Immigration Platforms of Parties Are Against European Union Rules


Two professors of migration law, Thomas Spijkerboer (Free University Amsterdam) and Kees Groenendijk (Nijmegen University), have expressed the opinion that five of the parties represented in Parliament today and participating in the 9 June parliamentary elections have clauses in their election platforms which contradict EU rules on immigration.
