She has been in Dutch politics since 1998, seems her loyalty resides there.

The rest of the parties seemed very pleased with this shining example of "integration".
Well, she's an advocate of women's rights, which i good in my book. She was imprisoned in Morocco for her activities.
Prominent Morrocans in the Netherlands feel that parliament member Arib should seize her advisory work for Morocco They feel her job as representative of the people is irreconcilable with her membership of the migration workgroup that advises the Morrocan kind directly or indirectly.
I don't understand why she is even allowed to be in Dutch politcs if she isn't even willing to fully commit to our country.
The Dutch Government even wants to prosecute his own citizens who went to the middle east to fight ISIS.
While I don't really see a problem as people should be judged on their ability to do their job not based on their heritage or nationality,
