Third World immigration does not contribute to building European economies, but is actually a burden on the economy, a new report from Belgium’s Vlaams Belang party has revealed.
According to a series of articles released by the populist, anti-immigration, anti-EU Flemish separatist party, “crippling unemployment rates among immigrants” are always blamed on ‘racism’ and ‘exclusion’ but this is just a feint designed to blame Europeans.
The VB article points out that most other nations (apart from the US, which is being overrun with Mexican illegals) have restrictive and selective immigration policies.
“We [in Belgium] get the low-level and unskilled workers,” the article said, pointing out that this has become even more of a problem because multinational industrial activities have largely relocated their factories to low-wage countries such as China.
Moreover, low-skilled migrants in the US and [elsewhere] do not have the same extensive welfare net to fall back on, as they do in Belgium.
“In Belgium, the social safety net has, for many migrants, become a hammock,” the article said, adding that this situation does not “invite self-reliance and integration.”
Furthermore, there is no “multicultural enrichment” either, unless one counts rising crime, intolerance against “infidels”, forced marriages, headscarves and burkas, honor killings, or genital mutilation of girls and women as a positive contribution, the VB article said.
“The Central Planning Bureau in the Netherlands calculated that an average immigrant costs 230,000 euros in welfare, while contributing 226,000 euros.
“The newsmagazine Elsevier calculated the total cost of immigration in the Netherlands was currently at 200 billion euros, and research organization Nyfar said that immigration of non-Western immigrants cost 7.2 billion euros per year.
“Economists suggest that immigration benefits us, but there is no profit in it, because they too often rely on benefits and cause welfare costs to increase.
“Others say it is a solution to the problem of an aging population. Nonsense!”
Dutch economist Van Dalen has proven that it is “fooling the people” to present immigration as a solution to the aging population problem.
“A simple calculation quickly makes clear that immigration in such colossal numbers will create new problems which will overshadow the old ones.
“Van Dalen calculated that under this false scenario, the Netherlands would have a population of 109 million inhabitants by 2100. And yet there are in the EU and the UN to find fools who advocate such a scenario: the importation of millions of new immigrants.
“It is collective suicide … And we have not even mentioned the social problems. Mass immigration undermines the cohesion of society and creates increasing segregation and crime. Where are the famous ‘benefits’?”
Van Dalen showed that the answer was educating our own people as a cheaper option than importing immigrants.
“Why then do some employers and leftist churches—a bizarre unholy alliance between ‘big business’ and the immigration lobby—still demand open borders?”
