Switzerland: No citizenship for refugees and welfare recipients until money is repaid

Although not part of the European Union, Switzerland partakes in “resettling” Syrian refugees. In 2016, the Swiss government announced they would take 3,000 asylum seekers from the war-torn country, as well as resettle up to 50,000 asylum seekers who had crossed the border into Switzerland, mostly from Italy.

Unlike the other European countries and the United States, however, Switzerland isn’t stupid in being charitable.

Joseph Curl reports for the Daily Wire, Jan. 10, 2018, that Switzerland, where the average annual GDP per capita is nearly $80,000, recently enacted a new  law that prevents residents who receive welfare benefits from becoming citizens until they pay back the money they took.

The new regulations that took effect January 1 specify that:

  1. Asylum seekers and refugees who received handouts in the previous three years can’t become permanent residents — and thus, on the road to becoming full citizens — without first paying back the government.
  2. Refugees must prove they are making efforts to integrate into society in order to win citizenship by showing they have “cultivated contacts” with a number of Swiss people.
  3. There are also new language requirements, which vary depending on the canton they live in.

What Switzerland is doing is tough love.

Being charitable doesn’t mean one has to be a sap, a doormat. Nor should an open door policy to refugees and migrants be only one-way, where the host country gives and gives, but receives little or nothing in return. Human nature  being what it is, such a policy simply leads to the welfare-recipient feeling “entitled” and even contemptuous of the giver. Refugees and migrants have a responsibility to repay charity with hard work and a willingness to assimilate to become responsible citizens.

Why can’t the U.S. be more like Switzerland?

  3. Instead of bringing these people into every other country, how about they stay in their country and the rest of world can support them in making positive changes in their country. Reality is these people are very aggressive, demanding and abusive and are completely capable of overturning their corrupt government. If they truly don’t want what they have, then they are more capable of doing this than we are. Tell them to just do it. This is absolutely ridiculous, and I believe this refugee crisis is fake and has been made up by the global elites. They are using this totally disfunctional, destructive people in order to take down the world so the elites can bring in their one world of evilness and mankinds complete annihilation into death and hell (socialism/communism). Socialism/communism creates welfare state of consciousness people and a society that becomes the elites’ robotic slaves. Everyone must see the reality and stand up for themselves and say “NO MORE – WE’VE HAD ENOUGH!” The global elites are completely insane! Wake up world-get out of the matrix!

    • M, This is a real war of good vs evil, God vs satan. Satan plans on taking as many to hell as he possibly can. And because satan hates God he wants to destroy everything and anything God created. Satan knows his time is very short now and is in a hurry up mode. God is using islamics for punishment to people to turn back to God. We must show who’s side we stand for. God will fight our enemies for us but the people must turn back to God first.

    • So, “M” I’m with you….I can’t figure out why we have to have every poor, uneducated Tom, Dick and Harry come HERE and use our welfare “system” as well as all our supportive social supports…and free schooling for their kids, free medical care….housing, after school care, free lunch, free breakfast (do any of you KNOW tht this means…ALL YEAR LONG…EVEN WHEN SCHOOL IS NOT IN SESSION?….the law says each district HAS to supply these free meals on the same schedule as tho’ school was in session….all breaks…T-giving, Winter/New Year’s….MLK….President’s Days…..Spring break…and ALL SUMMER break…..) I’d MUCH RATHER let these people remain in theit OWN countries, & designate a portion of our ALREADY yearly aid to them as “feeding/medical/educational portions.” Why can’t they BUILD UP THEIR OWN COUNTRIES instead of coming here to grift? They NEVER go back to their “own” countries and “do the right thing”…they never return the “favor” internationally…..and so, we end up with centuries of unbroken streams of poor, broken, uneducated “migrants” from the same countries, over and over and over again….

    • I fully agree. These invaders fear for their lives, but leave the women and children there. There are enough of them to take their countries back. Some come from places that aren’t war torn, it is about free goods from others. The global elites are using the invaders to do their dirty work.

  6. Thirty seven years ago, I had a high school friend move to Switzerland. She was anti-vaxxer too. I am embarrassed to say, but we all thought she was a “little off”. Now? I am wondering where she got her crystal ball.

