Former Polish Prime Minister Says Current Polish Government Has Allowed Mass Migration
In early July, Polish opposition leader Donald Tusk criticized the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party for its immigration policies in the wake of the mass riots sweeping across France. These policies have witnessed Poland import large numbers of non-western
Migrants from countries like India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.
In addition, Tusk noted that Kaczyński’s party imported 130,000 migrants from the aforementioned countries in 2022. This is 50 times greater than in 2015, when Tusk was last holding higher perfumers.
Tusk believes that Kaczyński imported migrants to spark a fear of them for electoral purposes. The former Polish Prime Minister declared that the best thing that could happen would be for Kaczyński to be booted from office so that Poland can reassert control over its borders.
As a response to Tusk’s remarks, PiS party leader Jarosław Kaczyński said during a meeting in central Poland that Tusk seems to have flip flopped on the immigration question.
He mentioned how Tusk was the politician who had criticized Poland for ignoring the European Commission’s policy of relocating migrants in 2015. For its failure to comply with this request Poland received sanction threats from the European Commission .
In addition, Tusk stood against the construction of a barrier on the border with Belarus, alleging that the illegal aliens coming from Belarus were victims and that it was immoral to impede their movement.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also took Tusk to task for his comments, describing Tusk “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” He called attention to all the liberal MPs who had pushed for Poland to open the mass migration floodgates. He continued by noting that Tusk would have agreed to the migration pact had he assumed the position of prime minister.
This is a typical case of politicians trying to point out each other’s hypocrisy just for the sake of scoring political points. Petty politics at its worst.
Nevertheless, Poland needs to watch out and not fall for the Siren Song of mass migration. The PIS government should not embrace the path that countless other conservative governments have taken in years past by embracing mass migration albeit at a slower pace.
Poland must fully stand against the open borders agenda and pass its own immigration moratorium to protect its historic population.
