In September 2013, the Swedish government generously offered to welcome all refugees from Syria — counted as being two million at that time.
Now the government is toting up the financial cost and the result is not pretty.
The New York Times included a dollar figure for the Swedish taxpayers’ cost a few months back:

Over in the medieval Vatican, the busybody Pope Francis has called upon Europe to accept more diverse refugees from the third world.
The Pope could have shown leadership by admitting a few dozen suffering souls to his diminutive city-state (a real country with ambassadors and a flag), but he has not. He is scheduled to meet [...]
Obama must be getting in the mood for his post-election mega-amnesty for millions. He recently used his royal pen to broaden the refugee program to include poor people from Central America. Naturally, the people who live there will assume that they are welcome to come to the US any which way they can.
Below, “unaccompanied” toddlers [...]
What a nice surprise to see Ann Corcoran of RefugeeResettlementWatch being interviewed by the ever-curious Ginni Thomas at the DailyCaller.com. The title of the piece is tied to Labor Day, but the discussion is really about the refugee system as a whole and how shielded it is from any oversight from the American people.
Watch the [...]
You know the drill: as soon as Allah’s armies displace thousands from their homes in some Islamistan, the Washington appropriators swing in to action to borrow billions to assist tribes that hate America. The lawmakers are so well trained that they don’t even need urging from the members of the Refugee Industrial Complex.
Furthermore, the Republicans [...]
Here’s a fascinating video from the informative IslamVersusEurope blog showing concerned Germans rejecting the government’s sudden announcement that a number of asylum seekers would be jammed into their apartment building. The video includes a tour showing small rooms filled with beds like a barracks, with 12 refugees using one bathroom. The guide announces, “This year we [...]
A bad refugee kid gone wrong has reappeared, after pleading guilty as a 17-year-old to the murder of Mary Bethell (pictured), 47, a substance-abuse counselor in Aurora, Illinois, three years earlier. Now Garang Deng, formerly of Sudan, regrets confessing to the murder and wants a new trial. It was a long strange trip getting to [...]
On Tuesday, I blogged about the explosive numbers of Syrian refugees — now two million — after several years of war but before General Obama’s military strikes. Surely more chaos in the region will cause even more people to flee the danger, and become refugees. One might reasonably fear an Obama decision to admit kazillions [...]
Does anyone think Obama’s meddling in Syria won’t end up with his admitting many thousands of suffering victims of the cruel dictator Assad? After all, the mission is a humanitarian one, we little citizens are told. No attentive adult believes this President would go to war to defend American security interests, so the do-gooder explanation [...]
Our northern neighbor shows that do-gooder aspects of immigration needn’t be masochistic self-flagellation for the receiving country. By contrast, the United States of Obama is currently doing a doormat imitation by its reaction to a new invasion gimmick of demanding asylum using just the right complaint phrase, namely that the pesticans have a “fear of [...]
It’s not enough for Obama & Co. that they may be on the brink of importing a mass population of future Democrats (i.e. 46 million in 20 years according to the CBO), but a recent project is to welcome thousands of Syrians as refugees. What could possibly go wrong?
The refugee system has been a handy [...]
In its haste to welcome the victims of the world, Washington’s rubber-stamp refugee policy has taken in a rogue’s gallery of despicable war criminals. The latest, Beatrice Munyenyezi (pictured), a commander in Rwanda’s systematic mass murder of Tutsi tribal members, is quite a piece of work, but is by no means unique in depravity.
Some of [...]
