Sweden’s ugly immigration problem

Sweden spends about $4-billion a year on settling new refugees. Immigrants make up only about 16% of the population but receive 58% of welfare payments. The majority of people charged with murder, rape and robbery are either first- or second-generation immigrants.

New York Times: Sweden, Nation of Open Arms, Debates Implications of Immigration
Sweden is experiencing a clash of ideals. While the country seeks to maintain a humanitarian ideal, public concerns around immigration have begun to shift the politics of traditionally liberal Sweden to tighter immigration controls and more restrictive policies.

This chart is based on the latest crime data from the Swedish government on foreign-born Swedes, released in 2005. Sweden currently refuses to disclose any newer statistics on crime committed by immigrants in the country.  As of 2016, 18.3% of the inhabitants in Sweden are foreign-born, up from 12.4% in 2005.

Where did peaceful, low-crime Sweden go? Why does Sweden now have the second-highest number of rapes in the world? Ingrid Carlqvist of the Gatestone Institute explains.

  1. Far right propaganda. Do a little research on the sources and issues at hand before scaring people and passing along xenophobic hysteria. Let the fear in and seek objective truth. Otherwise the fear is going to destroy you.

  2. If anyone is trying to "scare" anyone it is Trump and his belief that people coming into the US are going to "make the sky fall".

  3. Whether it's Hispanics at our southern border, or Muslims in our airports, the one thing they ALL have in common is what they are NOT; White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant, and Conservative. Starting to see the pattern here?

    So, 16 of the 18% of immigrant arrests were for being undocumented? That knocks the "rapist immigrant" myth down to #12-- behind the all-American rapes... We're fearing the wrong people!

    1. Keep singing that tune and see how fast your head rolls off those scrawny shoulders of yours when given the ultimatum to convert to Islam or else.

      11:37 - There's no evidence or any indication that such a situation will ever occur in this country.

    3. What brand of fascism would YOU force us to convert to? Just curious.

    Our Leader's comment about Sweden tells more about his suitability for the job he has been elected to-- and the gullibility of too many voters-- than it does about islamofascism.

    The rule of thumb is, if you want to know what he's going to tweet about, watch the Scarborough report and Fox News before 10 AM every morning. He doesn't remember facts; he remembers a vivid theme and applies it to a noun.

    1. Well, at least since you keep your head buried in the sand (or keep it stuck elsewhere) you won't be missing it once the believers of that peaceful religion lop it off!

  6. I got a letter from a cousin in Denmark a couple of months ago. Funny how there was no mention of a refugee crime wave. Since Denmark and Sweden are practically next door to each other, and a lot of refugees pass through it, I would have thought she'd have at least heard something about it, but no. Funny indeed.

    1. I have daily conversations with counterparts in Detroit and Chicago. Coincidently, they never mention much about crime there either. Guess it's just more, bad press. http://heyjackass.com/

    2. Yeah, the far left has its propeganda, too. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and I know it well. They make a big deal about Chicago because Obama lived there, in order to promote gun control. Most of the city is relatively safe, just not the South Side near Halsted.

    Funny how the detailed facts presented in the article are completely ignored by the majority of commenters here.

    1. What's funnier is the fact that ANYONE could believe White Supremist websites! Those "detailed facts" you refer to are nothing more than "alternate facts" put forth by European fascists! But that's why Trump "loves poorly educated voters," isn't it?

    What bothers me is that things like this-- a report on distant conditions meant to induce fear in the viewer six thousand miles away, are posted, while there in America video clips of people screaming at their US Senator, "My husband is dying, and you want to take away his Obamacare! What kind of insurance do you have?" never get past the censor. The stuff that is really harming us gets sidelined.
