Swedish Columnist: Sweden an Example of How Not to Handle Immigrants

A newspaper columnist for the British conservative magazine Spectator in
September of 2016 wrote how Sweden was an example of how not to handle
immigrants, an article of particular interest in light of President
Donald Trump’s critical comments on Sweden during a Florida rally on
Saturday night.

Trump in his speech referenced "what's happening last night in Sweden"
at his rally, a comment criticized by many, but later cleared up by a
White House spokeswoman as Trump "talking about rising crime and recent
incidents in general and not referring to a specific incident."

Trump on Twitter said he was referring to a story broadcast on Fox News
concerning immigrants and Sweden.

In the Spectator, the columnist Tove Lifvendahl wrote that no one was
better than Sweden when it comes "to offering shelter."

"But when it comes to integrating those we take in (or finding the extra
housing, schools and healthcare needed for them), we don’t do so well,"
she said.

Problems have been rising in Sweden since the influx of immigrants
according to news reports. In 2015, Sweden grew by 103,662 people, a
record mainly due to immigration. The Spectator column cited two
incidents where children were killed, one in September and one the year
before, as a result of gang violence. An 8-year-old boy was caught up in
a grenade attack and a 4-year-old girl was killed by a car bomb. 

The cost of accommodating child refugees, wrote the author, "is
enormous: £160 per child per day. That could be money well spent, if it

Trump has been hawkish on national security since taking office one
month ago and continued that conversation on Saturday. 

"We've got to keep our country safe," he said. "You look at what's
happening in Germany. You look at what's happening last night in Sweden.
Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers.
They're having problems like they never thought possible. You look at
what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the
world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris
