Thousands of deportations can't be completed

Sixty percent of Swedish asylum seekers set to be deported by police are missing credentials making it harder for police to deport them, reports Swedish Radio.

Per Löwenberg, department director at the National Police Board says they have 7000 cases where asylum seekers who have been turned done, refuse to return home voluntarily.

And because they either don’t have passports or another ID, the police may not expel them by force. They now live either in the Migration Board's accommodations or in homes funded by the Migration Board.
