Anti-migrant rhetoric dominates politics in Poland ahead of October vote


Anti-migrant and -refugee rhetoric across the political spectrum

It is not just the right-wing parties stoking fears of mass migration from non-European, primarily Muslim countries.

Former European Council President Donald Tusk, leader of the centrist opposition Civic Coalition, slammed the current government in July for involvement in an EU migration plan that he says would “allow even more people to come from countries like Saudi Arabia, India, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Nigeria and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan”.

In a series of social media videos posted in July in connection with unrest in France triggered by the police killing of a 17-year-old teenager of Algerian and Moroccan descent during a traffic stop, Tusk concludes: “Poles must regain control over this country and its borders.”
