AMSTERDAM – Illegal aliens should actively be tracked down. The justice department should prosecute mayors and officials who offer help to illegal aliens.
Liberal VVD MP Henk Kamp has written this in a memo on migration, the Volkskrant reports on Monday.
Kamp is not happy about the "intrusive presence of Islam" in the country. He therefore wants to ban mosques from broadcasting the call to prayer.
He also reportedly wants a ban on "all clothing that conceals the face." Young people 18 and older with dual nationality must be able to lose their Dutch nationality and be deported if they become involved in crime, Kamp says.
In addition Kamp wants the minimum age for bringing a spouse from abroad to be raised from 21 to 24 years of age. Prospective candidates for marriage in the Netherlands should demonstrate with DNA tests that they are not a cousin of the partner they wish to join here.
The applicant or marriage migrant should be charged EUR 7,500 to migrate here; this amount would be returned to the applicant after five years if no appeal is made on welfare. The MP wants to reduce the number of marriage migrants from 30,000 to 5,000.
The former defence minister also speaks out against discrimination. "Every individual has the right to be treated without prejudice. Discrimination is as much a threat to society as radicalisation."
Kamp will present his memo in Parliament on Tuesday during the debate on the budget for the justice ministry.
