Poles complain about "discriminatory" Dutch immigration plans

The EU's flagship open borders policy is under threat from the Dutch, of all people.

Faced with an unsustainable burden on their welfare system from EU immigrants looking to take advantage of the high standard of living the Dutch enjoy, the Dutch government have produced a policy paper outlining plans to curtail immigration from EU member states and to deport those that make disproportionate welfare claims or commit serious or repeated crimes.

Poland has complained to the EU Commission, calling the Dutch proposals "discriminatory".  There are 150k Poles in the Netherlands.
