Re: Swiss mull tough benefit cuts for asylum seekers

I think a clear distinction should be made between asylum seekers who collaborate with authorities and can prove their claim and illegal immigrants who are here for economic reasons. The first should be integrated into society with full efforts of the state and society, the latter deported or detained until they leave willingly. And concerning economic migrants, no truly poor person can make it out of the country, let alone pay 5'-10'000 USD for the crossover to Europe. Once clear guidelines are established across Europe there will be much less crime regarding this on both sides of the Mediterranean sea.
And how long does it take for the authorities to establish who's entitled to asylum and who's not? Maybe that's a problem too. A few years process is draining public funds..
