Many Muslim immigrants in the U.K., France, and Sweden live in Muslim ghettoes, and have not assimilated. Moreover, and of particular importance, children of the immigrants " the ones born and raised in European countries " are usually the most radical and anti-Western. It is worth recalling that the 9/11 terror attack on America was planned by Muslim immigrants living in Germany. Muhammad Atta, the leader, Ramzi bin al-Shibh, Ziad Jarrah, Said Bahaji, and Marwan al-Shehhi had each lived in Germany for eight years and Bahaji was born there.
There are three reasons that we cannot allow immigrants into the EU.
First, many of the children of these immigrants will not remember Assad or ISIS and will resent their likely inferior socioeconomic status and lack of full integration into European society. They will then cause havoc in Europe.
Second, the economic growth and unemployment rates of the EU countries including Germany are not robust enough to handle a vast number of newcomers. And as the British writer Janet Daly pointed out in the Telegraph, what about "the pressures on their hospitals and GPs" surgeries, and of shortages of housing and school places"?
Third, it is as certain as night follows day that Islamic State and other terror groups will place terrorists among the refugees coming into Europe.
As a result of the three arguments above, some European countries will be threatened by far-right political movements that will arise in opposition to the the threat to their national identity, values and economy.
Second of all, a lot of people nowadays are going from secondary (industry) to terciary(tourism, banks and such) job sectors. I know it sounds bad, but immigrants could easily replace them in their secondary-sector jobs. Also, I only took Germany as an example. There are hundreds of thousands of job opportunities for immigrants in Balcan countries, which our own people don't want to do. Again, I know it sounds bad, but this hiring model has not been tested yet, and we cannot know if it will be good or bad.
Third and final, some immigrants will definitely be terrorists. But as I said before, can this paranoia stop us from helping these people. Morale issues aside, I agree that our perception in terrorists' power is still pretty vague, and we cannot certainly know how many terrorists will infiltrate this way. But Germany (again, for example) still accepted a lot of immigrants, perfectly knowing the risks involved in doing so. Why? Because it has a strong military and police force, as well as all the prime targets of all these immigrants.
To conclude, most of these immigrants are now living on the borders between two countries, as some countries have closed them. At this point they can either return to their countries, which are in war, or the countries they are trying to get into will allow them to do so. What I'm trying to say, they have nothing to do but to exist right now. They are stuck in a stalemate and they will not return, as it is not in their interest to do so. This is why I offered a solution to this(letting them in), as they are currently blocking any form of borderline action(military, political, economical inter-European immigration).
As stated before, economies do not have the strength to create thousands of jobs. The population of a country is constantly cycling and those jobs that are vacated are filled by the childeren of the workers, as a new work force comes in. We know as a result of other immigration crisis that there are never enough jobs and that the economies need to be looked at.
Paranoia can and will stop us from stupidly accepting all immigrants at a breakneck speed. If we move too fast we risk accepting immigrants that have problems and are undercover terrorists.
To conclude these immigrants will pose a security risk, take our jobs and will grow up to be future problems. There is simple not the time nor the money to be accepting thousands of immigrants, and it is not worth the risk. Thank you for this wonderful debate.
