I understand the points. Most of Central Europe and Northern Europe have too soft immigrant laws. Many immigrants are just using the open borders in
their favour, They get EU citizenship at a country where it is easy and then move to countries with stricter laws, but better life quality.
Here luckily yet there is not problem with immigrants, although I´m afraid when the country becomes richer problems will rise.
I personally see the problems in education, not the culture the immigrants are bringing in. Most of them have come very poor areas with nearly no
opportunites to get ahead in life. They just want to realise their "American Dream" in Sweden, they just want opportunities. Most are hard-workers,
but unfortunately their education is low, so they get low-paying jobs in poorer areas. They have not much time for their children nor can they often
can be a good example due to lower education. They can not teach their kids well. Their children have to pretty much raise themselves alone, growing
up with other kids from similar families. Similar people stick together more. Due to parents not being able to help much, they often fall behind in
education. All that plays much role. Of course that is not the same for everybody, just on average that is how it is happening. Poverty and uneducated
parents can often play much role in the development of the youth
Although the culture can also play some part still, as some do not accept the local culture fully and push their culture inside of it - that also
causes friction between locals and them. In my personal opinion, the culture of another nation moved in should never be part of native culture.
Traditions exist and they should not be changed due to new people moving in with other traditions. The cultures of immigrants should be accepted.
Anybody can do what they want to at home or with friends, but they should not push it on others, as it is often done.
Just a comment to OP.
The real reason is not the unemployedness. All of it got started because of a mentally ill person being killed when he was considered a threat to
police. Had a hostage and wanted to attack the police with machete. There were different socioeconomic and demographic tensions before too, so this
was just the trigger and due to the police The questionable acts of the police officers during the riots (racist comments) only added fuel to the
Although unemployedness is one part of it still+ there are other demographic reasons..
