This brief summary talks about the number of refugees who have been taken into the Netherlands since the European quota plan was drawn up. While the Netherlands was supposed to accept 9,000 people under this plan, it ended up taking 2,100 refugees. However, another difference is that there is a significantly lower amount of people claiming refugee status – making it harder to know how many refugees have entered the country.

The Dutch News source also notes that a foundation We Gaan Ze Halen (we are going to fetch them) filed a lawsuit against the Dutch state for not taking in as many asylum seekers as it should have due to the EU resettlement deal. This makes one wonder what the real reason behind the difference in the actual versus expected numbers is.
