Hungary's leader has declared that "liberalism is over" in the country while announcing a new era of "Christian democracy."

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán spoke during a panel discussion at the National Conservatism conference in Rome on Tuesday where he vowed an end to immigration into Hungary.

During the conference, which was organized by the Edmund Burke Foundation, Orbán cited countries' open border policies during the migrant crisis as one of the catastrophic failings of other liberal European nations.

The Hungarian premier also highlighted a second major failure of liberal western governments in the recent past: their mishandling of the 2008 global financial crisis.

The prime minister also noted stark differences between Hungary’s migration policy compared to policies that Western European countries have embraced.

Immigration issues in Europe's liberal nations began back in 2015 “when they failed to protect their citizens and their countries’ borders,” Orbán said.

Orbán pointed to declining percentages of Christians among Europe's populations as a growing concern.

PM Orbán told the conference that Europe’s growing number of Muslim immigrants has coincided with its rapidly declining Christian population, according to About Hungary.

“According to the liberals, this is fine, because they don’t like Christian society,” Orbán said.

The prime minister went on to note that the suicidal choice was theirs to make.

Forcing Central Europeans to follow in their footsteps, however, is completely unacceptable, he added.

“The result will be a new kind of society, one that’s preferred by Europe’s liberals because they believe that a society that is religiously and ethnically mixed will bring about a better life,” Orbán noted.

“I don’t want to tell Europe what sort of social composition she should have, but then she must not tell Hungary how to approach the question,” the Hungarian Prime Minister added.

During his time in Rome, Orbán met with Matteo Salvini, Italy’s former Interior Minister, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the national populist Brothers of Italy party, as well as Italy’s former prime minister and the leader of Forza Italia, Silvio Berlusconi.

Last year, the European Commission took the Hungarian government to the Court of Justice of the European Union over its "Stop Soros" laws that prevent illegal immigration.

The law, which references globalist billionaire George Soros, was passed in 2018, making it a crime to help illegal immigrants and asylum seekers settle in Hungary.

Pro-immigration activists who help illegal immigrants face up to a year in jail under the laws.

The European Commission, which is an unelected body that serves as the EU’s primary source of EU-level law, began infringement procedures against Hungary in August.
