Poland Agrees to Take Migrants – But Not from Africa or the Middle East

After months of threats from the European Union, Poland has finally said that it will take in migrants…But only those from Europe and none from Africa or the Middle East!

Under the 2015 Dublin Agreement, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic agreed to take in a certain number of migrants who have been arriving with the “Migrant Crisis.” But have cited reasons of failed Security Checks on the migrants as the reason for refusing them entry. They say that the migrants who have applied have failed to pass basic vetting and have been supplying false information, and therefore, they will not take them.

The EU responded with legal threats and fines of up to 250,000 Euros per refused migrant. Witold Waszczykowski, the Polish Foreign Minister has now stated that they will gladly take migrants from its “poor and conflict-stricken European neighbors” but not “from North Africa and the Middle East.”

This echoes Hungarian President, Viktor Orban’s words earlier this year when he said that Hungary would welcome “true refugees” meaning “Germans, Dutch, French and Italians, terrified politicians and journalists who here in Hungary want to find the Europe they have lost in their homelands.” 

Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski has said his country is welcoming migrants from its poor and conflict-stricken European neighbours, but will resist the European Union’s efforts to impose a compulsory quota of migrants from North Africa and the Middle East.

“Poland is open for migration. And last year, for instance, we issued 1,267,000 visas for Ukrainians. Half of these visas were work permits,” Waszczykowski told Russian media in a bruising interview reproduced by the Daily Express.

“We are also open for migration not only from Ukraine but also from Belarus and other countries, [but] we do not want to participate in the mandatory process of relocation of migrants coming from the Middle East and Africa.

“We do not want to implement the decision of the European Union taken in September of 2015.”

Waszczykowski’s words echo those of the President of the Czech Republic — which is also resisting the EU’s attempts to impose migrant quotas — in February 2017.

Miloš Zeman said he had “nothing against immigrants who come here to work and who have similar language and similar culture like ours”, citing the Ukrainian community and even the Vietnamese community as having the right attitude towards their host nation.

“[But] I do not want immigrants who come from other cultures who come for social benefits, not because of work,” he continued, adding: “Muslims should remain in the countries where they live [and] they should work in them, and they should not go to Europe, where they do not want to work.”

Hungarian premier Viktor Orbán — the de facto leader of the group of Central European states resisting what the EU’s attempts to execute the Soros Plan to distribute migrants throughout the continent — has gone even further, wryly suggesting that he will open his country’s doors to “true refugees” fleeing multicultural Western Europe.

“Germans, Dutch, French and Italians, terrified politicians and journalists who here in Hungary want to find the Europe they have lost in their homelands,” he said.
