Sweden is to expel up to 80,000 asylum-seekers. The European country which, along with Germany, has been at the forefront of welcoming asylum seekers from Syria and elsewhere, has now decided that only genuine cases can stay. Or what they believe to be genuine after interviewing.
On the basis of processing so far — with 55% acceptances — Anders Ygeman, Sweden’s interior minister, said that: “We are talking about 60,000 people but the number could climb to 80,000.”
Ygeman says that they’ll be flown out by charter plane over a number of years. I can foresee plenty of problems lying ahead until this is completed !
