It is easy to see why the 47-year-old would want to move to Sweden. His child support there would amount to up to 500,000 krona ($60,000), compared to the 214,128 krone ($32,062) he would receive in Denmark.

This guy is taking the piss. Send him back to one of the refugee camps.

The Norwegian Foreign Ministry has calculated that because of all the social, health, housing and welfare benefits mandated by the state, supporting a single refugee in Norway costs $125,000 — enough to support some 26 Syrians in Jordan.

By financing the camps in the region, western countries can help a lot more of these people than by taking in individuals and their 17 children.
