donald Trump, thwart the agenda of Italy's Matteo Salvini, and ignore Brits' demands to Brexit.
"A few months ago . . . there was an election in Hungary. The Hungarian people decided what should happen, and during the election campaign we discussed all of the issues," Orbán said. "The people decided on these issues. And now the European Parliament is taking upon itself, the task of overruling the decision made by the people of Hungary and forcing the Hungarian government to implement what they are attempting to impose on us in place of the people's decision."
"We need a new European Commission that is committed to the defense of Europe's borders," Orbán continued. "We need a Commission after the European elections that does not punish those countries — like Hungary — that protect their borders."
