Poland’s ruling party ‘Law and Justice’ has decided to hold a referendum to ask voters whether they support receiving hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced the decision in a new video published on social media. It is planned to be held simultaneously with the next election on October 15.

In addition to disagreements over migration, Law and Justice has long been at loggerheads with the EU over the perception that the Warsaw government is “subverting democratic norms”.

Poland’s ruling party wants to ask voters in a referendum whether they support accepting “thousands of illegal immigrants from the Middle East and Africa” ​​as part of an EU relocation plan, the prime minister said on Sunday. Because his conservative party wants to retain power in the October parliamentary election.”

The ‘Law and Justice’ party will use migration in its campaign as it did when it took power in 2015.

The EU’s joint policy for illegal migrants has become one of the bloc’s biggest and longest-running political crises.

,Morawiecki said the question would be: ‘Do you support the admission of thousands of illegal immigrants from the Middle East and Africa under forced relocation mechanisms imposed by European bureaucracy?’

The video announcing the question included scenes of burning cars and other street violence in Western Europe. A black man brandishes a large knife in apparent apprehension of committing a crime. Party leader Jarosław Kaczyński then says: ‘Do you want the same thing to happen in Poland? Do you want to stop being the master of your country?

In 2015, after the collapse of the asylum system, there is an ongoing battle over the responsibility of illegal immigrants.

Poland became a leading state two years ago when migrants began crossing through Belarus.

So, now, the Polish government will deploy an additional 2,000 troops along its border with Belarus to counter the growing migration pressure on the region.

A Separate AP reports:

“those days [2021]Large numbers of migrants from the Middle East and Africa arrived at the border, their travel facilitated by flights and visas provided by the Minsk government – ​​considered by Warsaw a form of ‘hybrid warfare’.

[…] The new troops will be in addition to the 2,000 troops already on the border. They support the work of hundreds of police and border guard officers, according to [Polish News Agency] PAP.”

“Where once Poland’s barbershop stripes and Belarus’s faded Soviet insignia divided the two countries, now stands a 116-mile-long 12-foot-high fence that is perhaps the most dangerous border in the European Union.”

Initially illegal immigrants came from the Middle East, but now migrants are coming from countries like India and sub-Saharan Africa.

“It’s a kind of luxury way of entering Europe compared to crossing the Mediterranean” explains [Polish official] Ms Zhdanowicz says that sometimes the migrants are well-equipped and look more like tourists than desperate refugees. He said that while some are fleeing the conflict, others are “naïve” and are heading to Germany and Scandinavia in search of better economic opportunities.

And of course, the border situation is further escalated as the newly arrived Wagner mercenaries are ‘another wild card’.

“While the local people have shown bravery, war and the concerns of marauding migrants are also threatening one of the nation’s favorite pastimes. ‘Women are afraid to pick mushrooms in the forest, because they don’t know who is there,’ said Kamil Makarovka, a beekeeper in the border village of Krinki.
