Swedish PM: ‘Massive Immigration Just Doesn’t Work’

author Published by Chris Pierce

Ulf Kristersson, the Prime Minister of Sweden, recently acknowledged that “massive immigration just doesn’t work” as he announced changes to the country’s border control policy that would make it the strictest in the European Union.

The revelationary comments were made on the National Day of Sweden, where the PM added that it was far too easy for migrants who can’t even speak Swedish to obtain citizenship.

PM Kristersson wrote,

Let me be clear: Massive immigration and poor integration just doesn’t work. That is why we are now changing Sweden’s migration policy and making it the strictest in the EU.

A ‘no’ to asylum means ‘no’ and you have to leave the country. That should be obvious, but it’s not. Equally important, a ‘yes’ should mean that you really get involved in Swedish society.

Kristersson argued citizenship was not just about obtaining a passport and should be a “social contract and that social contract contains both rights and obligations.

Kristersson, leader of the center-right Swedish Moderate Party, said new measures would be introduced to ensure migrants had not committed crimes in their home countries and tests to ensure they respect Swedish culture, heritage, language, and national identity.

He added that until now, “there has been absolutely no expectation that anyone who comes to Sweden will really learn our language,” which is the “glue that binds us together.”

Summit News reports,

The measures are being introduced thanks to political lobbying from the Sweden Democrats party, which is now the second-largest party in the Riksdag and is keeping Kristersson in power via a confidence and supply agreement.”

Even Kristersson’s predecessor, left-winger Magdalena Andersson, vowed to abolish ethnic ghettos, asserting that she didn’t want to see the emergence of “Somali-towns” in the Scandinavian country.

For reference, having been one of the safest countries in Europe 20 years ago before mass uncontrolled immigration, Sweden is now the continent’s second most dangerous in terms of gun crime, second only to Croatia. In 2021, Germany’s Bild newspaper ran the headline: ‘Sweden is the most dangerous country in Europe.’

The consequences of uncontrolled mass immigration have been so dire that Ukrainian refugees fleeing a legitimate war expressed the desire to avoid being sent to Sweden, stating it was too unsafe.
