While our government seems to have few people who seem to care about the machinations of George Soros to interfere in our government, his home nation of Hungary just showed that they care a lot about the man they view as a “public enemy.”
They’ve proposed tough new anti-immigration laws and given them an appropriate name
Hungarian-born US billionaire Soros has been called “a public enemy” by Prime Minister Viktor Orban who accuses the 87-year-old of orchestrating migration into Europe since the refugee crisis began in 2015.
Hungary erected fences on its southern borders in 2015 and last year began holding all adult asylum-seekers in guarded border camps.
The latest three laws — called the “Stop Soros law package” — aim to shut remaining loopholes that allow “illegal immigration” to persist, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said in a radio interview.
The proposed measures include entry bans on foreigners and restraining orders stopping Hungarians approaching the border areas if they are deemed to be “supporting” or “organising” illegal immigration, according to the draft legislation published on the government website.
And, in a move directly aimed at Soro-backed NGOs that help to promote illegal immigration, they also levied a 25% tax against any foreign funding behind such organizations. The tax would then go to help border defense.
Kovacs accused Soros of using “human rights organization” for political purposes to promote migration.
The laws could also theoretically ban Soros, who has citizenship in both Hungary and the United States.
From Daily Mail:
Furthermore third-country nationals could also be subject to a restraining order anywhere within the country.
Exact details are not clear because the bills will only be published and submitted for public debate on Thursday. But pro-government media reported that they could result in a ban on Soros – who has U.S. and Hungarian citizenship – from entering the country.
The Soros-funded Open Society Foundations (OSF) claims that its work in Hungary is solely benevolent and that it is just working to establish fairer, more accountable societies.
Yes, just like that’s all they’re doing here in the United States, right?
The European Commission has said they will sue Hungary for not taking in their EU quota of migrants. The EU also intends to go after the Czech Republic and Poland who also have balked at being forced to take in migrants.
