Sweden’s ugly immigration problem

Via David "I state this totally without specific or hard evidence, but my STRONG suspicion is that the natives of Europe are getting
very, VERY tired of:

1. Being swamped by people who don't share their culture or beliefs, and don't want to assimilate.
2. Being swamped by people who come in, attach themselves to the state's teat, and use laws meant to be responsibly used as a living.
3. Being told by the media that anyone who opposes this is a RACIST and CULTURALIST and BIGOT, etc.
4. Being scolded by their politicians too."


Last two paragraphs:

Sweden’s fantasy is that if you socialize the children of immigrants and refugees correctly, they’ll grow up to be just like native Swedes. But it hasn’t worked out that way. Much of the second generation lives in nice Swedish welfare ghettos. The social strains – white flight, a general decline in trust – are growing worse. The immigrant-heavy city of Malmo, just across the bridge from Denmark, is an economic and social basket case.

Sweden’s generosity costs a fortune, at a time when economic growth is stagnant. The country now spends about $4-billion a year on settling new refugees – up from $1-billion a few years ago, Mr. Sanandaji said. And they keep coming. Sweden automatically accepts unaccompanied minors. “We used to take in 500 unaccompanied minors a year,” he said. “This year we are expecting 12,000.”

  1. I believe this is Obama's plan and has been from the start. Allow an invasion of people with no desire to become American. They are here only for the free goodies and want nothing of American culture.
