Liberals: Stop the Influx of Non-Western Immigrants Into The Hague

The Liberal Party (VVD) faction in The Hague municipal council requested a temporary stop on the influx of non-Western immigrants into the town. Municipal Council Member Arjen Lakerveld said that the large number of non-Western immigrants in The Hague puts tremendous pressure on social services. There is no solution unless the influx of poor people is stopped. The Liberal Party says that the so-called Rotterdam Law can be applied. This means that an alderman of a town can request from the minister that he assign certain areas of a town where people interested in housing there must have a certain minimum income. The VVD wants this law to apply to the entire town. However if that isn’t possible, it has listed seven neighborhoods where it should be applied.
