The flow of refugees into Sweden has made that once idyllic country a mess. Police have set up "no-go zones" they deem too dangerous to go into, famed feminists have abandoned cities, where refugees flock, and the number of rapes has skyrocketed.
Now it turns out that neighboring Denmark is also suffering dramatic effect from the deluge of refugees into that country.
"A recent study conducted by Denmark’s Ministry of Finance concluded that in 2014, immigrants and their descendants cost Danish taxpayers at net loss of 28 billion Crowns per year," according to the National Economics Editorial. That's $42 billion.
"Furthermore, when Western immigrants were removed from the equation, the net cost rose to 33kr billion." That's nearly $50 billion.
In comparison, ethnic Danes contributed a surplus of $84 billion in 2014.
The report doesn't mince words, saying the data "shows conclusively that immigration has been an economic disaster for Denmark."
In short: 59% of the tax surplus collected from native Danes is spent on ethnic minorities, who are a massive drain on the system.
This would be roughly equivalent to America’s federal government spending $2.1 trillion per year on immigrants—a number so large it defies all logic and reason. ...
Consider that ethnic minorities, who are by definition immigrants to Denmark, represent 84% of all welfare recipients, as of 2016.
Denmark also spends inordinate sums on crime committed by immigrants—8 of the 9 ethnic groups most represented in Danish prisons are non-Western immigrant groups, specifically Islamic immigrants.
In fact, non-ethnic Danes are 2-3 times more likely to commit crimes than Danes, and if their crime profile is anything like that of immigrants in Sweden, then it is likely that the crimes they commit are also generally more serious in nature.
Likewise, healthcare costs for immigrants groups are proving significant. For example, 40% of patients in Denmark’s largest mental health hospital have immigrant backgrounds.
Why might this be? Because of the prevalence of consanguineous marriages among Islamic immigrants, which greatly increases the risk of mental health problems.
In fact, when accounting for population, Muslim immigrants to Denmark are over-represented in mental health facilities by 1,300%
Regardless of these ancillary statistics, the takeaway point is that non-Western immigration has not benefited Denmark economically, nor has immigration benefited Germany—despite what open-borders advocates claim.
Yeah, so maybe President Trump's plan to halt immigration from seven terrorist hotbeds isn't such a bad idea.
