Two banners of populism, european, Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orbán, and minister of Interior and leader of far-right League, Matteo Salvini, have gared this Tuesday in Milan to join positions antinmigración. It was a meeting purely political, not institutional, and hence, it is attempted to leave out Movement 5 Stars, a partner of Government of League. But chosen venue for garing was to prefecture of Milan, an institutional home, and in subsequent press conference were presented with ir respective flags with a message in common: to reduce weight of Brussels and shield borders of europe. And with a slogan to share: “You can curb immigration.” With this affinity laid foundation of what you want it to be a partnership antinmigración. “It will be first of many meetings”, concluded Salvini.
this Is a unique closeness, almost contradictory if one takes into account that Salvini is focused on demand from rest of countries of European Union to assume ir responsibilities in field of migration and take one step ahead to reach an agreement stable over distribution of immigrants. Orban, in turn, bases its policy on negative absolute to receive a single immigrant in ir territory. “Hungary has shown that immigration can be stopped. Before saying all that it was impossible to both at legal level, as a physicist”, launched triumphalist Orbán. Salvini nodded: “we Respect absolute right of Hungary to defend its frontiers.

For leader of League, populist, Orban is “a role model”.
The Hungarian president likes iron hand of Salvini: “it Shows that immigration can be slow also in sea and no one had reached this point, he is first. Your success depends on security of Europe”. Asks you to “not step back”. We also offer “all possible assistance” but did not specify in what way.

The alliances that you have will be after elections. We want to get greatest number of supporters to lump m toger and give it a spin in Europe,” said Hungarian. “We are working in same field, to exclude left-wing and socialist, to bring center of identities that we represent and unite different energies with a common goal,” he said Salvini.
For Brussels, meeting of yesterday, is not reassuring and evidence of a pressing problem: how to deal with threats of extreme right in european elections in spring, when y are beginning to lay foundations of a new movement that moves in same direction.
