Background information: migrants criminalised to control cheap labour

The series of large-scale immigration raids started already in September 2002. The first two took place in The Hague and Rotterdam and the media was invited, giving the impression that the authorities were in need of a spectacular event as a deterrence and threat to other migrants to leave the country as well as to show the Dutch public that the authorities really did their ‘job’. During these raids, the police was mainly focusing on immigrants from Bulgaria, Romania and other Balkan countries. The raids are characterised by a deployment of a large police force, a stigmatisation of the immigrants and a lack of legal aid and adequate judicial attention.

The raids were followed by large-scale deportations with charter flights. Thousands were deported to Bulgaria....

Perhaps they shouldn't illegally immigrate

Anonymous 19.Apr.2004 21:20

Perhaps if "refugees" don't want to be deported, they shouldn't enter by illegal means. It's easy enough already to enter Canda, or many European countries if you are a legitimate refugee--i.e. you are fleeing persecution. However, many of these "refugees" you speak of are simply people who have snuck into Europe for more opportunity, who had a decent life in their home country, and who want to freeload off the social welfare systems in Europe. I fully support deporting these "refugees" back. It's one thing to be a legitimate person in need of asylum, it's another to exploit the system.
