A European country has just figured out that they can’t take on all the supposed refugees from the Middle East, and they’re finally taking measures to shut down the migration flow into the West.
From the Washington Post:
When the small, crumpled body of 3-year-old Alan Kurdi washed up on the Aegean coast Sept. 2, Europe’s humanitarian superpower sprang into action.
Sweden’s prime minister headlined gala fundraisers, Swedish celebrities starred in telethons, and a country that prides itself on doing the right thing seemed to rally as one to embrace refugees fleeing for their lives.
But after taking in more asylum seekers per capita than any other nation in Europe, Sweden’s welcome mat now lies in tatters. Overwhelmed by the human tide of 2015, the center-left government is deploying extraordinary new border controls and slashing benefits in an unmistakable signal to refugees contemplating the long trek to Sweden in the new year: Stay out.
“We’re willing to do more than anyone else,” said Swedish Migration Minister Morgan Johansson. “But even we have our limits.”
Those limits can be readily seen in a tent camp where dozens of migrants are bedding down in the frigid Nordic winter and at the train station where many new arrivals are turned back within minutes of setting foot on Swedish soil.
Will other countries do the same? And what about us?
Isn’t it funny how liberals always want us to be more like Europe but they’re outraged that some are asking for exactly what Sweden is doing?
What do you think? Should we follow Sweden’s example and shut down immigration from the Middle East? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!!
