"Take steps to make permit holders no longer second rate citizens." An open letter from Elles Besselsen to State Secretary Broekers-Knol was published last Saturday, June 26th, in Het Parool.
Elles describes how a large group of permit holders from the 2007 general pardon and their children, are still unable to obtain Dutch passports. Her appeal calls for a return to the policy that was in effect before 2009, or alternatively for a general passport pardon, so that these permit holders can finally participate in our society as fully equal citizens.
