European Council: Netherlands Ignores Basic Rights of Illegal Immigrants

The European Council has decided that Dutch authorities must provide services to illegal immigrants and asylum seekers who are not allowed to stay in the Netherlands.  This judgment was given after the final judgment of the Committee for Social Rights on this issue.  This followed a complaint by the Dutch Protestant church against the Dutch state. According to the Committee, the Netherlands ignores some basic rights of illegal immigrants, such as food, clothing, and housing.
