Denmark tightens border restrictions with migrant-heavy Sweden due to violence

The never-ending increase in migrant-linked crime across Sweden, one of the most pro-migrant countries on the globe, suggests that President Donald Trump spoke truthfully when he warned two years ago of the consequences of unrestricted immigration.

The violence has grown so severe that this week Sweden’s southern neighbor, Denmark, tightened border restrictions around its capital city of Copenhagen, which borders the migrant-heavy Swedish town of Malmö.

“Denmark will temporarily reinstate border controls with Sweden and step up police work along the border after a series of violent crimes and explosions around Copenhagen that Danish authorities say were carried out by perpetrators from Sweden,” the Associated Press confirmed Monday.

“The checks, which start Tuesday for six months, will take place at the Oresund Bridge between Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö, and at ferry ports. Lene Frank of Denmark’s National Police said there will be both random and periodic checks of people crossing the border and officers will focus ‘particularly on cross-border crime involving explosives, weapons and drugs.'”

Since February, Copenhagen has experienced 13 explosions and a double murder, all of them reportedly linked to perpetrators who crossed over from Sweden.

The situation in Sweden has been more grim:

Last week even The Guardian, a left-wing British paper, was forced to admit that the number of bombings in the migrant-friendly nation has reached “unprecedented levels.”

“Sweden’s national bomb squad has been called out to 30 blasts in the past two months and 100 so far this year, more than twice the number in the same period in 2018, as concern grows about rising levels of violence by criminal gangs,” the outlet conceded.

What the paper refused to admit was that these criminal gangs are comprised of migrants and “immigrants.”

“Most of the shooters and victims are unemployed young men with immigrant backgrounds, under 30 years of age, living in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and often without a high school diploma,” The Local noted in a profile over the summer.

They’re among the hundreds of thousands of migrants whom the country has welcomed into its fold with open arms. And it just so happens that those Swedish cities with the highest levels of these migrants tend to boast the most acts of violence.

Take Malmö. A third of its residents were reportedly “born abroad,” though not from the same country.

“[T]he city is home to people from more than 180 different countries. These newcomers have helped transform the city,” The Local pointed out.

What happens when you throw thousands of people with wildly different cultures and beliefs together in a small space? The evidence suggests you get a powder keg.

Speaking in defense of his travel ban in February of 2017, a month after his inauguration, the president warned of the powder kegs that unrestricted immigration invariably produces.

“You look at what’s happening. We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers [of refugees from Muslim-majority countries]. They’re having problems like they never thought possible,” he said.

“You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”

The partisan media responded at the time by, one, accusing Trump of peddling racist rhetoric, and two, denying the legitimacy of his arguments.

Yet two years later, the same trends he outlined then are still clearly visible. Moreover, the actual data proves it.

Last year, a German university released findings from a study that found that Europe’s never-ending influx of migrants was linked to “souring violence and crime in Germany,” as reported by Newsweek.

Meanwhile, gang-related gun murders, which Politico has admitted are “mainly a phenomenon among men with immigrant backgrounds,” have skyrocketed from just four percent in the early 1990s to a high of 40 percent in 2017.

“Shootings in the country have become so common that they don’t make top headlines anymore, unless they are spectacular or lead to fatalities,” a report Politico published last year reads. “News of attacks are quickly replaced with headlines about sports events and celebrities, as readers have become desensitized to the violence. A generation ago, bombings against the police and riots were extremely rare events. Today, reading about such incidents is considered part of daily life.”

One could argue that it’s “part and parcel” of living in a country that prioritizes the needs and concerns over migrants over those of its own people.

So is this, apparently:
