Actualy, the Swiss have been keeping some fairly stiff immigration laws in place. Which is why they are not having the same problems with immigrants that the rest of Europe has been having.

There is another story about a German general asking a Swiss general about manpower...

German: how many men can you raise overnight?
Swiss: one million.
German: what would you do if I marched 5 million men across your border tomorrow?
Swiss: each of my men would fire five shots and go home...

No idea how historically accurate this is.
