Gulyás: European Left Still Forcing Migrant Resettlement
Instead of advocating the protection of European borders and citizens, the continent’s left-wing politicians are still bent on forcing the redistribution of migrants across the bloc without an upper limit, the deputy group leader of ruling Fidesz said.

At Monday’s session of the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee (LIBE), leftwing and liberal MEPs, who were in a majority, made it clear that the migrant redistribution scheme still enjoys majority support in the EP, Gergely Gulyás said.

Gulyás, however, welcomed recent remarks on the subject by EP President Martin Schulz, who said there was a need for dialogue with leaders who, like Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, reject the EU’s migration policies.

“We welcome this dialogue. But we would also like the Socialist EP president to put constraints on those within his parliamentary group who represent political extremism and now seem to make up the majority,” he said.
