Eric Holder: Citizenship Question On Census 'Threatens American Democracy'
In a move which no doubt has American immigration officials baffled, the Swiss are denying citizenship to Muslim after Muslim for failing to integrate into their society.
In this latest case, two Muslim girls were denied citizenship because they refused to swim in a pool with boys present.
From USA Today:
The girls, ages 12 and 14, who live in the northern city of Basel, had applied for Swiss citizenship several months ago, but their request was denied, Swiss media reported Tuesday."But Chris," you say, "I thought no one is allowed to deny anyone citizenship because it's racist, xenophobic, bigoted and discriminatory against LGBT, BBQ, & BLT peoples!"
Uh, yeah, it is, so what? They like their society the way it is and don't feel obligated to change it to suit random schmoes, even if they get called "racist xenophobes."
The article continues with other recent examples:
In April, members of an immigrant family in the Basel area were denied citizenship because they wore sweatpants around town and did not greet passersby -- a sure sign that they were not sufficiently assimilated, the naturalization board claimed.But Switzerland is supposed to be a melting pot like every other European country! Diversity is our strength! Just look at how well it's working out in Brazil!
Shame on these evil racists for trying to preserve their heritage!
In Switzerland, unlike in the United States and many other countries, integration into society is more important for naturalization than knowledge of national history or politics. Candidates for citizenship must prove that they are well assimilated in their communities and respect local customs and traditions.Well, will you look at that. The Swiss think their immigration laws should be used to benefit their own nation! The audacity of these people!
