/ What's the immigration status in Poland?
Ah Yes. Another topic about immigration. I know...
The reason for this topic is because I see many other topics turning into discussions regarding immigration, why it's good, or why it's bad. But I haven't read anything whatsoever on Poland's current immigration status.
Now, I'd like to know what Poland's current immigration status is. Does it have immigration (obviously I guess, as any contry), is it a lot? And from which countries?
Just to add my two cents, people of all races and religions can be great and wonderful people. But I do think a lot of people and politicians underestimate the societal destruction immigration can bring upon a country.
I'm a teacher in The Netherlands (half-polish but also a proud Dutchman), and I teach at a level 2. College. 'Level 2' is the lowest form of education one can receive, every person in the Netherlands is required to have at least a level 2 diploma. Meaning, the children that I teach, are mostly highschool dropouts.
My classes are about 30 students big, and it's uncommon for me to have more than 2 ethnic Dutch students my classroom. Most of them are Moroccan, Turkish or Somalian. They speak Dutch, but with a thic accent. (Although I often have to correct students because they're speaking Turkish, Morrocan etc) I'd say 99% of them are Muslim. Now, mind you; there are some wonderful students on that school, but the majority is scum and will probably start a criminal career after their diploma. Don't get me wrong, I love my job since they're an interesting sort to teach, but I often find myself thinking; 'Jesus, Netherlands... what have you brought upon yourself?' None of these students identify as 'Dutch' and some of them even insult my country or spit on it. It hurts, but there's not much I can do about that, since I'll lose my job if I were to say something along the lines of; "Then go somewhere else".
Conclusion; what I've learned from my experience as a teacher, is that homogenous societies function better. Multicultural societies tend to have a lot of friction, especially if you reach a certain point where 33% of your country does not share your heritage (like The Netherlands). You just have a big lump of humans wandering around in your country. And slowly, the culture of my country is changing. Shops are changing Christmas slogans and articles to 'Winter-festivities', Easter is being called, spring festivity at school, due to Islamic children. During Easter celebration in the big cities at school, children are not allowed to put a cross onto their Easter staffs, because it might feel as an oppression to the Muslims students'. We now even have an Islamic party in our parlement. Slowly our culture is being questioned; 'what does it mean to be Dutch?' This is all due to immigration, since you cannot say 'A Dutch person is a white-Christian male/female of Dutch cultural heritage' because we now have other-Dutch people as well. Our whole identity is being redefined. Some politicians now state that being Dutch just means; 'Being open and tolerant to other cultures and being multicultural' if that's the standard, then I can just pick a random person from the UK or Italy, who is tolerant, open and (for example) Hindu and just plot them into the Netherlands and 'boom!' He's Dutch. Even though he doesn't speak a word and shares nothing of my culture. It's a lot to chew on and the current state of The Netherlands has many factors, such as political correctness etc.
I just want to know in what state Poland is in, and if it will ever reach the current state of The West. I'd just hate to see another country lose it's identity, merely because of immigration. Especially since I feel for it as well. So Poland, please, don't underestimate the level of destruction immigration can bring.
