“Brussels wants to legalise and boost immigration”, Hungary says


According to the Hungarian government’s response to the European Commission, Brussels intends to legalise and boost immigration.

The document released on Sunday is a detailed response to the commission’s Feb. 28 statement criticising Hungary’s communications regarding European Union policy on migration.

The eight-page rebuttal presents the EU plans and decisions that the government says would increase migration into Europe.

In connection with the document, Csaba Domotor, the Hungarian state secretary of the cabinet office, said in a statement that various public statements and voting records showed the intentions of the EU.

“The plans reflect a clear intention: to legalise immigration rather than stop it”, he said. “This intention is well served by the introduction of quotas, migrant bank cards and migrant visas”, he said.
