Immigrants the new target?

More and more details of the Dutch government programme agreed by the right-wing coalition negotiators are being leaked. The right-wing party leaders apparently wanted to introduce draconian measures to reduce the numbers of immigrants to the Netherlands and limit the rights of those already here.The Dutch De Telegraaf calls a spade a spade: "Complete ban on the Burqa" screams its front-page headline. As well as a general ban on forms of dress that cover the face completely. And police and members of the judiciary (Judges, prosecutors etc.) will be forbidden to wear headscarves...here in Turkey, were 99% of the population is Muslim, you're not even allowed to wear a headscarf attending university...
