The Hungarian government is warning EU member nations of Brussels’s intent to shove open borders down their throats.
Dr. Zoltán Kovács, the State Secretary for International Communications and Relations, expressed his concern about the EU’s latest move to undermine national sovereignty within its bloc.
Kovács specifically singed out the plans to reform and expand the EU Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex)’s role as an attempt to infringe on the sovereignty of member-states” by taking border control out of national governments’ hands and transferring it to Frontex instead.
He backed up his claims about the Brussels elite’s goals by quoting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the bloc’s most powerful open borders proponent:
“[President of the European Commission] Jean-Claude Juncker has already put forward a proposal that states that Frontex must be reinforced. However, this also means – and this is what I support, at least – that member-states on the external border of the EU must give up their national competencies in order to give Frontex truly comprehensive competencies.”
Kovács continued his warnings:
“Beware when a senior figure says that countries “with external EU borders” should “surrender their national competences”. That should set off warning bells throughout the EU.”
Interestingly, Kovács highlighted how EU leaders focus on border management and never on strengthening or defending borders. In Kovács’s view, border management is a euphemism for allowing mass migration into the EU.
At the same time, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Stíjjártó asserted that Brussels’s growing opposition to pro-sovereignty, anti-mass migration governments in Europe is due to their unwillingness to become “migrant hosts”. Stíjjártó addressed this point a press conference with Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.
The Hungarian Foreign Minister also noted that the EU was enraged when Hungary and Poland were the first European countries to reject the United Nations Global Compact for Migration.
Under Viktor Orbán’s leadership, Hungary has been a bastion of rationality in the EU. Its skepticism of open borders is warranted given the disturbing social effects it has had in countries like France and the United Kingdom.
Countries have every right to pursue whatever immigration policies they see fit. However, when supranational entities like the EU step in and impose one-size-fits all policies on them, that’s where a line has to be drawn.
Simply put, a multinational open borders experiment is a disaster waiting to happen.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
