sweden refugees welcome

By Joe Wilson

WASHINGTON – A trauma-care center in Sweden has been told to stop treating rape victims and focus instead on the growing refugee population.

The Crisis Trauma and Care Center in Stockholm, Sweden, was recently told by Stockholm County Council members that it should no longer cover raped women, who have been referred to the clinic for a long time. The clinic estimates that about 140 out of their 200 annual patients are rape victims.

The clinic’s focus now is supposed to be on refugees with mental-health issues stemming from torture, injury and war.

This is in response to the explosion of refugees into Sweden from war-torn countries in the Middle East and Asia. More than 25 percent of the Swedish population is of foreign origin, with a large immigration boom starting in 2009 and continuing through the first half of 2017.

There were more than 163,000 immigrants to Sweden in 2016 alone.

At the same time, there has been an uptick in rapes and sexual assaults by immigrants in recent years.

Gang rapes are on the rise, mostly committed by young immigrant men from predominantly Muslim countries, where it is not considered a crime to rape non-Muslim women.

In 2008 and 2009, two-thirds of Swedish rapists were foreign citizens. This problem of disproportionate rape by foreigners goes all the way back to the 1980s, but the recent increase in immigration has brought the problem to a head. This leads many to consider the change in focus of this clinic to be irresponsible.

The managers of the clinic are surprised at this decision, since they have always been open about the type of patients they treat, and did not expect the government to change their focus.

There is also concern that these raped women will not have access to the care that they need, since there is not another clinic in Stockholm that offers similar assistance.

“It’s absolutely crazy, there’s no one else in the county that can meet these women’s needs,” said Birgitta Sevefjord, a member of the Stockholm County Council.

America is headed down a suicidal path – but it’s a subtle invasion. Get all the details in Leo Hohmann’s brand new book “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” available now at the WND Superstore.
