  • E-Petition brings about Government Immigration debate

    Hi

    Electronic vox-pop in the form of the E-Petition has brought about a debate in Parliament today, over immigration.

    Even though the general popn has been concerned about the levels of immigration and the various perceived issues around it, Governments have been nervy about discussing it openely for fear of being seen as racist

    Though I'm not expecting politicians to have an epihany, at least the door has been opened.

    That was a major factor in the rise of nationalist parties here -

    Since all mainstream parties ignored or minimalized the problems associated with immigration - smaller parties capitalized on it and it got them up to 30% in some cases.

    That in turn forced traditional politics to adress the subject and take action -

    the concept is called "whip-party" over here, a smaller faction that can put ignored issues on the agenda of major ones.

      We should aim to reverse migration not just limit the numbers, IMO.

        Most problems we have here are actually with second or third generation people of foreign descent, these are technically Belgians, "reversion" is really not an option in this case.

        "Migration by marriage" is also a problem, you cannot prevent a Belgian from marying someone from the old country, even if this person really has no economic future here.

        Strictly new influx is heavily regulated and not as much of a problem.

          Offer them money, that would probably work.


          Just for the economically useless, mind.

              To the land of their ancestors, if the want, where they might even be happier and where they wouldn't be a burden here.

              It's only an offer, not compulsory.

                Hi

                That assuming their ancestral country would take them back.

                We need some immigration but it should be strictly enforced, and the deportation of illegals should be equally enforced.

                  What we're dealing with now is mostly the result of uncontrolled immigration of 50's - 70's, combined with a failure to incorperate the descendents of the original immigrants into the mainstream economic system for whatever reasons may be.

                  New migration policy *is* reasonably enforced imho -
