Norway: Migrant Quality, Not Quantity

 

Norway's migration policy is similar to its attitude towards the European Union (EU). Though it has not joined the EU and remains outside the reach of most EU policy, many of its independent decisions — particularly regarding its relationship to European borders and migration policy management — have a uniquely European character.

 

The country's carefully regulated effort to allow only selected migrants to be admitted, together with its commitment to ensuring social equality for those who arrive, closely fits the model to which many other European countries (with varying degrees of success) aspire.

Go read the entire article as it is a good one on the subject. Norway is really part of the EU as it follows just about everything the EU does. It is not a far right country, and it is the far right that destroyes everything it touches.

Again - **bleep**hole is not a race. Hence, his comments were about dysfunctional nations, not race.


Immigration doesn't apply to countries.   No country is coming here.  Immigration applies to people.   

 

Discounting an entire population due to the specific country they were born is bigotry.   Discounting black populations while courting white ones is racist.   


Very well said NeryMom. Very factual, very accurate, very precise, very true. Truth is something that a few on the Right here struggle with.

The GOPerLords have ordered their elected flunkies to pretend it didn't happen. Their dupes will follow suit as they always do.

 

It happened - it's what happens when you elect a real-life Cartman POTUS.

You can try to paint this in any way that you choose, but trump's phrase was racist, crass, insulting, ignorant, and offensive. It was not presidential and responsible.

I agree with RK, a crudely worded statement acknowledging a true situation.

 

All of you guys that are outraged by such language have very short memories.

 

Where were you all when Bill Clinton was getting serviced by Monica in the oval office?

 

Such hypocrisy on the part of the progressive left and their faux outrage,...

 

So very FUNNY.

 

 

 

 


You use the word funny again. Last time you used it was to tell us that event caused by a another far right event caused injury and death to people. Why do you use that word here. We saw Trump express what he has practiced for years, and in Va. people were injured and died in an far right wing event. Are you using funny as before. There is nothing more sad that a far right President with mental problems tell all he hates blacks, and he wants to make America White again. Now a lot of his far right base agrees with that. What is your belief? We saw the audience who attended his Rally in N FL cheer such statement's as he asked people to vote for Roy Moore. Well the people in AL were saved from that fate by the black vote, along with thinking voters of all races. Shame we can not have the same thing happen in N. FL.
