Theo Francken: Belgian asylum policy should learn from AustraliaSunday, 15 April 2018 09:55
Like Australia, Belgium should choose itself those who enter its territory and this "at a rate that takes into account the social, economic and cultural capabilities of our country," he argues.
It could then give priority to certain minorities, "like Christians from the Middle East".
Theo Francken adds that more humanitarian aid should be provided to conflict zones. The reason why Belgium has received so many refugees in recent years is primarily because there have "never been so many REAL refugees in the world fleeing war", he writes.
His message is addressed to those who consider Belgian asylum policy too lax. Associations providing assistance to asylum seekers and the French-speaking political opposition are rather of the opposite opinion.
