Government Split on Asylum Seekers

Published torsdag 6 mars 2008 kl 14.02

A split has arisen in the Swedish government over the question of the deportation of asylum seekers who have found permanent jobs in Sweden.

The Christian Democrats are calling for an immediate halt on such deportations saying they want refugees with fixed jobs to be considered as immigrant workers.

The government is currently in talks over a new law that could see an increase in the number immigrants allowed to come to Sweden to work.

But the Christian Democrats say the government is giving the wrong signals to those who are supporting themselves financially and want to integrate into Swedish society.

They hope to gain support for their cause, adding that more deportations could risk strengthening support for opposition party the Social Democrats.
