Immigration Quotas …If Its Good Enough for the Swiss, Why is Immigration Quotas & Restricting Free Movement Across US-Mexican Border s Bad Thing for America?


Switzerland wants to protect its borders and regulate immigration. Imagine that, a country wants to regulate who comes in to their country and does not want to allow free movement across EU borders. Those racist Swiss.


Swiss and European leaders reacted warily on Monday to the narrow approval by Swiss voters of a proposal to limit the number of foreigners allowed to live and work in Switzerland.

A bare majority voted in a referendum on Sunday to cut immigration quotas and require that Swiss nationals be given priority in hiring. The result could have far-reaching implications for relations between Switzerland and the 28-member European Union, of which it is not a member.

Laurent Fabius, France’s foreign minister, said Monday that the European Union would have to reconsider its relationship with Switzerland.

“It is a vote that causes concern because it means that Switzerland wants to withdraw into itself,” Mr. Fabius told RTL radio.

Viviane Reding, vice president of the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, told the BBC that Switzerland could not “pick and choose” among its agreements with the bloc, adding, “it is a whole package they have signed up to.” She said that the Swiss government must now explain how it intends to apply the results of the referendum.

      Good for the Swiss. If they are being overrun by people from other countries taking jobs from their citizens, they did the right thing.

      Our own borders could be closed in less than a week if we had people in Washington that wanted to get it done. Troops on our Southern border to seal it until fencing could be installed and Beefed up Border Patrol on the Northern border.
