Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban launched his European elections campaign Sunday calling for voters to defend “Christian” nations against immigration, which he said led to the “virus of terrorism”.
He also announced a seven-point package of tax breaks and subsidies to encourage families to raise more children, a move he called “Hungary’s answer” to its falling population instead of increasing immigration.
May’s elections for the European Parliament were a “historic crossroads” for Europe, said Orban, in this year’s state of the nation speech in Budapest before an invited audience.
He framed the vote as a choice between the “new internationalism” of pro-migration Brussels bureaucrats under the sway of “money men” such as liberal US billionaire George Soros and sovereign nation states defending tradition and Christianity.

Those who “decide for immigration and migrants for whatever reason in reality are creating mixed-race nations”, he said.
Referring several times to Hungary’s abandoning of communism in 1989, he said Hungarians were again confronted with…
