Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, makes some pointed remarks about Afghans who vacation in Afghanistan after claiming refugee status because they are in danger in their homeland.
Geert Wilders furious over vacationing “refugees” in Afghanistan: “Scandalous, let them stay there”

Geert Wilders thinks it is completely ridiculous that so-called refugees from Afghanistan apparently enjoy having vacations in that country, while they had a residence permit in the Netherlands because their lives were not safe there (Afghanistan). So-called because that was, apparently, pure nonsense.
According to the media, “By far, most of the evacuees out of Afghanistan” are Dutch and status holders. “From the group brought back, 708 have a Dutch passport or a refugee passport. They are Afghans with their family members, who once came to the Netherlands for asylum, who are recognized as refugees and are naturalized Dutch.”
Status holders are “refugees” whose applications have been approved but not yet naturalized. And yes, it is a bit strange that the people were in Afghanistan. Because status holders can travel with their “refugee passport”, but they cannot do that to go to their land of origin. Not so crazy, naturally, because they claim to have fled that country. If they then go there on vacation anyway, you know that it was nonsense.
Geert Wilders is furious that the co-called refugees secretly enjoyed a vacation in Afghanistan. And that they did that, by the way, when the criminal Taliban had 70% of the country in their hands, and even a blind person could see that it wouldn’t be long before they would subdue the entire country.
“Scandalous!” writes the PVV leader, absolutely correctly, on Twitter. “Supposedly fled and yet off to Afghanistan. They have simply cheated us.”
Those are hard words, but they are true, of course. Because these types of people are not allowed to go to such a country. They lie about that, and also about the need to come to the West as refugees.
“Let them stay in Afghanistan; do not risk the life of one Dutch soldier or anyone else to save these swindlers,” concludes Wilders about the fake refugees. Because it is his reasoning that they have shown that they are wrongfully labeled as status-holders. And so let them sort it out. Since it was all just a big lie, they can try to rebuild their lives in Afghanistan.
The chance that the cabinet will do this is, of course, nil. Because Sigrid Kaag and Mark Rutte do not care about the lot of real Dutch people, fake refugees can always count on their support.
