Everyone wants to ban someone from coming to America.
The Trump administration wanted to ban Muslims from terror states from coming here while the Biden administration has thus far warned Israelis that they wouldn’t get visa waivers unless they proved they don’t discriminate against terror tourists with U.S. citizenship, and is doing a Hungarian Travel Ban.
The media’s take on a Muslim Travel Ban was that it was the ultimate in bigotry and racism, while the Hungarian Travel Ban is just a sensible security measure to keep all those Hungarian Jihadis who shout “Long Live Goulash” before detonating out of the country.
The United States on Tuesday sharply limited Hungary’s participation in its visa waiver program over security concerns regarding new passports issued between 2011 and 2020.
Do we have a major Hungarian illegal alien problem? Are Hungarians blowing themselves up in our cities?
After coming to power in 2010, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s government implemented a major policy change that granted citizenship to ethnic Hungarians abroad — including in Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine.
David Pressman, the U.S. ambassador in Budapest, told POLITICO in an interview ahead of the announcement, “There are hundreds of thousands of passports that have been issued by the government of Hungary as part of the simplified naturalization program without stringent identity verification mechanisms in place.”
Dave, Dave. Your boss lets people across the border who claim that the weather is too hot. He flew in tens of thousands of Afghans who were vetted by the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Your administration’s idea of stringent identity verification is a ballot slip pre-filled by a ballot harvester with Biden’s name already on it for 2024.
I’m sure Hungary’s identity verification isn’t up to snuff, but what does Afghanistan’s look like? Your administration is pushing for the Afghan Adjustment Act that would legalize tens of thousands of Afghan migrants before they’ve gone through the legal process.
Many Western countries have spoken out about deteriorating democratic standards in Hungary, as well as policies and rhetoric they say undermine the rights of LGBTQ+ people there.
What’s the national security angle on transgender rights exactly?
I’m not a big fan of Hungary’s self-promotion in conservative circles by paid influencers, but this is obviously political retaliation by an administration that has filled the country with unvetted illegal migrants.
And the media denounced the Muslim Travel Ban, but is fine with the Hungarian Travel Ban.
