The Multiculturalism-mad establishment in Sweden has come up with an creative way to pay the ever-increasing costs of mass immigration. Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has translated a brief article on the topic, and includes this introductory note:
What do the Swedes do when they realize that there simply isn’t enough money in the budget to pay for the mass immigration of illiterate third-world Mohammedans to their country? Cut back on the number of immigrants that they let into Sweden?
Actually, no: they start redirecting funds from the humanitarian aid budget so they can keep up with the galloping costs.
We can only hope this won’t become a new trend in Europe

Sweden Democrats: it’s complete madness to finance mass immigration with humanitarian aid money
Mass Immigration: The Swedish Minister of Finance, Anders Borg, announced today on the radio program Ekot [“Echo” — Swedish Radio] that he intends to look into whether it is possible to finance rising immigration costs with funds set aside for the Swedish humanitarian aid budget. The government already redirects billions of SEK from this budget to help cover the cost of its immigration policies, and it has the unanimous support of all the opposition parties, except for the Sweden Democrats
In order to improve the quality of aid given to refugees, the Sweden Democrats have in their proposed alternative budget suggested that an additional SEK 1 billion be allocated to the UN agency UNHCR.
A brief comment from [SD leader] Jimmie Åkesson:
“To finance an irresponsible immigration policy with money set aside for humanitarian aid is highly peculiar, and to increase this diversion of funds is insane. If we really want to reach out to as many refugees as possible then we should help the refugees in their local areas. The money that we spend on looking after just one asylum seeker in Sweden could be used to look after dozens more through the UN system.
“It is also worth keeping in mind that according to an official statement made by UNICEF last week, the greatest threat, in addition to the hostilities in Syria is a the lack of financial resources. Today humanitarian aid to Syria is only 20 percent of what it should be.”
