Europe imports immigrants in order to prop up the retirement pensions of aging native Europeans.
We all know this; it’s obvious that the European welfare state cannot be sustained much longer without a mass infusion of new blood. To the elites who craft immigration policy, it’s of no consequence that in practical terms “new blood” means welcoming millions of Muslims from the Third World who incubate radical jihad ideology and violent terrorism in their midst.
We all know this, but it’s not usually stated so clearly:
France: Attali Commission, More Immigrants for Growth
Favouring the issuing of visas in order to allow the arrival of more foreign workers: this is one of the solutions to revive the French economy, according to a report by the commission chaired by Jacques Attali, which will be presented to Sarkozy on January 23, 2008. The French president assigned a pool of 41 experts, French and foreign ones (among whom former Italian EU Commissioner Mario Monti) to elaborate the guidelines for economic revival, Il Sole 24 Ore reported. According to media reports, the guidelines include increasing the number of immigrants with professional qualification arriving in the country in order to satisfy the demand in the sectors suffering work force shortage, such as construction and catering. “France needs the immigration, otherwise all of our discussions on the funding of the pension system would not make any sense,” Attali declared.
