Dutch government report: Nothing can be done about immigration

Can anything be done about immigration policy in the Netherlands? The answer to this question was found in the policy directive sent on July 3 from the ministry to the Tweede Kamer.

    It was written in response to the investigation into a possible revision of the UN Migration Pact. Because the conclusions were disheartening, the advice was sent on July 3, which also happens to be the day on which the summer recess starts. “We can’t do anything; it is too expensive,” the report concluded.

    Dutch daily, De Dagelijkse Standaard reported that in the document, numerous fallacies are found, mixed with half-truths. The conclusions drawn are the following: “To adjust immigration policy costs a lot of money and is not worth it. Adjusting the UN Migration Pact would entail too much diplomatic effort, so it should be avoided. And actually, we are all delivered to our fate, and migration is a kind of natural force that we can’t do anything about.”

    The notion of border control is accompanied by images of North Korea, dangerous military zones, and the Iron Curtain. Also, it is falsely suggested that border control actually means “permanently closed borders”.

    It makes no sense, of course, but the message is clear: Border controls are very scary and dangerous. Therefore, the Netherlands must continue to try to make agreements with untrustworthy countries to solve the crisis.

    The cabinet will therefore in future do nothing about illegal entries.

    Thierry Baudet, leader of the Dutch party Forum for Democracy (FvD) denounced the government’s pro-immigration policies. According to new figures, native Dutch people become a minority in their own country before the end of the century.

    “That is not the Netherlands in which we feel at home – and not the Netherlands that we want to pass on to the next generations,” Baudet noted on Facebook. The governing VVD and CDA have refused to pursue responsible policies, while the FvD continues to commit itself to a strict immigration policy and an active remigration policy.

    “We have seen for years that a blind eye is turned to violence from the left,” Baudet recently said on Dutch television. Baudet is 37 and holds a PhD in law.

    The FvD has grown rapidly since its founding in 2015, to become the party with the largest official membership in the Netherlands. The party’s voters consists of young and well-connected professionals and university students, the country’s rightful cultural elite.

    The party also has a large youth wing (JFVD), with around 4 000 members who participate in guest speaker events, a summer camp, and lively online discussions: Its recent membership surge came as a result of a popular Facebook campaign in late 2019, and its YouTube channel, “FVD Journaal” (FvD News), regularly broadcasts well-produced videos in which Baudet presents the party’s views.

    Baudet has not only denounced the Rutte administration’s pro-immigration policies, but has also denounced academia as a swamp of leftist professors indoctrinating students with cultural Marxism; the judiciary as biased and subverting the democratic will of the people; globalists threatening national sovereignty; and immigration as a form of “homeopathic dilution” of the European population.

    “If the cartel continues with uninhibited immigration, nearly half of the workforce will have a migration background in thirty years. That will make a huge stamp on our society and our identity. And with 20 million inhabitants, our little Netherlands is even more full. We must prevent this,” his party said in a statement.

    “Why do VVD and CDA think they can turn the the thermostat of the earth when it comes to climate, but pursuing an active population policy is supposedly ‘impossible’? It’s five to twelve. We need to end mass immigration.”

      Baudet and the FvD well discuss the true cause as to why the Dutch political establishment will do nothing about uncontrolled mass migration and open borders, or respond to the EU and UN policies that prmote such a dangerous agenda. They lack the political will, they are unwilling to invest the time and effort, and they are in a state of denial and despair over the issue. It is undoubtedly the same in many other western European EU member nations. But unless they get new political leadership that puts national sovereignty and Western culture ahead of the European Project or any other EU agenda, they will cease to be nations, perhaps sooner rather than later. A combination of the expansion of the EU adminstrative state, and of non-European mass migration threatens to eliminate the European character of most countries. The threat will not go away; indeed, it increases daily.

      Of course not, because the Marxist need to expand the non-white under class to maintain their privileges…..

        Very good point! The coming race war will keep the focus off the oligarchs.

          Of course, that’s how the story always goes….we’ve seen it before…they can run and hide while innocent people get slaughtered. I am a Dutch citizen by birth and know how the game is played.

      Of course, if the Duch wanted to save their country, no “negotiations” and not much expenditure would be required; they could simply say “F—- the EU and F—- the UN” and take control of their borders, allowing in only those who would improve the country. They could even load some of the immigrants currently residing in Holland, the ones that are never going to fit in and dump them in the middle of the Sahara. They had better start soon, while they still exist as a country.
