Pauli Vahtera: Immigration costs EUR 3.2 billion a year for Finland – ‘My last emergency cry for Finnish decision-makers’
According to Pauli Vahtera, humanitarian immigration costs Finland 3.2 billion euros a year. Vahtera published a 3 – part computation in his blog on Tuesday and Wednesday in Iltalehti.
Vahtera has made a wide-ranging study showing how the costs of humanitarian immigration are spread across different sectors of society. The figures are specified in the calculation below Pauli Vahtera.
— […] Every reader can think of what is good and important that the money will bring to Finnish society, and how spending affects the ability to manage future generations’ expenditures and debts, Vahtera justifies his work in his blog Iltalehti.
At the same time, Vahtera criticizes the fact that the government and officials have not been able or willing to make a similar calculation.
– In Finland, there are tens of thousands of well-paid officials who have not been able to reduce the cost of public spending on socially important issues of immigration.
– Not even when the settlement has been agreed in the government program. Apart from time, money, staff and information technology, they have access to all the information ( data ) that makes it easy to calculate. Officials lack the will or know-how, or they are forbidden to determine costs.
“My last emergency cry for Finnish decision-makers”
In her writing, Vahtera tells openly her own motivation for the work she has done.
– This is my last emergency cry for Finnish decision-makers – look at what you have done for Finland. Look and think about whether everything is going on or whether real remedial action is being taken.
Hard to count
According to Vahtera, he has “used to some extent” to use logical reasoning to determine expenditure.
– Anyone who says that it’s a miscalculation, present then the real numbers with justification. I’ll check my calculations with the better data. When we get a thorough and objective explanation of the costs stated by the officials, it will be higher than the calculation of 3.2 billion euros, Vahtera states.
Based on the calculation, Vahtera says that he has used publicly available sources: state and municipal budgets and financial statements, statistics, among others, government debt, immigration, asylum decisions, demographic structure and development aid, research reports, municipal and state aid decisions, forecasts and news.
– I have not had any detailed information on these matters from the researchers who have various rights.
According to Vahtera, the costs of immigration can be related to, for example, the expenditure of the state or the city of Helsinki. According to him, the city of Helsinki’s spending in 2017 was 4.2 billion, and this year the state budget expenditure will be about 55 billion euros.
A group of 100,000 people
In humanitarian immigration, Vahtera counts 100,000 adults and children living in Finland. Some children were born in Finland. According to Vahtera, they have come to Finland as asylum seekers and refugees.
That number, according to Vahtera, is not included with those who were educated and skilled and who integrated on their own in our country.
In his calculations, Vahtera also refers to the population projections of the Helsinki region ( Helsinki, Vantaa, Espoo, Kauniainen + frame ), which the City of Helsinki has made an estimate. In the Helsinki region the foreign population is projected to increase by 348 000: by the year 2030.
– The good question is: where is the decision to use such powerful tax money for the invasion of foreigners to Finland? Another big question is: does this mean that the tightening of climate targets is already significant. The third big question is: do Finns want to live in cities where every second resident is foreign, because it would change the city image substantially.
– In addition to housing, more public construction is needed: roads, streets, schools, daycare centers. In 10 years, current foreigners retire and they also need treatment. As people age, they forget the language of their new homeland, so in foreign health care and care for the elderly, foreign-language staff are increasingly needed, Vahtera writes.
