Bring back border controls, says PVV

The anti-immigration PVV has called for border controls to be reintroduced around the Netherlands following Italy’s decision to give visas to thousands of young Libyans and Tunisians fleeing the fighting.


France and Germany are already considering reopening checkpoints on their borders with Italy and Austria.
Party leader Geert Wilders said Italy’s decision is a scandal. ‘We don’t need any more North Africans here,’ the Telegraaf quotes Wilders as saying.
On Tuesday, immigration minister Gerd Leers said he was very angry about Italy’s move.
