Hungary is clearly opposed to the reference in the text of the EU-Turkey agreement on migration, according to which migrants should be transported from Turkey directly to Europe, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said.

EU leaders have decided that the routes of people smugglers must be closed, which means that order must also be restored at the borders, Orban told journalists in Brussels on Tuesday morning after the EU-Turkey summit on easing the worst migration crisis in Europe since WWII, according to hungarytoday.hu.

EU and Turkey have released a statement following their meeting in Brussels on Monday, in which they said that all migrants arriving in Greece from Turkey would be sent back. In return, a Syrian in Turkey would be resettled in the EU for for each Syrian sent back.

On Monday, a Hungarian government spokesman told Reuters that Orban  “has vetoed the plan which would resettle migrants and asylum-seekers directly from Turkey to Europe."

Presumably if she had no children, she doesnt care what happens to the children and grandchildren of other people when this continent is overrun by people who have been taught to hate native Europeans and be prepared to kill us if and when they get the order

Satan's daughter!! No she is not Satan''s daughter. She is only one small female fuhrer that never gave birth to a child. Her brain activity is influenced by hormonal disorders. Besides she does not have the knowledge and the appropriate advisory.. So far responding to lobbyism from large financial groups helped he political career and she did only this. Now facing the need for real human strength and leadership abilities she is exposing her shortcomings.

Satan's daughter started all this and the whole situation is now totally out of control. Pandora's box has well and truly been opened and no-one can shut it now. She has ruined Europe forever.

This is a good article about the proposed 6 billion euros deal, that Fuh rer Shmerkel has hatched up with Sultan Erdogan, which is to be foisted upon all the EU countries. Hopefully it will not pass on March 17.
