The future of our continent is at stake during the May elections

Press Release by Kinga Gál

“Instead of trying to manage situations that are imposed by human traffickers, in which they are deciding who can enter Europe and who cannot, Europe should protect its external borders on both land and sea. The stakes are high in the European Parliament elections in May, presenting voters with a choice between political forces that support illegal migration and those that aim to prevent it,” stressed Fidesz MEP Kinga Gál in her speech during the plenary session.

According to forecasts, the population of Africa will double by 2050, and this will obviously lead to further waves of migration. The problem will last for decades and it will not be solved by mandatory migrant distribution or migrant visas. Europe must eliminate ambiguous signals that attract young Africans to move to Europe in pursuit of a better life. This is why the UN Global Compact for Migration poses a threat to Europe and has become unacceptable for us. “We should provide assistance to those in trouble where they are in order to strengthen the population-retaining power of third countries,” the MEP added.

It is clear that today’s EU population is the most affected by the migration crisis. This year’s European Parliament elections will also decide the winner in the competition between the policy represented by the Fidesz government, which opposes illegal migration, and the immigration policy that invites illegal migrants and ignores national sovereignty. In the May elections, it is vital that people make good decisions and – for the sake of the continent’s future – support parties that stand up against illegal immigration.
