In an interview with the Register, Péter Szijjártó explains why he believes his governments EU-opposed immigration policy is necessary to preserve Hungarys and Europes Christian heritage.
In recent years, Hungary has been almost alone in Europe in fighting to retain its Christian heritage and to preserve its Christian identity in the face of a European Union that has tried to do the opposite.
And it has done so largely through what some see as a hardline immigration policy, but which the countrys government insists is a sensible policy of controlled immigration (it opposes illegal and irregular immigration and favors tight control of its outer borders).
This week, that policy (along with others) led to a clash with the European Parliament, which is looking at taking unprecedented disciplinary action against the country for allegedly breaching the EUs core values. If approved, punitive measures could include suspension of Hungarys voting rights, although this is considered unlikely.
Hungarys foreign minister, Péter Szijjártó, has called the move petty revenge of politicians who favor an open-borders policy across Europe.

Yeah the bitching is getting old
“Yeah the bitching is getting old”
I dont care how you feel.
Is what I said a lie? No?
Well ok then.
Well that’s up to them to be slaves again to some foreign capital.
At least they tried breaking free in 1956. Now they are content to take their coins and whine about getting slapped with a rolled-up newspaper. Too bad.
I was agreeing with you but thanks for coming out of the closet as a doche bag
Hungary and Poland. The rest of Europe is a mission field.

Long live Hungary.
all is forgiven sorry for jumping on case - been a crappy day - once again sorry
Which European country will be the first to remove the cross from their flag to appease the muslims?

This one may just be damage along the way. Not to minimize that, of course.
Guess it’s gonna play how how it’s gonna play out.
