Asylum seekers are told that Sweden can not guarantee accommodation. They must then decide themselves whether they want to come.
Sweden can no longer guarantee accommodation to all refugees who come to the country, says the country's minister of justice and migration, Morgan Johansson, at a news conference.
- Asylum seekers are told that Sweden can not guarantee that they get accommodation. They must then decide themselves whether they want to go Sweden or not, says Morgan Johansson.
- They must decide whether they will stay in Germany, where they actually have a roof over their head, or whether they want go to Sweden, adds the Swedish Minister.
- I hope that this message will have a dampening effect, he says.
The pressure from the many migrants and refugees who have come to Sweden, had the Swedish Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, to ask the EU for help to reallocate some of the country's refugees, on Wednesday.
The request was sent to the European Commission so that asylum seekers in Sweden can be reallocated to other EU countries.
- Sweden has long taken an unreasonably large responsibility in relation to other countries in the EU, and now we are in a very strained position. It is time that other countries now take responsibility, said Löfven in a written statement.
It is not clear how many refugees there are, but it is clear that no country has responded.
Several thousand refugees and migrants come to Sweden every day. Many go "underground" and are never registered.
Swedish authorities also fear the emerging xenophobia by Swedes, which for the moment is manifested in the form of arson.
