International Organization for Migration (IOM) caused a Twitter debate last week when it released a video saying, ““With 244 million people on the move, migration is inevitable, necessary, and desirable.”
The video acts as a form of emotional propaganda as it shows imagery of migrants paired with sympathetic language like “undocumented, discriminated, and forgotten.” The organization, which provides services and advice concerning migration, also associates migrants with terms like “grateful, skilled, and compassionate” in the video.
The U.N. continues to express similar sentiments.
“The rise in the number of international migrants reflects the increasing importance of international migration, which has become an integral part of our economies and societies. Well-managed migration brings important benefits to countries of origin and destination, as well as to migrants and their families,” said Wu Hongbo, U.N. under-secretary-general for economic and social affairs.
However, the IOM and U.N. both fail to acknowledge the correlation between mass migration and high crime rates.
“When looking at the statistics, it is clear that the effects of mass migration are not solely positive on developed nations, as migrants often increase crime and unemployment rates. Across the European Union, the unemployment rate of non-EU citizens remains 10 percent higher than that of citizens. Sweden, a self-described “humanitarian superpower,” accepted 163,000 asylum seekers in 2015. A year later, only 500 of these migrants had found work, the Local reports. The cost of accepting and taking care of these migrants was billions of dollars, according to the Financial Times. In the Netherlands, 90 percent of Syrian and Eritrean asylum seekers, the largest groups of migrants, remain dependent on social benefits.Almost none was employed after 18 months in the country, reports Wakker Nederland, a Dutch public broadcaster.In Germany, all non-Germans make up about 10 percent of the overall population of the country. And yet, they accounted for 30.5 percent of all crime suspects in 2016. Refugees officially only make up 2 percent of the German population, but accounted for 8.6 percent of all crime suspects,” writes WND.
With all of this in mind, the IOM still thinks the problem lies with how migrants are perceived.
“The international community must work together to change the actual migration narrative to something more positive, focusing on what migrants contribute to their host countries, as well as their countries of origin, which benefit hugely from the remittances they send home,” said William Lacy Swing, IOM Director General.
Swing also claims migrants will be needed in terms of labor.
“Societies are ageing in the North, while in the South, young populations are growing. The rise of anti-migrant sentiment is a cruel irony at a time when ageing societies need migration to provide much-needed labour,” said Swing.
Author’s note: The U.N. and its groups like IOM are unbelievably biased against Capitalism, Democracy, and in particular, America. Countries have the right to control their own borders and to maintain their own culture and provide for the safety and security of their own children. Groups like this don’t understand or even want to understand this. Americans have made it clear, they don’t appreciate being emotionally manipulated to accept more migrants. Hence, the Twitter uproar after IOM’s video post.
It’s not possible for these populations to be assimilated into European or American cultures. As Thomas Malthus said long ago, “Population expands to consume all available resources, checked by war, famine and disease.” The combined population of America and Europe is about 1.3 billion. It is not possible for these areas to support the 3 billion estimated to live on $2.50 per day or the more than 5 billion who live on less than $10 per day.
