Sweden has received even more refugees than Denmark. Hence some "all is
wrong " statements from the US lately.
I see a bunch of high performers with skills and ambition that infuse the
nation with new blood, otherwise nativity in Sweden is way down like the
US, Italy, japan et al.
Problems are as always caused by criminals, some, (but no more than
proportional to social status, income, education etc ) are immigrants or
children to immigrants. Terrorists or wannabees, as always get way more
attention than they deserve.
We could probably ingest even more immigrants without that much more
problems. our criminal shootings are caused by criminals not by immigrants.
Most criminals are born in Sweden and a stop for refugees/immigrants would
not change much there.
