Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe’s borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis.
“This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” Mr Orban said.

More than 4-in-9 Voters Support Travel Ban for Muslim-Majority Countries
More than four-in-nine U.S. voters say they support President Trump’s travel ban for a list of Muslim-majority countries that are known to produce and export terrorism.
Despite constant establishment media criticism, Trump’s travel ban is favored by a total of 45 percent of likely voters, according to the latest Harvard/Harris Poll.
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Trump’s travel ban is constitutional. The travel ban seeks to halt all immigration from the following nations until “extreme vetting” procedures can be properly implemented:
- North Korea
Six of the eight countries included in Trump’s travel ban have either sponsored Islamic terrorism in the past or have major issues with terrorism.
The Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that nearly half of American men support the travel ban, while four-in-ten female voters support the ban. A majority of white Americans, Republican voters, conservatives, and Trump supporters support the travel ban as well.
Trump’s travel ban is so popular and mainstream among Trump supporters and conservatives that more than seven-in-ten support the immigration moratorium on the eight foreign countries.
As Breitbart News has reported, the U.S. has imported more than 131,000 foreign nationals from the terrorist-prone countries included in the travel ban between 2014 and 2016. This is a foreign population that is nearly four times the size of Beverly Hills, California.
Every year, more than 1.5 million illegal and legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S., with the current foreign-born population booming to an unprecedented high of roughly 44.5 million foreign nationals. As Breitbart News exposed, since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, there have been at least 580 individuals convicted of terrorism with 380 of those individuals being foreign-born.
“This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros.”
Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business, claiming his foundations help “uphold European values”, while Mr Oban’s actions in strengthening the Hungarian border and stopping a huge migrant influx “undermine those values.”
“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”
Last month, Mr Orban accused pro-immigration non-governmental organisations (NGOs) of “drawing a living from the immigration crisis,” singling out those funded by Mr Soros.
George Soros is a firm backer of transnational bodies such as the European Union, and his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-migration activists. He is well-known for his support for “progressive” causes such as the Centre for American Progress, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
The OSF website explains: “We believe that migration and asylum policy should be grounded in economic and demographic realities, not driven by temporary political considerations or popular misconceptions.
“In Europe, many of our civil society partners are raising their voices demanding a common European approach in line with international human rights commitments.”
Mr Orban said in an interview last month that immigration and multiculturalism are endangering Europe’s “Christian roots” and creating “parallel societies”.
Europeans, he said, should “stick to our Christian values” and “Europe can be saved,” but only if they “take seriously the traditions, the Christian roots and all the values that are the basis of the civilisation of Europe.”
