Liberal claims that “refugees” and “immigration” would boost the European economy have been exposed as lies yet again with the nest that 89 percent of all those granted “refugee” status in the Netherlands are still existing on welfare handouts more than two years after invading that country.
According to a report on the Dutch public broadcaster Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (NOS), only 11 percent of “asylum seekers” who received a residence permit in 2014 had managed to find a job within the first two-and-a-half years they were in the country.
Quoting statistics from the state’s Statistics Netherlands (CBS), the report added that those “asylum seekers” who had found work were mainly employed in as waiters, or in “temporary employment.”
CBS Netherlands carried out the survey on behalf of the Ministries of Social Affairs and Employment, Justice and Security, Education, Culture and Science and Health, Welfare and Sport, as they wanted to “know what happens to asylum seekers who arrived in the Netherlands from 2014 onwards,” the report continued.
Only 29 percent of Afghans found work, most often through contacts with other Afghanis who have been settling in the Netherlands since the 1980s.
Afghans however make up the minority of the new fake refugee invasion force. In 2014, 10,000 of the 20,000 “asylum seekers” claimed to come from Syria, while 4,000 claimed to come from Eritrea.
After having obtained a residence permit, the invaders must pass a “civic integration examination” within three years, but as of October 1, 2016, only 6 percent had succeeded in this task.
Only 5.8 percent of the Eritreans have found work, and 10.5 percent of the Syrians.
According to official figures, a single “refugee” in Amsterdam is paid €924.06 per month in welfare, plus housing, and medical cover. A “family” gets a basic allowance of €1,320.09 per month, plus €197.67 per month for each child under the age of 5, and €240.03, for each child aged 6 to 11, and €282.39 for each child aged 11 to 17.
In addition, refugees also qualify for Bijzondere Bijstand (“Special Benefits”) to pay for “essential living expenses” such as washing machines, refrigerators, or to “attend sport clubs.”
In other words, an average family of five “refugees” costs the Dutch taxpayer at least €2000 per month—and likely more.
Given that nearly 90 percent of “refugees” have been drawing this amount out for more than two years, the net drain on the Dutch economy must be in the billions by now—all of which proves once again that the Third World invasion does not “benefit” the economy of European nations, but actually contributes significantly to its destruction.
