Sweden's New Instability

If the United States in 2015 had received the same proportion of asylum
seekers as Sweden, in relation to its population, the US would have taken in
5.2 million of them.

The survey covered the period 2011 to 2016 and concerned more than 10,000
reported crimes relating to sexual offenses.

That traditional Swedish bathhouses in Sweden today are associated with rape
and sexual abuse was something unthinkable before the migration crisis in
2015. Both the Boston Globe and alternative media should please stick to
statistics and facts.

Recently, The Boston Globe's Astead W. Herndon wrote an article criticizing
U.S. President Donald Trump's ways of gathering support for his statements
and proposals. While it is basically true that politicians should not only
rely only on the media, Herndon's understatement Sweden's problems is
dishonest at best.

If one mentions problems in Sweden relating to migration, it is important to
describe what is really happening. Sadly, Sweden's refugee policy has made
Sweden less secure. In 2015, Sweden received 163,000 asylum seekers. The
same year, the United States received about 70,000 asylum seekers. Sweden,
however, has a population of ten million, while the United States has
approximately 323 million. If the United States in 2015 had received the
same proportion of asylum seekers as Sweden, in relation to its population,
the US would have taken in 5.2 million. Would it have threatened U.S.
security to host 5.2 million new asylum seekers in one year? Probably. That
is what happened in Sweden.

The US already has a rigorous vetting process, but Sweden has a weak one --
only slowly improving. In addition, because many "unaccompanied refugee
children" lie about their age when they reach Sweden, the National Board of
Forensic Medicine ("Rättsmedicinalverket") has been instructed by the
government to do medical age-assessments. These are made at the request of
the Swedish Migration Agency ("Migrationsverket"), this, after the asylum
seekers' consent. The National Board of Forensic Medicine began performing
these age-assessments in March; reporting on their activities on September
4, they found that in 83% of cases, the investigated person was not a minor,
but 18 or older.

The problem of asylum seekers lying about their age is that these adults of
unknown backgrounds have been sent to primary schools and high schools with
children and placed in different homes with them. Sweden's liberal migration
policy has jeopardized the safety of Swedish children.

As a result of the migration crisis, since 2015 Sweden has been forced to
introduce border controls. This activity, along with deporting illegal
migrants and violent disputes in asylum accommodations, has claimed a large
part of the resources of the police. In June 2016, the Swedish Civil
Contingencies Agency, surveying fires at asylum accommodations, found that
only 11% of the fires were started from outside the asylum home. The
resource-crisis of the Swedish police has resulted in more municipalities
forced to hire private security companies. In spring 2017, Radio Sweden sent
a survey to Sweden's 290 municipalities. 200 responded, and of these, 140
stated that their security costs had increased, and of these, 35 responded
that their costs had increased directly because of the lack of police
officers.

In 2005, Sweden enacted a new law concerning sexual offenses, that
broadened, under Swedish law, what was considered rape. In 2013, this law
was extended even further to include even a passive response as a rape.

While the increase in the number of reported rapes should not be interpreted
as Sweden having a "rape epidemic," in June 2017, for example, Sweden's
public broadcasting television reported that in just a little over a year,
15 unaccompanied migrant boys from Afghanistan were convicted of gang-rapes
of other boys in Sweden. In a police report published in 2016, dealing with
sexual assaults, the police stated that:

"In cases where the crimes were committed by perpetrators in a larger group
in public places and in swimming pools, the perpetrators were mainly young
people seeking, or recently receiving, asylum in Sweden".

In the same report one can also read that:

"All investigations in Stockholm and Kalmar from 2014 and 2015 have been
closed down due to difficulties with identification or lack of evidence."

Another scary fact is that in 80% of the reported sexual assaults in the
traditional Swedish bathhouses where Swedes go during the harsh winters, the
offenders were of foreign origin and most lacked a Swedish national identity
number.

The survey covered the period 2011 to 2016 and concerned more than 10,000
reported crimes relating to sexual offenses.

Certainly, one should criticize articles that exaggerate how insecure it is
in Sweden, but it is equally wrong to minimize the extent to which unvetted
mass-immigration has created an insecure situation for women, especially at
bathhouses, swimming pools and gymnasiums.

That Sweden has not managed to handle migration properly, and that the
conditions for conflicts exist, is not something that alternative media or
Donald Trump have made up. Nearly one-fifth, or 18%, of Sweden's population
are now foreign-born. At the same time, unemployment in July 2017 among
Swedes born in Sweden was 3.9%, while unemployment among foreign-born Swedes
was 21.8%. This disparity creates conflicts within Sweden's civil society
that should not be neglected. The reason many foreigners do not get jobs in
Sweden is because often a person needs to be highly educated. Those who come
to Sweden through asylum immigration are simply not well-educated enough to
meet the demands of its labor market. The question soon becomes: how much
asylum immigration can Sweden manage before spending gets too big and social
problems become too heavy?

The Boston Globe is making a mistake when it minimizes the enormous crisis
through which Sweden is going.

That traditional Swedish bathhouses in Sweden today are associated with rape
and sexual abuse was something unthinkable before the migration crisis began
in 2015. Both the Boston Globe and alternative media should please stick to
statistics and facts.

They're talking about jews. The cock-suckers get expelled from one
place and then infest another. Corruption and perversion follow
wherever they go.
