Sweden has received nearly half of all “unaccompanied minors” in Europe, which has pummeled its country into massive debt.
Tobias Svensson writes for the Swedish newspaper, NyaTider, that Sweden has taken in 40 percent of every asylum seeker entering Europe. It has the largest number of “unaccompanied minors” who are young men from Afghanistan between the ages of 15 and 17-years-old.
In 2015, Sweden imported roughly 35,000 “unaccompanied minors” who are young men from Afghanistan and claim who claimed they are orphans.
The influx of these healthy, able bodies men, surely capable of fighting ISIS, has drained entire villages in Afghanistan that now have zero young men living there between the ages of 15 and 17. It has also drained Sweden’s budget, initially allocated to support social services for its citizens, including police, healthcare, and pension schemes.
Entire municipalities are trapped in debt, forcing them to reduce compensation to contractors originally designed to temporarily house migrants– which reduces their incentive to house them. Worse still– the large number of young men have burdened social services and police supervision.
The area most affected is Uppsala, where every third boy is an “unaccompanied minor” asylum seeker. Every sixth person there is between the age of 15 and 17 years old who are also “unaccompanied minors.”
According to the Swedish Migration Board, Svensson points out that roughly half of the unaccompanied minors said they first lived in Iran for several years before coming to Sweden.
Why didn’t these young Afghani Muslim men stay in Iran? What was the need to leave an Islamic country and go to Sweden?
Why should the Swedish have to take on the financial burden of young men who could work and provide for their siblings and other relatives?
Why did these teenage boys leave their family members behind? If they are in such dire straits, how is it that they are wearing sunglasses and fashionable western clothes, smiling as if they have no care in the world?
