New figures from Norway have proven yet again that – contrary to liberals’ claims – Third World immigration is hugely detrimental to Western countries’ economies.
According to Norway’s National Bureau of Statistics (SSB), even a significantly reduced level of Third World immigration will cost the country between 7–9 billion kroner (£743–955 million) a year from 2050 to 2100.
Conversely, immigration from Western (white) nations was found to benefit national finances. Immigrants from Western Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand will strengthen the economy by £850 million a year from 2050 to 2100, and migrants from Eastern European countries will add roughly £850 million in 2050, going down to £212 million a year by 2100.
The report is based on the premise of 5,000 immigrants entering Norway every year from each of the three areas (the West, Eastern Europe and the rest of the world); however, Norway lets in approximately 40,000 non-Western immigrants every year, 61 percent of total immigration, so the projected price tag will in reality be much higher.
The report claims that the disparity between white and non-white prosperity is due to lower employment rates among non-Western immigrants, lower taxable incomes and a greater dependency on state handouts.
Non-Western immigrants have some of the lowest employment levels in Norway. Bottom of the list are Somalians, who have an employment rate of just 31.5 percent. They are followed by Iraqis (42.5 percent) and Afghans (46 percent).
Third World immigrants also have some of the highest crime rates in Norway. 23.6 percent of the country’s approximately 19,000 Iraqi immigrants were sought for crimes from 2001–2004. The figure for immigrants from Somalia was 21.8 pecent, then 19.4 percent for Iranians and 18.1 percent for Moroccans. Those rates compare with just 6.1 percent for the rest of the population.
The pattern of the benefits and deficits of immigration is repeated elsewhere. In May 2011 it was revealed that non-Western immigrants cost Denmark £1.8 billion a year, while Western immigrants contribute £236 million to the economy.
Denmark’s immigration policies, which are some of the toughest in the EU, save the country roughly £609 million a year.
It would be interesting to see some corresponding figues for the UK. I wonder if our government would ever dare release them.
Confirmed again – Non-white immigration is bad for the economy
