Sweden Closing Small Reception Centers

Sweden Closing Small Reception Centers

Swedish Radio (Sveriges Radio) has reported that the Swedish Immigration Service made the decision to close small reception centers all around the country.

According to the information, Swedish authorities would rather have only larger buildings with more asylum seekers.

However, the decision has outraged Vilhelmina’s residents, asylum seekers and even some politicians.

The radio’s report shows that local residents are very active in their associations and they are able to organize events and workshops to understand different cultures.

Local residents say that asylum seekers are well integrated into their society. They like to live together with the refugees.

“There aren’t a lot of people here, but they are very nice. We would like to live here where we have friends. Our children also have a lot of friends in their schools,” said Chechen asylum seeker Sophia.

However, the Swedish Immigration Service has already decided to close the centers for economic reasons.
