The migrant crisis is far from over

MSM like to publish data that seems to indicate the migrant crisis has passed its peaks and immigration is down from its peak in 2015 / 2016. Last month however, some very different numbers emerged in The Netherlands: asylum migration continues to rise. During the first 9 months of 2018, The Netherlands received the same amount of requests for asylum as in all of 2017 (14,545 v 14,716). The coordinating agency needs 5,000 extra housing facilities as thousands of asylum seekers are failing to make the transition from refugee centers to rental apartments (even though they are already prioritized over the native Dutch who have in some cases been waiting for years already).

Most asylum seekers are coming in from Iran,  Syria and Turkey, and there has been a sharp increase in requests from Albanians and Algerians.
