Dutch Asylum Policy Attracts Foreigners

Former Parliamentarian Hans Gualtherie van Weezel is departing chairman of the commission which supervises the return of asylum seekers. He said that while the Dutch law concerning immigrants originally was quite severe, now a machinery has developed of lawyers, interest groups and politicians which creates exceptions. The result is that asylum seekers increasingly choose The Netherlands as a country to go to. Together with Germany and Sweden, that is The Netherlands. He concluded that it has become almost a mission impossible to make foreigners leave The Netherlands.
