This is liberalism gone mad! Read and wonder. So this is what the minister is proposing.
Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and Migration Minister Tobias Billström have proposed that immigrants must demonstrate “appropriate housing” and a “steady means of support” before their relatives would be allowed to migrate to Sweden.
Pretty reasonable, I would have thought.
But no, this is what another newspaper opines:
Meanwhile, the editorial board at GP is more skeptical toward the suggestion, asserting that “the proposal has advantages, but it is far from clear that they outweigh the disadvantages.” GP asks the reader—and the civil servants who will be tasked with flushing out the proposal in detail—to put themselves in the position of being an immigrant in another country.“We can’t place tougher burdens on foreign residents in Sweden than what we would accept for Swedes overseas,” the paper writes. “We all ought to ask ourselves how long we are prepared to live apart from our children if the world was to fall apart and we were forced to seek protection in say, Kurdistan.”
I asked several Swedish colleagues here and none of them would even admit to be Swedish after reading that!
How bizarre, moral relativitism taken to the stupid level! No offence to Kurds who I am sure have a lovely state, but well, I am not sure that their immigration policies are the world standard.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
