For some reasons, people who immigrate to Western nations end up getting on welfare, where they stay for years upon years and drain the taxpayers. Well, that’s about to come to an end.
According to Breitbart News, a new civil rights act is going into effect that prevents those who’ve been living off the taxpayer’s dime from becoming citizens of the nation, although there is a catch – if they pay back every cent they received, they can then apply for citizenship. Previously, the welfare leeches could apply for citizenship as long as they weren’t collecting benefits when they submitted their application, but now if they’ve been on welfare at all in the three year prior, no citizenship for them.
The new regulations will make it impossible for asylum seekers and migrants who have lived off state handouts in the last three years to become citizens even if they have lived in Switzerland as permanent residents for the required time to make a citizenship application, Kronen Zeitung reports.
The previous law allowed migrants to apply for citizenship as long as they were not on state benefits at the time of their application.
Along with the welfare stipulation, the new act requires migrants to demonstrate a greater level of integration than before including making them prove they have a certain number of Swiss friends and acquaintances.
Sounds like a pretty common sense proposal, does it not? I mean, why would you want people in your country who are only going to be a drain on your society?
You wouldn’t, and that’s why many Swiss towns have been going out of their way to make the lives of so-called “refugees” as difficult as possible.
Various cantons and cities in Switzerland have attempted to push back against the tide of migrants by making it less appealing for them to come to the country. Late last year, the city of Zurich voted to dramatically cut benefits to failed asylum seekers who were in so-called “F-status” in which they cannot be deported.
However, what really sucks for the Swiss people is that their own leaders even admit that they only know the true identities of one out of every ten “migrants,” meaning their country could be loaded with terrorists. But at least now they’re taking away an incentive for them to go to the country in the first place.
America needs to follow suit.
