A large and well-known problems with american immigration policy is that no is not always a no. Tens of thousands of people in recent years have been refused their asylum application stops will still remain in Sweden and live here illegally, in a growing skuggsamhälle. Here is grown a deep alienation. Many working black in unsafe conditions. Some commit crimes, others become themselves victims.
But an equally large problem is that a yes is far from always will be a yes. During the past 15 years, 1.6 million people received residence permits in Sweden. Many have taken themselves into the Swedish society and is now contributing with knowledge, culture, language, and tax money. It is a great asset for Sweden.
Long-term unemployment, and lifelong dependence on benefits is only one dimension of the problem. Children who inherit their parents ' exclusion is in the long term, an even bigger problem.
It is worth to mention Mauricio Rojas, who for a long time has been a driving force in these matters, and now connects to the Research work. Sweden had 20 years ago, taken him more seriously, had this commission not been in the day.
The poor integration has become an absolutely crucial explanation to several of Sweden's most serious social problems. This is a major reason why many skolmisslyckanden, where every fifth student is allowed to leave the year without a qualifying score. Despite the fact that we know that their chances of subsequently getting a job is very small. Poor integration also affects välfärdssystemens economy, quality and availability. School, social and health services can not keep up. The country's municipalities warns on good grounds for this becoming increasingly worse.
Among others, is a clear resistance to gender equality, autonomy and individual freedom. It results in hedersförtryck that affect women and young girls and boys. Often with illegal control, in the worst cases, pure murder. When I was about ten years ago worked with these issues in the city of Stockholm, was the closest to the taboo. Today, they are no longer taboo, but even more difficult to solve.
The poor integration can be seen perhaps most clearly in the rough gängkriminaliteten, in the gangsterliknande, and sometimes family - or klanbaserade crime. It is on their keep it clean systemhotande and undermines the state's most fundamental role in society.
It now requires a holistic approach, not new projects and sparklers. No long-winded investigations that analyze the causes, but a concrete action plan for everything that needs to change now.
Then, in the 1990s, it was all about to quickly draw up proposals for the long-term to be able to face the deep economic crisis. Now it's about to take up reforms and legislation that breaks decades of half-baked integration policy.
the Government and the stödpartiernas 73-point programme does not pay these big issues more than scattered interest. It is an amazing bug. Therefore, we take the conservatives lead on this crucial issue.
It has long on the contrary been a fundamental concept that integration is a ”process from two directions”, where immigrants and natives can be integrated in a new multicultural society. The approach taken has been treacherous and wrong. Of course, affected the whole society of immigration, often positive, sometimes negative. But the policy must fully focus on those who come to Sweden should be allowed and expected to become a part of Swedish society.
another starting point is the strong link between migration policy and integration policy. Immigration to Sweden has for several decades been too high in relation to our country's ability to integrate people from completely different countries. It is not strange. It will have required a little, it will many it is required much. We have combined high immigration and little integration.
It cuts right through almost all policy areas. Already big problems with school, housing, social services and health care will be even greater if not integration will be radically much better.
If we fail to reverse the trend, we fail also with a lot of other things. Sweden will then be a poorer country, both economically and socially. More children will drop out of school and dragged into heavy crime. Many swedes are wary of the policy's ability to take hold of the issues and the community pulled apart. The famous Swedish trust – that we basically rely on each other and on our bodies – are being eroded. Such damage is difficult to repair.
the Conservatives announced before the election a comprehensive program to strengthen the integration: the Labour market must be reformed so that more people can take themselves from the contribution to their own work. The largest bidragsreformen on 40 years of work always pays off. The school must become both better and tougher in the vulnerable areas. The Swedish citizenship must be brought out. All must quickly learn Swedish. Migration policy should be tight. It is a necessity in order to cope with integration.
We shall turn every stone and take forward the action plan, which Sweden never has had, but as long as needed. We should draw lessons from countries that have succeeded better than we. And we will gather the wisest people and the best proposals from the Swedish debate.
the Commission will work concentrated during a year and to propose concrete and feasible reforms that parliament and the government can make a decision on. No theoretical mapping, but a practical commission that can change the future of Sweden.
the Commission will consist of both politicians and experts. It is worth to mention Mauricio Rojas, who for a long time has been a driving force in these matters, and now connects to the Research work. Sweden had 20 years ago, taken him more seriously, had this commission not been in the day.
Now is the time to go from words to action. We have solved big problems before. If we take hold of the situation so there are big prospects.
