At a press conference on Thursday, Minister for Migration Maria Malmer Stenergard (M), Ludvig Aspling (SD), Ingemar Kihlström (KD) and Amir Jawad (L) presented a decision to establish so-called ‘repatriation centers’ in Sweden.

These centers aim to bring together rejected asylum seekers in one place and facilitate the implementation of deportations.

The government is implementing several measures to combat the shadow society and to put in place an orderly reception of asylum seekers and effective repatriation in case of rejection, said Maria Malmer Stenergard at the press conference.

Fredrik Kärrholm of the Moderate Party comments on the proposal on Twitter.

According to Ludvig Aspling of the Sweden Democrats, the facilities will be an important part of significantly increasing the proportion of decisions that are actually implemented, a clear indication that the asylum process has been completed.

In order for Sweden to have a sustainable migration policy and be able to focus on the people who have a good reason to be in the country, we must have a functioning and effective return system.

Last year, around 74% of asylum seekers were rejected and thus received a deportation decision. In 2022, the Swedish Migration Agency registered 11 580 return cases. Only 39% of those who received a decision to leave Sweden did so.

This is far from sufficient. It’s high time that a ‘no’ actually means a ‘no’ for real, if regulated immigration is to be maintained, says Minister for Migration Maria Malmer Stenergard.

According to the proposal, the mandate is to be implemented immediately.
