As pointed out many, many, many times, the Swedish immigration policy does not only affect Sweden. It may eventually affect all of Europe, as Swedish citizens are free to travel wherever they like, whatever background they have. Your next Swedish neighbour, or 'tourist,' is therefore not necessarily named Göran and eats surströmming, but he has a Swedish passport. And that should worry you, considering the terrible job the Swedish Migration Board does when checking who they let stay. And if it is a verified actual ISIS terrorist, he is not put in jail, but offered job, housing and help. Help!

So, as predicted long ago, that the increasing crime in Sweden would eventually run over the borders, is now about to happen. It was inevitable.
Police in western Sweden have a tough fight against what is described as criminal networks who have settled in small towns. Now their Norwegian colleagues prepare to prevent the criminals from crossing the border, reports Expressen.
- The criminals do not care about borders. We are aware of it, says Monica Anstensen, sheriff in the Norwegian border municipality of Aremark.
According to police, a network of up to 50 people has settled in small communities in Dalsland and Värmland, and parts of the network are suspected of committing crimes.
But while a burglary wave has swept across several of the western Swedish municipalities, the situation is so far different for the neighbors in Norway.
- I know how it is in Sweden, but we have not seen it here. Not to that extent, said sheriff Monica Anstensen.
May come to Norway
She works in Aremark, a municipality with about 1,400 inhabitants, bordering the Swedish Dals-Ed in the east.
- Here in Aremark there are not many properties, but in Norway there are also more police officers along the border than in Sweden. Today we have a police office in each municipality, so we are many police officers along the border, says Monica Anstensen.
The sheriff explains that the Norwegian police is aware that the burglary networks that have settled in western Sweden currently, in the future may also strike against them.
To avoid that from happening, there is an ongoing cooperation with the police in Sweden.
- It is the Swedish police who contacted us, and we have had a meeting and joined a big police action in Sweden two weeks ago. We have e-mail communication and are talking with each other. We cooperate with the Swedish police and customs, and hope that we can continue to do so. For the criminals do not care about borders, says Monica Anstensen.
How do you intend to avoid that the criminals do not move to Norway?
- We have prepared ourselves as much as we can. We try to learn from what they have learned on the Swedish side and we have previously had some of the most active on the Swedish side here. We cooperate with the Norwegian customs on the border. We pay attention to it.
At the same time, just as was the case in Sweden, there are changes in Norway's police organization. One of the consequences is that the police station in Aremark will be closed down, according to Halden Arbeiderblad.
