Finland Rethinking Immigration Needs

Astrid Thors, Finland’s Minister of Immigration, believes there are immigrant needs that must be addressed. Her nation, most probably for the first time in its history, is witnessing a large scale immigration of people from Africa and other parts of the world. She believes there are gaps in services provided immigrants. Immigrants require more information about Finland as a nation and its culture, and the issue of language remains significant in determining success as an immigrant. Finland’s Constitution makes Finnish and Swedish the two national languages because of their historical development.

Minister Thors points out Finnish law does not make immigrants eligible for state supplied education or provide teaching students from the same ethnic group, there must be mixed groups for education. She has received numerous complaints from immigrants about their inability to obtain language education. She expressed concern that Finland has the highest level of unemployed immigrants of any EU nation.

    Research clearly shows that as diversity goes up trust and so-operativeness go down. Finland should resist immigration from populations that are not European.

    In the modern world, immigration is a fact of life.

    Murder is a fact of life, and we can work to mitigate it, unless we have we have a religious commitment to its existence.

    Does Finland really need Somalis?

    MOGADISHU, SOMALIA — A 13-year-old girl who said she had been raped was stoned to death in Somalia after being accused of adultery by Islamic militants, a human rights group said.

    Dozens of men stoned Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow to death Oct. 27 in a stadium packed with 1,000 spectators in the southern port city of Kismayo, Amnesty International and Somali media reported, citing witnesses. The Islamic militia in charge of Kismayo had accused her of adultery after she reported that three men had raped her, the rights group said.” from the Los Angeles TIMES

    The Somalians who are escaping to Finland hate the actions of those who stoned the girl. Why blame the victim for actions of the oppressor?

    The victim is Finnish culture.
