Hungary official: Obama wants Muslims in Europe

The chief of staff for Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says President Barack Obama and the United States are in favor of illegal migration “in the interests of having as many Muslims as possible in Europe.”

Janos Lazar said Thursday that Hungarian-born American financier George Soros was a standard-bearer for Obama’s immigration policies for Europe and that “certain American groups” want Europe to be “diluted … so Europe and America can cooperate without restraint.”

Lazar called Soros a patron of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, the current U.S. presidential candidate. He said Soros was a Democratic Party supporter who was “ready to step up” against Orban.

Obama and the Clintons have criticized Orban for his perceived authoritarianism and efforts to crack down on civic groups like those advocating for Roma or gay rights. Orban considers some of those groups “paid foreign activists.”
