Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

If you check out the nationality of foreign criminals in Swiss prisons (and probably UK prisons too) you'll notice that most of them are coming from countries that are not included in the open borders, facilitated immigration group.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_Switzerland

But this thing is irrelevant to Brexit anyway.
That Wikipedia article is based on 2009 data. Romania and Bulgaria, referred to by an earlier poster, were not in the EU at that time and did not have free access across EU borders, nor any more right to live in EU countries or Switzerland than other non-EU countries.

Now, Romanians and Bulgarians have far easier access to Switzerland and to EU countries. Romanians top the crime lists in many of those countries. That's the point that LiB and other posters are making.
