Sweden’s embrace of refugees isn’t working and the US should learn from their mistakes

 

Excellent article for anyone that is interested in the challenges of integrating a disenfranchised people into a culture and economy that they are not familiar with and are not prepared for.

Please read the article in the Source below but here are a few highlights:

The effects are palpable, starting with national security. An estimated 300 Swedish citizens with immigrant backgrounds have traveled to the Middle East to fight for Islamic State. Many are now returning to Sweden and are being welcomed back with open arms by our socialist government. In December 2010 we had our first suicide attack on Swedish soil, when an Islamic terrorist tried to blow up hundreds of civilians in central Stockholm while they were shopping for Christmas presents. Thankfully the bomber killed only himself.

The Costs of Mass Deportation

One of the more foolish statements of Mr. Cruz and Mr. Trump (the two least qualified candidates in the race) is their love of saying that they would deport anyone here illegally. I am sorry but I simply do not want to pay that much in taxes to do that and if their supporters could actually use a calculator, they wouldn’t want it either.

My gut is that Mr. Cruz and Mr. Trump would both renege on this campaign promise. Mr. Trump calls Mr. Cruz “Lying Ted” in this regard, Mr. Trump is correct but the bad news is that Lying Ted should call the Republican nomination current leader, Lying Donald. Thank goodness Mr. Kasich understands how to do math and has a reasonable agenda.
