Justice Minister: Hungary Shows Effective Solution to Migration Crisis

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.04.14.

Hungary is showing an effective solution to the migration crisis for the whole of Europe, Justice Minister Judit Varga said in a post on Tuesday, in reaction to a recent proposal by the European Parliament’s LIBE Committee.

The minister said on Facebook that the EP’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs has put forward a proposal which she said “would not only legalise migration but would respond to Europe’s shortage of labour with a massive influx of immigrants”.

“When we had hoped that the left would finally hear the voice of the people, the latest LIBE report called for a single EU immigration code, which would give a green light to migration flows towards Europe, thus deluging the European labour market with an unskilled, cheap workforce,” Varga said.

She said it is “completely contrary to the interests of the people of Europe”.

The minister said that Hungary has shown to Europe an effective programme dubbed Hungary Helps as a solution to the migration crisis, noting that just recently it had helped 200 Syrian refugee families return to their homes.

“As long as bureaucrats in Brussels write reports, initiate proceedings and speak harshly to other countries through the global liberal media, however, the Hungary Helps Program is setting an example and getting real help where it is really needed,” said Varga.

“While the ‘Brussels bureaucracy’ and their friends in the Hungarian left-wing opposition parties are puffing up loud slogans and organising pseudo-solidarity actions in the media, the Hungarian government is acting and offers a humane solution to the migration crisis,” she said.
