The parties respond: Should the rules for gaining asylum changed?
We asked parliamentary parties party secretary: "The refugee crisis in the world worse. Would your party that rules to gain asylum in Sweden should be changed in any way?"

Yes responds Centre Party, Liberal Party, the Christian Democratic Party, the Green Party, the Left Party and the Sweden Democrats, while the Moderates and the Social Democrats answer no.

Michael Arthursson, Centerpartiet:

- Yes. We are working for foreign citizens to seek asylum at the Swedish embassies abroad, offsetting the need of protection need to get to Sweden from illegal or dangerous roads.

Nina Larsson, Folkpartiet:

- Yes. We want the EU to have the opportunity to get a visa at the Embassy for those who wish to seek asylum. Criticism by the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, and the UN Committee against Torture will guide Swedish asylum. Special consideration should be given to children's asylum claims and unaccompanied children should be especially protected. Expulsions and deportations from Sweden will be evaluated and quality checked.

Acko Ankarberg Johansson, Christian Democratic Party:

- Yes. There must be better able to get to Europe legally. Therefore, we want to introduce the possibility to apply for an emergency visas before entry into the EU and Sweden.

Anders Wallner, environmental party:

- Yes. The Green Party is working to make it easier to come to Sweden, whether you come here to seek asylum, work, study / research or to be united with your family. There must be legitimate ways for asylum seekers to get to Europe.

Aaron Etzler, the Left:

- Yes. No one shall be expelled to countries where there is armed conflict. The law must be revised so that women and LGBT asylum reasons, the weight they should have. The term "particularly distressing circumstances" has been interpreted very narrowly and should be replaced with "particularly distressing circumstances", regardless of age. We also want the EU to create legal routes into Europe for asylum seekers.

Björn Söder, the Sweden Democrats:

- Yes. We want to reduce the costly mass immigration to Sweden and instead increase aid to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, which is responsible for assistance in crisis areas' immediate neighborhood, where most of the refugees are. Real refugees who meet the international treaties we have signed shall continue to have the right to protection in Sweden. This group represents only a small part of the persons assigned residence today.

Kent Persson, Moderates:

- No. The Swedish asylum procedure is right for sure. Migration Board, which is an independent authority, makes an individual assessment of each case and the decisions can be appealed to the Migration Court and the Migration Court. Basically works fine but Swedish legislation can - over time - need to be reviewed.

Jämtin, the Social Democrats:

- No. We must always be prepared to adapt the rules to the conditions that presently exist. The fundamental right to seek asylum and have their asylum claims examined in a legally secure process should not be changed. The important thing now is that the coordination and regulatory framework at EU level change so that countries take greater joint responsibility for refugee protection.

So wonderful country is going to be f*cked up, because i am sure that SD will not have 50+% of the seats after election. So we are going to open not only our hearts, but our pockets waay wider.
I bet we will have:
1. High inflation (government chooses to print money)
2. More taxes
3. We will pay more for healthcare/education

and in a return we will have... oh, that is sad, just sad.

And unless you have Swedish nationality, then you are an immigrant like me, and must accept the situation. Our voting in the local elections will not help very much - well not for the time being anyway.

And please, don't start the Ivor Stephé touch of cutting and pasting, we had enough of that.

Also, whatever you do, do NOT rely on Google translations as they are well known for being unreliable and, at times, highly amusing.

According to our wonderful prime minister we will not get any benefits in the following years because of mass immigration. Wonderful. There are few jobs, bad schools, bad health care and many many more cuts in society. Goodbye Sweden your soon a 3rd world country

It is very important since Kommun and Landsting set local tax rates. Any of those that are currently saying taxes will not rise and services will not be effected are not telling the whole truth.

The parties are worried by Moderaterna's timely disclosure of the extreme cost of immigration in the coming years, for very good reason. Ask yourself what is it that journalists are not asking nor mentioning and political parties that are wanting open borders are not saying?...

