Hungary’s Orban to EU: “You condemn us because we are not a nation of migrants”


The EU is in the process of deliberations on whether to strip Hungary of "key" EU rights because of that country's policies on immigration. Hungarian leader Viktor Orban delivered a "fiery speech to European lawmakers in Strasbourg," stating that he will not give in to EU "blackmail."

"Hungary is going to be condemned because the Hungarian people have decided that this country is not going to be a country of migrants." Calling the proceedings an "insult" to his nation, Orban called Hungary the "defender of Europe" and spoke of its "different view on Christianity in Europe, the role of nations and national culture."
