    Looks like the Swiss got fed up of EU's policy on mass immigration (legal and illegal) from all over the world and have decided to do something about. Good job.
    The question is who's next :)

    Swiss are not member of EU and they oppose even internal immigration from other European states . EU laws are good but the problem is with the attitude adopted by certain EU members states which is making things worst for the whole EU .

    Yes Switzerland is not an EU member, why should they take in all the immigrants from the EU.

    Vague statement, explain more.

    Why Swiss not in EU ? Is it because of the banking system ?

    EU mainly goal was economic partnership among EU members states by which EU nationals will benefit which would let easy investment, more jobs, improvement of living standards, infrastructure and people to people contacts etc. The problem started with integration which here was learning language, understanding culture and historical realities which would end misconceptions but when internal immigration started EU nationals were not willing to learn language and even crime rate increased. Certain rich EU countries were not able to cope up with the sudden changes in all aspects of life. And to make EU nationals to integrate they started making immigrants from outside EU the base to make EU immigrants to learn the language etc which got backfired in such a way that integrated non EU immigrants started to feel the heat as they become scapegoats.

    Swiss people held referendum to not join the EU, it is their choice. But they do have close links to the EU including heavy migration from EU, which they have now voted to restrict.

    You make some good points, which is why I said EU policy on immigration as it stands now, is doing more damage and may backfire due to it being unpopular with Europeans.

    The referendum was made by keeping the banking system i think


    EU policymakers laid a very good policy but some EU countries are not willing to accept the EU charter

    No, it is not an EU member.
    There are treaties between Switzerland and the EU which allow for the points you mentioned.

    According to the OP article, about 23% of Swiss population is foreigners. Imagine that. It is no wonder that Swiss are taking action. I say good job.
    Most of them seem to be from Germany and Italy and of course the African immigrants most of whom are from North Africa.

    Switzerland has one of the highest proportions of foreigners in Europe, amounting to about 27 percent of the country’s population of roughly eight million. Many job seekers have arrived from countries hit hard by the European economic crisis.

    Immigration has become a polarizing issue across Europe. More prosperous nations are growing worried that their welfare systems cannot handle an influx of workers from the poorer Eastern European countries and some southern member states of the European Union.

    Rasism and fascism party Swedish Democrats wants smaller things about immigrants to homeland. Sure about this things. The Christ Democrats wants smaller groups also and Pirates party is 1 procent in voiting day 2014...4 procent is the marginal to join riksdan...and I wan't 1 of 3 partys in my voite in 2018. Pirates Party don't know the immigrants rules. Social Democrats want around 40.000 new and Centers and Left Party want at least 100.000 new most in the Swedish politic system. The rich partys want's under 75.000 new people. Whatever what Swedish politics wan't but I want KD or SD idea.

    don't get who's who. Pirates Party what's it?

    humanitarian and professional criteria aside, how does Sweden cull immigrants? guess there're plenty of aspirants queuing to move to Sweden within Europe, like desperate Ukrainians or Greeks?
