The MEP referenced in the link is Sweden's version of Nigel Farage. He is a member of a right wing, nationalist, populist party that is basically very anti-immigration and generally anti-EU so his comments are not surprising.
The elite controlled media in all EU countries have very successfully blamed immigration for the increasing poverty and social problems in each country. A significant section of the population buy into the narrative giving rise to anti-immigration, nationalist, populist parties. They exist across Europe. They are strongest in countries that already tend to have a strong nationalistic tendency, like the Visegrád Group, and weakest, but growing in strength, in the more liberal countries like Scandinavia and the UK. They offer simplistic solutions to gullible people such as get rid of immigrants and your life will be better. Ring any bells? Unfortunately the section of the EU that wants ever more political and economic integration, and it is only a section, increases the fears that the populist parties feed on.
