Sweden used to welcome Muslim migrants with
no prerequisites open arms. Adults could even lie about their age without a problem. Like the Affordable Care Act, Sweden refused to deny applicants with pre-existing conditions. In this case, even rapey terrorism. Proper vetting be damned, because tolerance. Now that the sheer volume has created a strain on Sweden’s economy however, the elites have realized they have a serious problem.
The government had already tried deporting. Now, Sweden is doling out cold, hard cash for paying migrants to go back to their country.
A record 4,542 asylum seekers withdrew their applications and left Sweden in the first eight months of 2016 as a result of long processing times, strict new rules on family reunion, and payouts to migrants who voluntarily returned to their country of origin.
As well as detering new claimants, the situation has encouraged a greater number of asylum seekers to take the government up on a scheme which has been in place since the start of 2013: offering grants of up to 30,000 Kronor (£3,500) to individuals and 75,000 Kronor (£8,600) to families who return to their country of origin voluntarily. The money is only handed out after the individual or family has left Sweden.
This next part though…
The Swedish public also appear to be have become more hostile to migrants.
Really? I can’t imagine why. Hold on a second… maybe it’s that Sweden has become the rape capital of the western world? For greater reference, see SWEDEN: Muslim Refugees Gang Rape Two Girls. No Punishment… and SWEDEN: Young Muslim Gangs Terrorize Women at Train Station. Authorities Powerless…). I know, I know, correlation doesn’t exactly equal causation. But in this case… correlation equals causation. More Islam = more rape. Angry comments incoming!
So Sweden is kind of trying to take some action here. I’ll give them credit for that. But I don’t quite understand how “deporting them didn’t work”. Sweden is a small country. These migrants are new to the country. Instead of paying them with taxpayer money to kindly leave, how about just… making them leave? You. Leave. Now.
Methinks Sweden has seen the populist backlash from places like Germany and Britain and they’re concerned about their own “tolerant”, leftist overreach. It’s one thing to virtue signal the world. It’s another to knowingly put your country’s own people at risk in the name of political correctness. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
Hopefully with less rape.
