The problem is that by going in appeal, and in appeal, and in appeal against refusals, the request to obtain a permanent status runs for years and years. Meaning that children become more Dutch because all these years they live here. Armenia is not war-torn or a dictatorship. So allowing the children to stay is a signal to all applicants from "safe countries" that stretching procedures as long as possible works in their advantage.

After all: if the two children are allowed to stay, isn't it inhuman to keep them separated from their mother? Result: the mother will be granted permission too. Quod Erat Demonstrandum: using your children as pawns will help you.

That is what the Government wants to avoid. Symbols are strong. When Spain allowed the Aquarius to embark in a Spanish port, it was a signal and since then the trafficking of migrants has taken the route to Spain, putting the new minority government over there under pressure.

Princess Laurentien was on the edge. Vague enough but I preferred her to say nothing at all.

'just cool' would probably a more accurate translation of 'gewoon stoer' (although any translation looses parts of the meaning in Dutch) in this case

Thanks! "Tough" is one of the English words that was imported into the German language but with a wider range of meanings. The German "tough" is accurate, the English one indeed not quite so..


On November 3 Princess Laurentien was invited as a special guest at the finals for the new new Child Ambassadors in Amersfoort:
