"Maggie De Block solves 20 percent of the total budget deficit on her own. That's how we do that at Open VLD", a tweet by her Flemish liberal colleague, Pensions Minister Alexander De Croo said.
Maggie De Block announced that she needs less cash to implement her asylum policies. Asylum seekers are no longer being sent to the local social services of the OCMW, procedures have been simplified and terms have been reduced.
On top of that, the number of new asylum applications has dropped since a new list with "safe countries" was released and after a campaign was launched to deter potential asylum seekers to come to Belgium in their home country, saying that Belgium is not always the land of milk and honey.
