Swedish Prime Minister claims that the integration of migrants has failed
Sweden has failed to integrate the huge number of immigrants it has received in the last two decades, leading to parallel societies and gang violence, Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said on Thursday as she launched a series of initiatives to fight organized crime, Reuters reported.
Many Swedes were shocked earlier this month after more than 100 police officers were injured in violent riots. Violence erupted after a Swedish-Danish politician burned the Qur’an at a rally and tried to hold it in several immigrant-dominated neighborhoods.
Andersson blamed the criminals and said that both Islamism and right-wing extremism were allowed to develop in Sweden, in unusually honest and self-critical comments, writes Reuters.
"Segregation is allowed to go so far as to have parallel societies in Sweden. We live in the same country, but in completely different realities, ”Andersson told a news conference.
The number of people born abroad in Sweden has doubled to 2 million in the last two decades, or a fifth of the population. Social Democrats Magdalene Andersson has been in power 28 of the last 40 years, including the last eight.
Andersson said she wants to introduce local youth crime committees in which social services and police could co-operate. She also suggested tools to ensure that young people stay in schools and off the streets without parental consent.
“Integration was too weak at the same time as we had large immigration. “Society was too weak, resources for police and social services were too weak,” she said.
Sweden, which is holding general elections later this year, has radically tightened its immigration policy since receiving more people per capita during the 2015 migration crisis than any other EU country. It now has one of the bloc’s most restrictive policies.
The human rights organization Amnesty International is critical of Sweden’s tightening of policy, arguing that it causes human suffering and makes integration even more difficult for immigrants.
Regarding Sweden’s accession to NATO, Andersson said the referendum was a “bad idea”. “I don’t think that’s an appropriate question for a referendum,” the Social Democrat said.
“There is a lot of information on national security that is confidential, and such important issues cannot be decided in a referendum and they cannot be put on the table.”
The Swedish parliament is currently considering security policy, and a final report is expected in mid-May.

There are us here with long memories (and number of years):
Sweden already had the lowest birth rate in Europe in the late 1970s and mid-1980s.
Today, according to current statistics, Sweden has an above-average or even high birth rate for European terms !? Inge and Helga give birth to three, four children ??
And let’s not pretend to be naive:
When and in what to integrate a young Migrant ??
Everyone who follows, say, the Eurovision Song Contest, knows what I mean !?

Swedish law allows insults to be insulted with the security of the police. This is considered a “civilizational achievement.” However, there is no talk of it. It is not about that because there is no human right that would allow insulting one’s shrines. It is the spread of religious discrimination and hatred. a mistake in themselves and not in discriminated migrants.

It is true that integration fails when parallel societies and civilizations are created within the host state. In such circumstances, one should not prolong the agony, but deport criminals to where they came from because they endanger the survival of that state. But not all criminals are a priori, neither mobsters nor religious extremists, there are no generalizations, but the police have the best information about that.
