Foreigners with a residence permit should be checked every five years to see if they're a 'danger to society'. In this way youth who misbehave could be deported much more easily, says Ahmed Marcouch, Labor neighborhood council head for Slotervaart, Amsterdam. Parliamentarian Henk Kamp (VVD), who had spent the past couple of days visiting the neighborhood, will bring the idea up in The Hague.
This proposal comes after five youth of the so-called Mondriaan Group who were let out of jail the week before New Year's, made the neighborhood unsafe again. One of the boys' residence permit had expired. Marcouch is pressing the IND (immigration service) to deport the boy.
Marcouch's proposal includes people who come to the Netherlands through family reunifications. They often don't have a Dutch passport. Today they easily get an extension every five years.
If youth who misbehave would run the risk of being deported it would restrain others, according to Marcouch. Kamp embraces the proposal.
