I’ll have to give the Europeans welcoming refugees into their own homes credit for doing much more than just talking the talk.
Plus, they bear the costs when it backfires. And trust me, that’s been happening quite frequently. As Breitbart reported on a just a few of the recent cases in Sweden:
An Eritrean migrant in Sweden, posing as a “child refugee.” has been found guilty of molesting a 10-year-old girl after her family agreed to house him.
He was given just ten hours’ therapy and a fine, and will be allowed to stay in the country.
It was also reported today that another migrant in Sweden, a 42-year-old Syrian, had abused his position as a child minder and sexually assaulted a 4-year-old in his care.The mother of the first victim, from Skåne Höör in southern Sweden, had “opened her heart” to two “child refugees” last summer, and brought them into her home alongside her two adult children and the 10-year-old.
Consider them lucky. Last year, liberal publications gushed over a liberal South African family who welcomed in over a hundred refugees onto their farm. I’ll let the two headlines below speak for themselves on how that went:
