Many Parties Demands Drastic Measures against Inflow of More Asylum Seekers

In a parliamentary debate, various political parties came out against accepting a massive additional influx of asylum seekers.  A majority considers that the current influx exceeds society’s ability to absorb newcomers, and that the cabinet has to take “unorthodox” measures in order to restrict further immigration, either in the national or in the general Western European context.  One of the parties supporting these demands is Prime Minister Rutte’s Liberals Party (VVD).  The Netherlands currently chairs the EU for its half-year term.
