Migration Board Lets Police Handle Deportation
Sweden’s Migration Board is tending to let the police handle the deportation of an increasing number of rejected asylum seekers.
According to police figures, 2,700 people were evicted with the help of police forces during the previous year – which is more than twice as much as the amount in the beginning of this decade.
But amid a lack of documents in a growing number of cases, it is practically impossible to identify the correct country of origin of rejected asylum seekers.
Both the police and the Migration Board have now appealed to the government to solve this problem.
