Next step: Deportation

A new civil rights act has come into force in Switzerland that prevents residents who have been on welfare in the past three years from becoming citizens unless they pay back the money they received to the state.
The new regulations will make it impossible for asylum seekers and migrants who have lived off state handouts in the last three years to become citizens even if they have lived in Switzerland as permanent residents for the required time to make a citizenship application, Kronen Zeitung reports.

    There are some good ideas in there. If only we could convince OUR congress critters to do the same.

    And I thought the Grandfather Clause was slick…

  3. Perhaps central Europe is not as drunk as I thought?

    How many of them actually want to become citizens?

      Lots. That Swiss passport is gold for terrorists to move from one place to another. And as citizens the mussies can try to change the laws. Only citizens vote in Switzerland, not like California or New York.

    Switzerland is not “Euro-trash.” Never has been

    Why can’t this be done here?

    • JeremyR says:

      Needs to be done and expanded. Any welfare queen should lose the right to vote for the entire time they are on the dole, and for at least five years after.

    The Swiss got their start at greatness by repeatedly telling invaders to “FUCK OFF.”

    The whole William Tell thing with the crossbow was during one occupation by Germany and was over ‘weapons rights.’ Few years later the Swiss kicked the Krauts out, for good.

    Not a people to piss off. Shady deals and all, still one of the toughest and least liberal nations in Europe.

      Not to mention that EVERY household has a government supplied “assault weapon” and is required to participate in at least yearly practice with said weapon. Can you imagine the liberal heads exploding in the USA if that was the requirement here?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
