Asylum seekers get the boot

Man, that's gotta be rough to get news like this -- especially if you've already made a life for yourself in your new country. No more casual sparkin' of doobage in the caf?s for these guys.

What are the opinions of the readership here? Is this a good move or a bad move by the Netherlands? Is it likely to make them a target for terrorist attacks?

More proof tha America is the only country that does anything for the world.

Sure, fuckers like to bitch when we do stuff, but nobody else makes any contributuion. They'd rather we stand around with our thumbs up our asses like they do.

Typical non-American "Stupid Americans".

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (Reuters) -- The Dutch parliament has approved plans to expel up to 26,000 failed asylum seekers, a move that would be unprecedented in Europe and that has triggered large protests and threats of hunger strikes.


If you apply for something, you are inherently asserting your knowledge that it isn't guaranteed to be granted, why apply for it if it's given to everyone? If the application is denied, why should they keep you? Their isn't a GUARANTEE of asylum...

Quote:

New York-based Human Rights Watch criticized the policy of Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende's government last week, saying sending people home to countries like Somalia and Afghanistan could put them at risk.




So it's the Dutch people's fault that nations like that are so shitty, and they should be made to shoudler the weight? *shakes head*

yeah I'm with you.....

do people think the USA has bettered the world?

I think we've created more distractions than any other country, and we're merely a 300-year-old little baby of a country. I wonder of people realize how much this country has fucked up the world's view of the universe - its like a bunch of stoners befriending a crackhead and before they know it they're all smoking crack too, knowing its bad but not wanting to stop because it feels so good

woah I'm ranting this early in the evening? I'd better get off this machine for a while - later

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Strange how the neocons are so touchy about asylum seekers. They are keen to throw thousands off benefits and into the labour market thus driving down wages for all. Surely immigration can have the same effect and will result in tremendous profits for the rich from exploiting their cheap labour.

Perhaps it's just nothing more than simple racism.

I agree with the Dutch. I think we should throw illegal aliens out of our country, for obvious reasons. I'm probably a minority here. Go ahead and yell at me.

Well, if they're gainfully employed and are an asset, then they should stay! Although it IS their country, so I can't really say too much...

I think people should sit at home in their countries and bitch and whine and be a bunch of useless fucks and let America take care of everything.

What exactly does America take care of? Excluding any heavy handed and poorly executed military campaigns you may be tempted to drone on and on about.

Sadly your country relies on these immigrants to service the black economy..its basically a level of slavery which supports the upper levels of the economy.
