10,201 asylum applications in one week alone
Sweden welcomed 10,201 asylum applications last week, the highest ever number.
Latest figures from the Swedish migration and asylum bureau (Migrationsverket) have confirmed the historic rate at which migrants are arriving in the country, which has surpassed even the numbers arriving during the Yugoslav wars. The figures go some way to challenge the conventional wisdom that as the weather gets colder, the flow of migrants into Europe will slow.
The news comes as Sweden’s multicultural house of cards came crashing down around the left wing government, which was forced to admit it could no longer cope with open-door migration and appealed to the European Union and neighbours for emergency aid.
Yet despite the admission the Swedish government has still taken no action to control the flow of migrants into the nation whatsoever.
