Sweden is about to become a big nation. The number of people has surpassed 9.5 millions. It grew by 500 000 within seven years. Of these, almost 400 000 are owed to immigration, espepcially of somalis, afghans and iraqis.
The demographic explosion continues. That is, a new swedish court verdict means that immigration and family reunions will be facilitated significantly. So far, authorities could reject foreigners without personal papers. But the new verdict prohibits this, because it can be difficult for people in chaotic countries to get documentation.
Those interested in asylum often first send unaccompanied children to Sweden. If they are below 18, they are eligible for an appartment at an institution and a new swedish existence. Authorities try to sort out frauds, who in reality maybe are 18 to 20 and ought to be sent back, but determing their ages is difficult without any papers. The swedes have to believe the stories told by the young refugees. Trust is better than control.
Provisioning of these young people at the institutions costs up to 5 000 crowns per day [ http://www.xe.com/ucc/ ]. The municipalities get their expenses reimbursed by the government, but cannot say no to receiving the ‘children’.
The next step is that these big children’s relatives in fx Somalia follow after, in order to achieve family reunion in Sweden. Such family reunions are expected to rise to more than 15 000 per year, which brings the total annual number to between 50 000 and 60 000 people.
The swedish taxpayers’ expense to their many new fellow countrymen from the warm countries swells dramatically. Simply food, accomodation, administration of their cases during the period before they get asylum reaches eight billion danish crowns in 2012. The generous swedish social state’s benefits and leave regulations for families are expensive in themselves, because they were not intended for home-staying asylum seekers with many children.
Total influx of asylum seekers is expected to amount to about 90 000 people per year. Predictions are being changed all of the time, because the rumour is going around in fx Somalia and Afghanistan that it has become easy to become a swede. It is not even necessary to work, which half of those that get asylum don’t do.
What is incomprehensible is that the formidable immigration of people from the world’s far regions hasn’t led to any swedish debate worth mentioning. Among politicians, it is considered to be racist and inappropriate to vent sorrow, let alone criticise Sweden’s fast metamorphosis into the world’s relatively biggest immigration country. After all, there is plenty of space in the vast forests.
Swedish media are likewise dominated by downtrodden, pious editors, who remove diligently from their papers, websites and radio/tv broadcats any criticism against the policy on refugees and its consequences.
Luckily, we don’t have it so in Denmark, where it is allowed to publicly discuss the reason in asylum policies. So how does it look like here?
Well, according to Danmarks Statistik, the population has grown with 163 000 from 2004 to 2012. We are now 5 561 000 danes. Of these, immigrants have a share of 445 000 in 2012, to which 140 000 offspring must be added. With regard to asylum seekers, we are not even close to the invasion of Sweden. In 2012, Flygtningenævnet [refugee commission] expects 5 000 asylum seekers, of which 800 from Somalia, who are the most rapidly growing nationality. However, Danmark has major problems to get rid of those seekers whose request for asylum was rejected. Each month, their number grows by 100 – and they need to be accomodated, while they wait to be either returned – or for tolerable conditions in their home countries…
Therefore, new danish asylum centres continue to be established. Recently, Juelsminde [ http://preview.tinyurl.com/78rmgvf ] citizens discovered that all of Hotel Juelsminde Strand near the Kattegat has been rented out to 134 asylum seekers from asian, middle eastern and african countries. The locals will see a lot of their new neighbours, because they will be tasked with leisure time activities, visiting school and work. Other centres will be placed on Langeland, at Ringsted, at Hillerød and on Lolland. Each month, a new one will be opened. Just 5 000 asylum seekers now live in such centres.
Also Denmark feels growing somali interest, and also this interest is due to a court verdict, i e one issued by the European Court of Human Rights. It told two somalis they were right that Britain was not allowed to expel them, although they were criminals – the cause being that living in Somalia is hazardous to one’s life. It has been like that for so many years, that Denmark today has 17 000 somalis, which are hard to integrate.
As a consequence of this verdict, somalis receive a new treatment of their requests, and some 200 have already got aslyum this year. The same is true for iranians and syrians, who cannot be sent home either to their violent dictatorship states.
However, attempts are made to return rejected afghans, but most of them resist strongly, so the process goes slowly.
So why do I write all this? Well, because I have the idea that – even if I myself cannot present the solution for Denmark’s problems with asylum seekers – it is useful to become aware of the numbers we are talking about – and what we presently do with them.
We preserve freedom of speech only by using it [also] on sensitive issues.
And then it is a distinct pleasure to showcase the mad situation in which the crazy, dumb swedes have positioned themselves. Have a nice sunday.
