Greens may halt Alliance immigration collaboration

The Green Party may withdraw their support to the government on immigration issues, reports Dagens Nyheter newspaper. At the last election the Greens stood as part of a red-green opposition bloc, but since then they have supported the current minority centre-right government on certain issues around migration.

According to a DN interview with Green spokesman Gustav Fridolin, the Green Party says the government has not lived up to their side of the deal. The Greens say that the Migration Minister, Tobias Bilström, refuses to change the rules around who is allowed to stay in Sweden as a refugee.

The Greens want the concept of "particularly distressing circumstances" to be interpreted in a more generous way, while Bilström, of the Moderate Party, wants a more restrictive asylum policy.

The Greens say they will still vote in favour of upcoming government proposals on school and healthcare for undocumented migrants.
