Re: Feb. 28th vote on enforced implementation of the deportation initiative

The association of Swiss Kantons has now published a statement aginst this initiative here in German language also here. or here.

One of their reasons is that the initiative seeks to avoid any review or modification by Parliament before being implemented quote "Die Kantone stören sich etwa daran, dass der Stimmbürger die Ausführungsbestimmungen direkt erlassen soll, obwohl dies Aufgabe des Parlaments sei."

They also write they do not have the staff or facilities to handle such an increase in deportees.
Other reasons they give are;
  • Damages Swiss core values
  • People born here will be deported for minor or trivial offences which is against all reason and humanity
  • Many people will appeal their sentences which leads to unnecessary overheads

plus a lot of other comments.