  7. The pictures and videos I see of ‘Refugees’ are mainly men. Cowardly and craven specimens who desert their women, children and elderly for self serving purposes. This ‘fleeing’ is too highly organized to be anything but an attempt at covert invasion, preying upon the lax, foolish and ignorant policies of leftist regimes. It will not end well for any country in Europe.

    • Exactly, why should civilized countries around the world even be forced to take in even one invader. It has been proven very expensive in life and goods. Make them stay in their own country and demand changes.
      I say no country take in another one.

    • It seems to me that Switzerland has been supplanted in the money laundering arena by many Caribbean laundries. I know that they have an armed population (including women) and it would not be wise for these aspiring Somalis to get jiggy there.

      As far as America goes, we have laws, we need to enforce them. These recent attempts to install a different system for vagrants is unacceptable. Any state that does that should be stripped of its chief executive and any city or other locality should suffer a similar fate. They can rot in jail until they drill far enough down through the parasite community to find a loyal official. Any disloyal ones found in the search should join their comrades in prison.

      It’s long past time for people to decide to live in a lawful place or to let Soros and his Maoist bosses take control.

  14. Do they have cargo planes and parachutes waiting on the runway to return any non-compliants to their home Country? That should ALWAYS be held over them as their alternative. (Unless the Swiss Government should choose to go one step beyond and return ’em stacked like firewood on pallets…)

  19. The comments indicate that some still think that “countries” exist. Those in the EU are not in charge of their own sovereignty. “Their” decisions are made for them in Brussels by unelected “officials”. They are “allowed” to pay for those decisions and suffer the consequences.

    Unless they leave the EU it will only get worse. This is what being a “globalist” is all about. The Jews say “we want to import crazy Islamists and Somalis” and they say “sure, the gate is wide open”. At the end of the day their cultures are destroyed and they join the herd more docile than ever.

    As “Goldbu” (above) points out, they don’t want citizenship. What? EU citizenship? The Swiss can’t speak for Brussels. Once the herd is subdued they’ll start the culling. Depending on whether their new cultural assets are more easily manage will determine their future fate.

  20. So….wait a minute….Swiss immigrants fr Syria, or elsewhere—–they have to pay BACK welfare given them b/f they can apply to citizenship? This necessarily denotes these “immigrants” will learn the language, learn or already have a trade (AND BECOME EMPLOYED AT SOME POINT IN THAT TRADE—so as to earn enough to PAY BACK the Swiss gov’t), that they/their children will assimilate (does NOT mean to give up their “culture” but DOES mean they will NOT expect Swiss gov’t & Swiss ed. system to change to CATER to them……that THEY will make a successful effort to attain comfort & use of the SWISS culture….that what they do in their own home/religious observances does NOT require the tax suppport of Swiss citizenry……..) RACISTS!!!!~!!!!! (Sarc). I will inject here: USA USED to have a policy aimed at a similar outcome….just not so stated. Through Ellis Island, you had to be disease free, of sound mind, prove you had a place to go…a sponsor (to PAY your bills if you failed to support yourself, ie.. Americans were NOT liable for your support…..) and a JOB waiting……

    I just want to muddy the waters here a little…..I “ran away to art” but, still am an historian/occassional history teacher/author/text editor…..My German-speaking Swiss ancestors, for instance, came to Pennsylvania, to escape the barbarity of the THEN Swiss Cantons….. where Anabaptists… Protestants….were jailed, had their tongues cut out….property confiscated, all sorts of barbarity…..I keep wondering why, by comparison…none of the history of Switzerland comes up during these recent times? If the USA had had this background in history—and THEN put forth these sorts of requirements for refugees and “immigrants”…..our whole “history ” of slavery/oppression/evil intentions/racial discrimination/possible religious discrimination and on and on ad nauseum, would be paraded on the daily news, nationally, ….. NOT A PEEP about the Swiss history of “supression.” I know that they, admirably, struggled to remain neutral in WWII…and accepted many, many escaped Jews from Europe, esp. from Denmark…but the USA has done tons and tons of admirable things through the centuries to protect those whom can not protect themselves……but to NO AVAIL as far as opinion goes…here and abroad…..

    Just IMO, an aside….The world would have LOVED to see the limp “Obama Apology Tour” continue ad infinitem. NOT GONNA HAPPEN with Trump 🙂
