U.N. ‘experts’: Dutch government refuses to help homeless invaders, I mean, migrants

(Reuters) – U.N. experts appealed to the Netherlands on Tuesday to provide emergency shelter to homeless migrants invaders this winter, saying it was unacceptable to leave people invaders in the cold in the Christmas season.

A statement from independent U.N. human rights experts said the Dutch government had declined to provide 15 million euros ($18.8 million) in funding to more than 60 municipalities where migrant invader shelters are needed.

Leilani Farha, U.N. special rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, said the government of center-right Prime Minister Mark Rutte is required under international law to provide food, clothing and shelter to the needy [invaders].

“In these dark days before Christmas, it is appalling that the Dutch government will not even commit less than 0.01 percent of its yearly budget to help people invaders living in absolute misery and poverty,” the U.N. special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston, said in the statement.

It said the European Committee of Social Rights, a body that oversees the European Social Charter, recently decided in two separate cases that the Netherlands was violating the right to emergency assistance of adult homeless irregular migrants invaders…


Any chance that the Dutch government is trying to encourage the invaders to leave?  No, it can’t be that, that would be too sensible.  Likely some kind of administrative glitch.

The word ‘irregular’ is a tipoff that these people are boat people from sub-Saharan Africa who landed in Italy, and then, against EU rules, left for the Netherlands.

    Guess what!?
    If they were sent “home” they would no-longer be “homeless”.

      I think the cost of parachutes and a bright red C-130 painted like Santa’s sleigh would be a great way to help them return home and no longer be homeless.

      • And seasonal!

        • Exile1981

          Decorate the parachutes with pictures of crosses and wreaths and it would be festive as well.

      That’s right. They do have a home but it is not the Netherlands.

  • According to this, the Dutch government expects immigrants to pay for integration courses:

    I guess the Dutch are tired of footing the bill.

      That is so racist!

      • I now denounce myself.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Yes, please.
          Horrifically, in some circles, those exact words are spoken with the utmost of sincerity.

    perhaps they should have thought of this prior to trying to enter someone else’s country. #sorrynotsorry.

    If they don’t want to be cold in the Christmas season they can stay in Africa.

    Since Geert Wilders’ party has the highest electoral rating it could be that the ruling coalition is feeling a bit of pressure.

  • Icebow

    Why can’t they just be towed back to the territorial waters from whence they may have come, till everyone involved gets fed up?

    The cost of building planned communities for these economic migrants would be less than the total costs of bringing them to Europe or North America. Let’s build apartments in their home countries, rather than bringing them to us.
    I read somewhere that organized crime is bringing these fake refugees at a tremendous cost. Let’s send them back, build them homes and stop our guilt about not doing more. No one has a right to immigrate to a prosperous country. It’s a privilege.

    • Rosenmops

      I don’t think that would stop them. The communities would fall into corruption and violence because that is their culture, and they would still want to leave.

        Exactly.

      Aid is what has facilitated population explosion. Stop aid of any kind for any population/community with a higher fertility than your own, adjusted too to account for populations where barely-pubescent girls become baby factories.

    • Frau Katze

      They are immigrating to escape their dreadful cultures, rife with corruption. But if enough of them come here, they will just bring it with them.

    Have they refused a one-way ticket out?
