Vona: Do we want a global migrant quota?
Jobbik's president says Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is trying to escape the grasp of an EU majority by proposing a global quota for the relocation of migrants. Gábor Vona believes the real question is: "no matter if it's an EU or a global quota but who is for the idea of a quota system and who is against it?"
"Most EU leaders were shocked numb by the migration issue at first, then they boastfully announced the quota system as some kind of miracle weapon. Firstly, the system would open a door which can never be closed later on, only opened wider and wider. Secondly, it is in an utter conflict with a fundamental EU principle, the free movement of persons. Finally, it is unacceptable for the Hungarian society. In other words, it is a horribly bad proposal. Jobbik categorically rejects it, and initiates a referendum if necessary.
The Hungarian government, which managed to improve its popularity ratings by the treatment of the migration issue, did criticize the quota plan but the EU majority still seems to insist on it. Now Viktor Orbán is attempting to escape from their grasp by proposing a global quota plan, but it's just another nonsense. Even if the burden were shared among more countries, the government itself admits that there is an inexhaustible supply of migrants, so the global relocation plan would still result in Hungary being required to receive a huge number of immigrants sooner or later.
So the question is no longer who is for and who is against immigration; this issue has already been decided. The real question is: no matter if it's an EU or a global quota but who is for the idea of a quota system and who is against it? We are against it. What about Fidesz?" wrote Gábor Vona in his Facebook post.