Whilst Migrationsverket are asking for an additional 11 Billion per year (on top of the current 10 Billion they spend) to cover their costs for immigration handling...the bit that is not mentioned in the media is that that cost is only what Migrationsverket needs. They only pay for accommodation and support whilst an immigrant is being processed, once they get a permit then they are not longer funded by Mig.

The immigrant falls into the Kommun and Landsting that has to pay from local tax revenue for welfare support, accommodation, healthcare, dental care, social services, infrastructure such as schools, public transport etc... So 11 Billion extra a year for a few years to Mig.v. is a small fraction of the true cost that will ultimately hit Kommun and Landsting long term budgets.

This is why Kommuns do not want too many immgrants in their areas. The only way to pay for that is by raising local taxes and/or reducing services.

Will anyone be brave enough to bring this to the attention of the Swedish people.

Something like a public statement, along the lines, such as:

Hey we have to raise taxes if you want more "new" people!!!

I think not!!!

Did the Swedish people want these new people to begin with???

I think not!!!...Maybe yes???

Look at how the SD is thought of!!!

I find it astounding that other immigrants are discussing voting an anti immigrant party! Also for everyone else NON EU voting do you think that this wont negatively affect you as well?

Also why is it in terms of discussing wasting taxes The Local only focuses on refugees? What about that Swede taking CSN just to fuck around, and party abroad for 2 years in a foreign country without pursuing an actual degree? What about the dual citizen that has lived all of their life abroad, and only returns to Sweden just to use CSN, get their degree, and then leave the country? What about Swedes who after all of their years taking advantage of the country, and its benefits emigrating abroad to avoid taxes to pay back to society, and their CSN loan?

What about the unemployed that do not actively seek a job, and just collect unemployment? What about parents who have taken from family allowance for personal benefits? What about fraud to avoid taxes, and get benefits to their housing? What about clear cut rampant abuse in the disability system?

These are all factors, and abuses, and wastes to the system yet some people are fixated on the costs refugees have on society. It makes one wonder if costs to society is the true issue people are concerned about.

Because...

The abuse of CSN is actively investigated by CSN and even now have finally managed to get a judgement through in many countries to force those to repay...They are actively working against the abuse.

The abuse of the benefit cheaters is being chased by combined task force of Försäkringskassan, Skatteverket and the Police...They are doing something about it.

The abuse of tax evasion is constantly being chased (quite effectively) by Skatteverket, Sweden has one of the highest percentages of taxes paid that are due, in the world, they hit around 96% paid when it should be...they are doing something about it.

Immigration costs ... spiralling out of control, only recently discussed openly by politicians (Wow!) ... and the numbers mentioned are only the initial short term requirements of Migrationsverket, the real cost is back into the Kommuns and Landsting ... it is a cost that is hidden as much as possible, a non-discussion topic, and also abused by those the monies go to via dubious claims of protection and lack of checking ... NOTHING is being done about it, it just continues to rise ...and We tax payers pay the bill.

That's why.

The current government has cut taxes and VAT several times. This means that the state receieves less money. There are so many problems in this country now, with unemployment, housing , health care, pensioners living on the marginal, old age care etc etc. How on earth can this country accept more people when they cannot take care of the people already living here?

Unfortunately when people say that there are too many foreigners here or anywhere else you are immediately called a racist (their magic word) as they cannot understand that a society only has so many resouces and cannot help everybody

Yes sure , in my words , government should close the needs of locals and then they can think to bring Refugees
If their accommodations is prepared ready and they will not affect the budget !

When we can find 1-5 yr queue for fair accommodation in Stockholm / Stockholm City , then they can bring others .

However , other parts of Sweden should be less than that .

When welfare has an increment every year and go better and better then government can bring .,

When" barn bidrag" can be increased to 2,000 kr then instead of 1,050 up to 16 yr !

Then government can think to bring others !
