  • Children born in Sweden are being deported because their parents do not have the right to stay here - despite a recent judgement stating the best interests of the child to be central in such decisions.
  • 13-year old Hadicha who has lived in Sweden all her life is one of these children.
  • The child's interest must be weighed against having regulated migration, says Daniel Grynfarb of the Migration Agency.
