Swiss Voters Approve "Far-Right" Deportation Plan

by the Left Coast Rebel

It always puzzles me when I read a story from overseas where voters in a particular nation go against the perceived politically correct will of the powers that be.

This story involves that and the people of Switzerland making a statement against foreign born criminals living in their nation:

(DW-World) Swiss voters have approved a far-right initiative to automatically expel foreign residents convicted of serious crimes, according to poll results.

Swiss national broadcaster SF1 said 52.9 percent of voters backed the initiative in Sunday's referendum....

The initiative, which would apply to foreigners convicted of crimes like murder, rape or trafficking in drugs or people, has been criticized by human rights groups and legal experts, who said it could disregard international anti-discrimination treaties and the free movement of peoples under European Union law.

Are not a people free to expel foreign people in their own land convicted of crimes. I mean, come on. Am I to gather that these people are actually illegal aliens, too, ie. "foreigners"?

I imagine that the leftist groups protesting this also think that Arizona's common sense immigration law, SB 1070, was the height of inhumanity too.

  1. Okay, this is too bizarre. Dammit Tim, I was just about to blog on this. Will do so anyway tomorrow. No hat tip for you though. Since I had the idea first!

  2. Sorry, Eric, my brother is hours ahead of me and tipped me on this story, LOL

  3. They're system of democracy says they go! But in our republic, we are allowing opinions and arguments from foreign nations... Or am I disillusioned that in reality, we have an oligarchy?
