This is not what Europeans were told. They were told that the migrants were needed to make up for an aging work force. But instead, the Muslim migrants are a drain on the economy, and not just in the Netherlands, either. Many of them come with the belief that the kuffar owe them a living, in lieu of paying the jizya. So they come with no intention of working. Rape rates and other crime rates have skyrocketed. There is simply no upside to the hijrah. But the European political and media elites remain adamantly on course, bent on the destruction of their own societies.
In contrast to what was told, migrants are far from economically beneficial for society. Research by mathematician Jan van Beek shows that admitting non-western asylum seekers into the country, results in high net costs for Dutch society, WNL reports.
In his research Van Beek tries to make a distinction between asylum seekers and migrants that come to work or study in the Netherlands. He sees a high dependence on benefits in the asylum seeking group.
“You can calculate what people during their lifetimes contribute to government finances and what they receive in benefits and pensions,” van Beek says.
According to him, the cost for non-western asylum seekers are “a few hundred thousand euros”, which is much higher than the fifty to one hundred thousand euros that a 2003 statistical report showed.
Van Beek’s calculation shows that while the average non-western asylum seeker costs 250,000 euros during his lifetime, the costs become higher by family reunification and getting kids.
The result is that just one asylum seeker could cost Dutch society not 250,000 but 4 x 250,000; because family reunification and children have to be incorporated in the costs for society as well.
“But this is an estimate, it can be much more or less, we have to calculate that. But you have to think in amounts of this order and they are substantial amounts.
When we add the number of asylum seekers in the Netherlands we get approximately: 2014 (20,000), for 2015 (54,000), for 2016 (31000) and for 2017 (30.000).
Adding the numbers, we see that the Netherlands gives asylum to 131,000 people, of whom a very large majority come from non-western countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Iran and Albania.
If we make a conservative estimate we can say 85% are non-western, which means that 111,350 non-western migrants received asylum in the Netherlands.
By multiplying this number by the estimated amounts of Van Beek we land into billions of euros. For example 250,000 (per migrant) x 111,350 is already more than 27 billion….
