VVD MINDER IMMIGRATIE CampaingWatch 2012

De VVD wil een eerlijk en restrictief vreemdelingenbeleid. De VVD ziet kansen voor hoogopgeleide kennismigranten om ons land en onze economie te versterken. Maar de ongecontroleerde toestroom van kansarme en laagopgeleide migranten van de laatste decennia, leidde tot grote problemen in de wijken, op scholen, op de arbeidsmarkt en op het vlak van criminaliteit.

De aanhoudende toestroom van kansarme migranten werkt het oplossen van integratieproblemen tegen en moet daarom worden gestopt. Dankzij de VVD zijn vanaf 2002 belangrijke stappen genomen om het asiel- en immigratiebeleid streng, rechtvaardig en consequent toe te passen. Dit beleid wil de VVD voortzetten. Goede bewaking en controle van de Europese buitengrenzen zijn daarbij van belang.

Huwelijksmigratie

Als je als Nederlander de liefde van je leven in het buitenland ontmoet, moet het natuurlijk mogelijk zijn samen in Nederland te gaan wonen. Maar wel onder de voorwaarde dat de buitenlandse partner zicht heeft op een volwaardige plaats in de samenleving.

Huwelijksimmigranten worden daarom alleen toegelaten wanneer zij naar Nederlandse maatstaven voldoende zijn opgeleid en de Nederlandse taal in woord en geschrift beheersen. Zij moeten ook kunnen aantonen voldoende kennis te hebben van de Nederlandse samenleving en hier positief tegenover te staan. Er wordt geen verblijfsvergunning toegekend als de partner jonger is dan 24 jaar, of als deze een neef of nicht is van de aanvrager, of als de aanvrager over een inkomen beschikt van minder dan 120 procent van het minimumloon. Misbruik van huwelijksmigratie – zoals schijnhuwelijken – moet hard worden bestreden. Ook om dit te voorkomen wil de VVD de termijn voor het verkrijgen van een permanente verblijfsvergunning oprekken naar tien jaar. Inkoop van AOW geschiedt op basis van een reële kostprijs.

We maken een eind aan de export van kinderbijslag buiten de EU. Jongeren onder de 27 jaar kunnen als het aan de VVD ligt voortaan geen aanspraak meer maken op bijstand. Deze maatregelen voorkomen dat mensen onterecht aanspraak maken op onze sociale voorzieningen en stimuleren dat mensen integreren door middel van arbeidsparticipatie. De VVD wil de Europese richtlijn voor gezinshereniging wijzigen. De leeftijds- en inkomenseis moeten omhoog. Als dit niet lukt moet Nederland een opt-out bepleiten zodat Nederland deels zijn eigen regels kan bepalen.

Immigratie uit overzeese gebiedsdelen

Ook vanuit de voormalige Nederlandse Antillen komt een stroom kansarme migranten richting Nederland. De VVD wil de vestiging van kansarme migranten uit Curaçao, Aruba en Sint Maarten tegengaan door criteria te verbinden aan een permanent verblijf in Nederland. Dit is in lijn met de voorwaarden die de Antillen zelf stellen aan Nederlanders die zich daar willen vestigen (een bepaald inkomen, geen strafblad). Deze voorwaarden gelden voortaan ook andersom.

Kenniswerkers

De VVD wil kenniswerkers en talenten actief uitnodigen om zich in Nederland te vestigen om onze economie te versterken. Daartoe moeten we de procedures voor kennismigranten versoepelen, ook de regels van huwelijksmigratie en inburgering. Bedrijven en kennisinstellingen moeten toptalent met een minimum aan bureaucratie naar Nederland kunnen halen. Vergunningen voor kenniswerkers willen we sneller toekennen.

The display by LG at this year’s IFA offers some fascinating technology. One of the main exhibits is the 55 inch OLED television, which is due to be launched onto the market this year at a cost of less than 10,000 euros. The technology is based on WOLED s, i.e. white OLEDs, generating brightness by using four identical, white, organic light diodes.
