At least one European nation is taking a common-sense approach to immigration.
That would be Poland, a country that has just destroyed the narrative that it’s filled with stupid people.
The reality is that it’s being run by some of the smartest folks on that continent.
How do I know that? Because Poland is putting a moratorium on accepting migrants.
That’s how I know that.
Poland’s government says it is not prepared to accept any refugees following the deadly attacks in Brussels.
The ruling party, Law and Justice, is staunchly anti-migrant, but had previously indicated it would respect a commitment by the previous government to resettle around 7,000 refugees.
But government spokesman Rafal Bochenek indicated Wednesday that Prime Minister Beata Szydlo’s government is reversing that position.
He said that “at the moment Poland is not able to accept immigrants.”
He said the government fears that Europe is not able to eliminate security risks connected to the mass influx of migrants, adding: “for us the most important thing is the safety of Poles.”
That last line though.
Let’s repeat it, once more with feeling: “for us the most important thing is the safety of Poles.”
Sadly, that policy is the exception rather than rule in Europe.
Bottom line: no more Polac jokes, folks.
They’ve got it together in that country.
