Hard to believe but George Soros now saying the same thing as PM Viktor Orbán on the quota system – the mandatory refugee quotas don't work

Monday, November 9, 2015

The mandatory quota system won't solve Europe's refugee crisis; the settlement of refugees must be based on voluntary quotas said George Soros in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Soros complained that the Orbán government constantly attacking him and his foundation for supporting immigration into Europe, but the organization stands its ground.

Soros called on the leaders of the European Union to open the continent to new migrants. In his view, Europe can easily absorb one million refugees but only on a voluntary basis; mandatory quotas don't work he said.

Meeting with Open Society Foundations activists in Istanbul Soros complained that many countries fiercely attack him for his foundation's refugee-related activities.

As an example, he mentioned the Orbán government as being one of the most relentless critics of his foundation's activities; in the meantime, he pledged that despite the criticism he will continue supporting immigration into Europe.
