Hungary Refuses to Take in More Migrants: 'We Deport Them With Pleasure'
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán declares: 'We reject migrant quotas' from the EU
Hungary has declared that it will no longer meet the "migrant quotas" dictated by the European Union, saying the country is instead deporting refugees "with pleasure."
While delivering a powerful speech before the national-conservative Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) party's annual event in Rome, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced his country is rejecting the EU’s migrant redistribution quotas.
Hungary's populist leader Orbán says his government is refusing to take in more refugees but would “accept deportation quotas with pleasure.”
Along with former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s League party, the Brothers of Italy will likely be a key player in the next Italian populist governing coalition, once Italy holds elections.
Orbán implored Italy’s leadership throughout his speech, praising policies designed to protect citizens and close the country's borders.

During his speech, Orbán acknowledged that Italy’s new leftist coalition government appears to be realigning itself with globalists in Brussels.
Orbán also said, however, that Hungary would be there to fully support Italy if or when it removes its anti-Italian and anti-European leadership.
“Hungary is ready to help Italy in whatever way we can, but there are areas where we cannot help,” Orbán said.
“We cannot help with the transport and settlement of any migrants in Hungary. That is impossible.”
“But once you decide it, we can help you defend your borders, and if you are determined to send home the migrants who are already here, we can help you with that, too.”
“Mandatory settlement quotas, we cannot accept, but deportation quotas with pleasure,” Orbán declared.

“So if PM Conte were to ask the Hungarians to send home a couple of thousand migrants from Italy back to where they came from, then Hungary will be ready and help fulfill such obligations,” the Hungarian PM continued.
Orbán also revealed the measures his government is taking to support Hungarian families but asserted that there are still too few children being born.
“If we don’t do something to counter the negative demographic trend, it will never change,” Orbán added.
He then asserted that he would never support globalist policies which seek to replace the lack of Hungarian-born children with migrants.
Hungary's leader concluded his speech with this sobering statement: “We are in the minority in the European political elite, but in the majority among nations and people.
"Our opposition is big, rich, strong and well organized, thus we must fight an unjustly difficult battle for what is right.”
