The Dutch government told the UN to quit bothering them on Tuesday, after the UN had demanded that they do more to help keep the invading hordes which line their streets from freezing.
An estimated 8,000 asylum seekers are turned down every year in the Netherlands and left up to their own devices pending expulsion. Many end up living on the street.
“In these dark days before Christmas, it is appalling that the Dutch government will not even commit less than 0.01 percent of its yearly budget to help people living in absolute misery and poverty,” UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human right, Philip Alston.
“Assisting migrants living on the streets is not a matter of charity,” he said in a statement on Tuesday, noting that the European Committee of Social Rights (ECSR) had recently ruled that the Netherlands was “violating the right to emergency assistance of adult homeless irregular migrants”.
The Dutch government recently rejected a 15-million euro ($19 million) appeal from 60 local municipalities to look after homeless migrants over the winter.
Junior security and justice minister Fred Teeven of the liberal VVD party said he does not want to encourage rejected asylum seekers to stay in the Netherlands.
But his ministry contested what it called “one-sided information” from the ECSR that informed the UN rapporteur’s complaint.
Letting street monkeys freeze to death is hardcore. And I support it!
Now these apes are all like “maybe we shouldn’t have made fun of Black Pete! They’re not bluffing! They’re really going to let our black asses freeze to death!”
I would have liked it though if the Dutch government had released an official statement in response to the UN saying “let them eat snow.”
