Sweden on Lake Superior?
PowerLine keeps tabs on the Somali wave so boldly brought to the land of 10,000 lakes. they also remind us:
in October 2015 Governor Mark Dayton instructed “white, B-plus, Minnesota-born citizens” to suppress their qualms about immigrant resettlement in Minnesota. If they can’t, they should “find another state,” he advised.just like the elites and media in Sweden. That defensiveness and opacity is all I need to know about the supposed success of the immigration they've initiated.
Image drawn from inferred data in this article file by the Center for the American Experiment. Ms. Crockett notes:
DHS has been “crunching the numbers” for the last three months for the Strib, why was DHS playing hide-the-ball with the Center? And why isn’t this report available on the DHS website to the public?
We see the Somali's have bought not into the hard-working culture, but into the welfare culture... this by the way is an exacerbating problem in Sweden (and France): their immigrants have been ghetto-ized by perhaps well-meaning state employees, but it's lead to their segregation, and thereby dependency.
Now, to be sure, we're not seeing a crime wave from the Somalis like is reportedly on the move in Sweden, but this does address in part JK's assertion that immigration's net costs are positive. This article backs up what I've been trying to assert - perhaps w/o a great deal of clarity - that old fashioned immigration does show positive societal benefits (see all the Asians working), it's the new fangled 'pack'em in and pay them to stay' pushed by Progressives that needs to be exposed and expunged.
If a Trump-Session overreaction is what it takes, I say have at it! I'll paraphrase a meme I saw citing Albert Nock: I'm interested in what is right, not who is right.
This article from 2015 notes this trend has history, none of it good.
the effort is having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.Posted by nanobrewer at March 11, 2017 12:10 AM
