The Netherlands: Thousands of rejected migrants “unable” to be deported to their home countries, which refuse to take back their citizens.
Unable…or a lack of will and determination to make it happen. In the end, it’s not about insane UN rules or international protocol, but doing whatever is necessary to protects one’s people and country.
Ask President Dwight Eisenhower.
– Algeria was the country that refused the largest number of requests, while Afghanistan, Morocco, Iraq and Iran frequently failed to respond.
Thousands of rejected migrants are stuck (stuck? They are free to go home) in the Netherlands because their home countries have refused to take them back, according to figures from the repatriation service Dienst Terugkeer en Vertrek (DTV).
The statistics, published by the Telegraaf newspaper, showed that 2,310 requests to take back a foreign national who had been refused permission to stay in the Netherlands were turned down between 2014 and May 2018. A further 8,020 requests were withdrawn because no answer was received within a year. During 2018 the DTV’s efforts to repatriate failed migrants failed more times than they succeeded.
* This is simply an outrage but the EU weakly tolerates this type of behavior from foreign leaders. But money talks and is the best leverage to “adjust attitudes” very quickly.
The EU must collectively end all foreign aid and travel for countries and leaders who do not cooperate fully and swiftly. This abuse has gone on for far too long and it must be dealt with forcefully and with full determination.
Europe cannot remain hostage to the leaders of the Middle East and Africa, nor to the demands of the UN.
Part of the problem is the Netherlands itself: Migrants who have exhausted the application and appeals process are required to leave the country within 28 days, after which they lose all right to accommodation and other state support – unless they co-operate with their removal.
Unless they co-operate with their removal? Few migrants will leave “voluntarily”…without a good push out. Requests to leave seldom work; the migrants will have to be “assisted” to leave, if one understands the type of assistance that works. 😉
