Immigrants Make Up Two Thirds of Dutch Emigrants

January 28 2011

According to reports in the Volkskrant, two thirds of emigrants from the country are ethnic minority residents of the Netherlands frustrated by poor job prospects and intolerance in the country. This is particularly true for well-educated young people with Turkish or Moroccan backgrounds. An MP for the Liberal Democratic party D66 commented that “this is very bad for the economy… It is a real shame that so many well-educated people are being driven out by the symbolic drum rolls from the PVV.”
