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.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
