More and more Dutch people feel like foreigners in their own country, “The Netherlands is no longer the Netherlands”

March 7, 2023

Today Geert Wilders (PVV) was a guest of Ongehoord Nieuws to discuss, among other things, the asylum problem in the Netherlands. “They are not asylum seekers, either. 95% of the people in the asylum seeker centers come from our neighboring countries, via Germany and Belgium. Those are safe countries, so at most, they are migrants who should apply for asylum in the safe countries,” says Wilders.

During the broadcast of Ongehoord Nieuws earlier today, Wilders makes a strong argument on the migration problem in the Netherlands and states that the priorities of the cabinet are completely wrong. “Kaag and Rutte occupy themselves every day with crazy subjects such as nitrogen, climate, you name it! While absolutely nothing is done about this big problem in the Netherlands, asylum-seekers, and the terror against the Netherlands. The borders must be closed, there must be a halt to asylum.” According to Wilders, that is what must be done now.

[Twitter insert] Close the borders! The Netherlands is becoming one big asylum-seeker center. And stop favoring asylum-seekers and discriminating against the Dutch. The PVV believes that Dutch people should again come first!

On the question of how we do that, Wilders is clear. The PVV leader points to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. “You just have to do it,” Wilders says. The Hungarian prime minister just pushed the 80,000 asylum-seekers in his country back. OK, he has been condemned by the European Court, but “he did it anyway,” Wilders continues.

Wilders is also concerned about the pressure migration is having on health care. “In the Netherlands, we have a shortage of 21,000 spaces for elderly people with dementia. They are not there. But there are 5,000 spaces available with great urgency for unaccompanied minor asylum seekers. That is the priority of the Netherlands, and do we really want to live in such a Netherlands?”
