Immigrants apply for Chanceless Asylum to commit Crimes

The Telegraaf daily has requested from the police all documents concerning the arrest of migrants. The request was based on a law which makes this possible. The paper has been supplied with thousands of pages. Part of the migrants from countries which are considered safe apply for asylum knowing that there is hardly any chance of it being granted. While their application is investigated they commit crimes using the asylum-seeker centers as a base for that. The paper writes that the number of such crimes is always far bigger than what the police reports.
