Question for written answer P-005890-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
György Hölvényi (PPE)

 Subject:  ‘Migrant cards’ — bank cards for immigrants
 Answer in writing 

The Commission is — unacceptably — maintaining radio silence on the question of ‘migrant cards’ and has given no information about the matter.

I believe a large number of Hungarian and other citizens are awaiting the replies of the Commission President to the following questions:

Who checks on who is using these anonymous cards (and how is this done)? What is the money which is withdrawn used for?

Does the Commission think it is right for migrants often to use this money to pay for human smuggling or even to finance terrorism?

Does the Commission think it is right for EU citizens’ money to be transferred to migrants? Is it right that, while migrants queue for cash machines, withdraw money one after the other and are able to buy themselves all kinds of goods, local families have to look on nonplussed?
