Rape, Murder Unraveling Swedish Multiculturalism
STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- The Swedes are discovering that perhaps wide-open immigration is not all that it's cracked up to be. The migrant situation in Sweden continues to melt down amidst sexual attacks, murder, and official cover-ups.
With amazing speed, the Swedish establishment's dream of creating a multicultural society has been unraveling almost daily.
Sweden has been forced to tighten its border and plans to deport 80,000 asylum seekers, although the Interior Ministry doesn't like the word "deport."
"We're not planning to deport anyone, but we're planning that those people that don't get their asylum approved should return to their country of origin," Swedish Interior Minister Anders Ygeman said.
Many Swedes have turned against the nation's refugee program after 5,000 crimes and incidents at asylum centers since October, including the murder last week of a 22-year-old relief worker.
The cover-up both by Swedish police and the media of sexual assaults by migrant males against girls at a summer music festival last year has also served as a wake-up call.
Many Swedes are angry. They realize they were lied to and some are asking themselves what else hasn't the government and media been telling them.
"Immigrants are committing the majority of violent crime," Swedish economist Tino Sanandagi told CBN News. "We've reached that point. This is not reported and in fact the media will say this is a myth and if you believe this you're a racist."
Some Swedes feel the government has placed the welfare of foreign refugees above the safety of its citizens, especially Swedish women.
"I feel threatened because if I walk outside at night, it can happen to me too," one woman said.
On Sunday, Greek authorities arrested two men with Swedish passports on their way to join the Islamic State.
Meanwhile, poll numbers for the ruling Social Democrats are the lowest in nearly 50 years and the prime minister will be investigated by a parliamentary committee for his conduct last year during the refugee crisis.
