  1. Sweden in ‘historic’ deal on immigration policy

    Sweden’s centre-right Alliance government and the Green Party have reached an agreement on changes to the country’s immigration policies specifically designed to diminish the influence of the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats.

    The four government parties, the Moderates, Christian Democrats, Centre Party, and Liberal Party (Folkpartiet) have forged a comprehensive framework agreement with the Greens which Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt called “historic”.

    “This lays the long-term groundwork for a humane, just, and orderly migration policy,” he said during a Thursday morning press conference.

    He added that the agreement means that Sweden has made a clear choice about where the country’s migration policies are heading.

  2. Now its a “migration policy,” not an immigration policy. This nomenclature points to whose perspective/pov it is taylored to…to the immigrants, not the citizens of Sweden…to foreign other’s interests. Not just a migration policy, but an orderly migration policy.

    Yes we can clearly see where the country’s orderly migration policy is heading. Colonization by foreigners.
