“Madness”: The Netherlands spent nearly $1 Billion on Asylum Seekers

Our article in the June NERTrojan Horse Federal Refugee Program Brings Jihadi Threat to America: An Interview with Ann Corcoran,  spoke about the secretive billion dollar U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (U.S. RAP). We noted:

More than 1.3 million Muslims have been brought into the U.S. via the billion dollar U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (US RAP). Annually the U.S. RAP brings in 70,000 refugees allotted by the UN High Commissioner of Refugees (UNHCR). These annual USRAP allotments are virtually controlled by the UNHCR, which designates refugee populations most at risk. The current USRAP allotment exceeds that of all other countries combined. Separate from the US RAP are other legal avenues for Muslim immigration that include the asylum program that converts illegal border crossers into legal immigrants with benefits equivalent to refugees, the Diversity “Green Card” Lottery and the investor EB-5 Visa Program.

According to Ann Corcoran, editor of the Refugee Resettlement Watch (RRW) blog, this UN refugee agency “virtually calls the shots” for the U.S. RAP that provides legal refugee immigrants with a veritable smorgasbord of cash welfare, Social Security benefits for elderly refugees, Medicaid, educational  assistance and a pathway to ultimate citizenship. Including both federal and state level benefits; some experts estimate that the annual total cost of the U.S. RAP could be upwards of $12 to $20 billion annually.

Geert Wilders was appalled today, when he learned that the Dutch immigration authorities spent nearly $1 billion (868 million Euros) on support of asylum seekers in 2014 reported by the NLTimes:

 The Netherlands spent 868 million euros ($972.2 million) on services for roughly 24,000 asylum seekers last year, according to figures Security & Justice Secretary Klaas Dijkhoff provided to …Freedom Party (PVV). The party leader, Geert Wilders, blasted the amount, saying it translates to roughly 36 thousand euros ($40, 320) per asylum seeker.

“Madness!” Wilders proclaimed on Twitter, in a call to shut Dutch borders.

The government spent 485 million euros ($542.3 million) on the COA, the Dutch agency responsible for the reception and placement of refugees. Another 200 million ($224 million) went to the Immigration and Naturalization Office, which all immigrants entering and residing in the Netherlands are required to contact. Over 70 million ($78.4 million) went to the Repatriation and Departure Service, which also handles the extradition of criminals to other nations.

It was not immediately clear if the amounts provided to those agencies are only for their work directly related to asylum seekers, or if it is broader budget data.

Also, while some 56 million ($62.7 million) went to investigative and research services, about 26 million ($29.1 million) was earmarked for free legal representation of asylum seekers.

Dutch NGO Nidos also received 24 million euros ($26.9 million) to provide education, welfare and guardianship services to youth refugees. Another NGO, Vluchtelingenwerk (Refugees), received 6.3 million euros ($7.6 million) to help with integration, reunification, and asylum service. Other organizations received 700 thousand euros ($784,000).

Those amounts cited by Wilders are just for asylum seekers in the Netherlands. Expenditures for  legal migrants under the liberal Dutch immigration programs may be several magnitudes greater than that. That could raise this year’s allocations by the EU, dealing with the flood of illegal migrants crossing the Mediterranean. Moreover, there is the allocation of thousands of Syrian refuges escaping the civil war and ISIS conflicts.  This is the latest revelation by the Freedom Party.Wilders is endeavoring to rein in out of control spending for what amounts to mass Muslim and other EU immigration.

Note that like the U.S. RAP, the Dutch use a network of NGOs, equivalent to voluntary agencies here in the U.S., to provide processing and support for asylees. Time to roll back the Islamic Dir al Hijra (migration) strategy both in the Netherlands and here in the U.S. costing billions of dollars bringing jihadis to foment Islamic terrorism both at home and abroad.

4 Year Sentence for Returning Dutch ISIS Fighter Who Threatened Geert Wilders

The Public Prosecutors in the Hague are demanding a sentence of less than four years for an ISIS returnee who threatened the life of Geert  Wilders. The NLTimes reported:

Suspected jihadist Mohamed A discussed plans for an attack on PVV leader Geert Wilders with others. This was revealed during the criminal case against the 22 year old man from Delft, who is on trial for the preparation of a robbery and possession of three firearms.

NOS reports that A refused to respond to questions about the intercepted conversations regarding an attack on Wilders. He kept repeating that he invokes his right to remain silent, but he previously stated that the conversations were “tough talk” and “James Bond stories”.  These conversations took place in A’s mother’s car, in which the police had placed listening devices.

A was arrested last year after an undercover police operation. At the request of an undercover agent A. purchased three firearms to commit a robbery. This operation was set up after the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) tipped the police that A was trying to get money together to finance the international jihad.

According to the AIVD, A is a returned foreign rebel fighter in the Syrian civil war and he spent six months in Syria. This is based on the statement from Jejoen Bontinck, another foreign rebel fighter who recognized A in a photograph. Bontinck claims that he and A met in the ISIS camp and spent one day together in an ISIS cell. According to Bontinck, A. was locked up because he did not follow an order from a superior.

A denies this. “I spent six months in Turkey and i was on the border between Turkey and Syria 11, 12 times. I helped poor people there.”

This should be a warning to the ruling Rutte Coalition in the Hague Parliament that a threat to one member is a threat to all.  Further, it underlines the suggestions by Wilders, leader of the Freedom Party, that Holland should reassert national border controls, notwithstanding being a signatory of the Shengen open borders system covering 26 EU nations. It also illustrates the dilemma the Dutch face from having adopted a liberal immigration and welfare system that facilitated mass Muslim immigration-the Dar al-Hijra doctrine. Thus, creating  a large minority Muslim community rejecting foundational Judeo Christian values seeking to impose compliance with Islamic Sharia law.  Moreover, with the rise of the Salafist /Jihadist self-styled Islamic State, Dutch Muslim émigrés like A Mohammed and hundreds if not thousands of others feel compelled to join to fight for the self-declared Caliphate.  Wilders has proposed that such returning Jihadists be stopped at the borders and be subject to a mandatory review of their citizenship, passports taken away and ejected.

Yesterday, Wilders sent a letter to the Speaker of the Hague Parliament requesting that an exposition of the Garland AFDI Muhammad  Art Expo be held there.  During an interview on the Fox News Hannity show, Wilders suggested that the best way of assuring freedom of expression would be to put on additional Muhammad cartoon competitions and expos like the one he proposed for the Hague Parliament.  He wrote in a May 18, 2015 Fox News op-ed::

The winner of the Garland cartoon contest was a former Muslim. There is something very symbolic about the fact that he is an apostate. Under Islamic Sharia law, apostasy is punishable by death. Under the same law, making illustrations of the prophet Muhammad is also punishable by death.

[…]

Under Islamic Sharia law, depicting Muhammad is a crime. But as an American, the artist is not living in an Islamic country. He is living in America. In America, you are allowed to make pictures and drawings, no matter what the Sharia says. And you are also allowed to change your religion and become an apostate.

We must do exactly the opposite of what the terrorists want. If they want us to stop drawing cartoons and we react by showing even more cartoons, the terrorists will have lost. This is why I will ask the Speaker of the Dutch Parliament to invite the Garland Mohammed cartoons to be shown in the Parliament of the Netherlands. We should show them all over the free world.
