It takes a nation to protect the nation
Not All Immigration Is Good.
Some immigrant groups contribute to society while others contribute mostly to prison populations and as welfare clients. Countries that were once stable, prosperous and ethnically homogeneous have been flooded with aliens that are mostly culturally incompatible and that have higher birth rates. In places like Sweden around 50% of immigrants of Middle-Eastern or African descent are unemployed and living on welfare, compared to 7% in the native population, and the proportion of foreigners in prison is 5 times their proportion in the population of the country.
Immigrants from neighboring countries can be easily integrated and absorbed, or return to their own countries, but foreigners, immigrants and refugees, from incompatible cultures do not integrate and contribute to the common good. And they mostly do not desire to return to their country of origin. They also retain their own language, culture and traditions, and their attitude to law.
The intellectuals, journalists, politicians and academics dream up fanciful concepts such as that “we are all descendants of immigrants”; something that is patently not true. The first Europeans that arrived in America were invaders not immigrants. The Muslims that enter Europe now in such large numbers are also invaders and not immigrants. They make no secret that their intention is to take over, as their religion requires that they do.
In most countries around the world the populations are not immigrants their forefathers have been living there for thousands of years. Moving to a country does not automatically give you the same rights as the people that live there, you are a guest and it is up to the host to decide if you are to are allowed to stay or not. It is not a human right to live anywhere that you choose.
“Open borders”, is another fanciful, damaging and dangerous concept, based on the idealistic concept of universal equality- that we are all equal and that all cultures are equal. The problem is that we are not all alike or even think alike. Open borders results in; an increase in poverty and crime, a lowering of standards, confusion and ethnic conflict.
We may all be citizens of the world but first and foremost we are citizens of our native country and a product of the dominating culture in that country. The differences in cultures and mentalities make it very unwise to encourage unrestricted immigration and to relax or abolish border controls. Criminals have no respect for cultures and some cultures have no respect for other cultures. Multiculturalism simply does not work.
If the migration trend continues Sweden will no longer be Sweden, America no longer America and Britain no longer Britain, countries as we know them will cease to exist. Which is all very well if you believe in; one world, one race, one culture. Perhaps a future possibility, but suddenly opening borders and abolishing nations will not function, this would have to be something that evolved slowly and carefully. As it is now most are satisfied with their own nation and culture.
It is only natural that people in poor countries want to migrate to rich countries, but this is not a solution, it only damages developed countries. The answer is to reduce poverty, and it is essential that global population growth is reduced, perhaps by compulsory contraception. The poor countries can never stabilize as long as population growth outstrips development.
If the poor that migrate to developed countries do not immediately become wealthy, they become consumed with envy and hatred, blame discrimination, and only want to destroy what they cannot have.
