So many refugees remained in Sweden

New figures: Less than half have left Sweden voluntarily

New figures: Less than half have left Sweden voluntarily
Almost 163,000 people applied for asylum in Sweden in 2015. The "refugee crisis" was on everyone's lips - and fundamentally changed our country. But what happened to those who came here? Where do they live today? How many have jobs? And what happened in the municipalities where they were placed? This is what this review is about

47,172 people who came to Sweden during the refugee crisis have been denied their asylum application.

Less than half have left Sweden voluntarily.

- The largest group is people who have deviated and who stay away. Our case balance is constantly growing, says Border Police Chief Patrik Engström.

No one knows how many people living in Sweden without a permit. What is a fact, however, is that it is a group that is constantly growing.
Aftonbladet’s review Those who came show that almost 84,000 people who sought asylum in Sweden during the refugee crisis have been granted residence permits, permanent or temporary.
So far, 42 130 return cases have been settled. Of them:
22,658 people left Sweden by themselves.
16,817 personal cases were handed over to the police, of which 12,840 due to being deviated and 4,054 for forced enforcement.
2,334 cases have been written off. (For example, when the person has obtained a permanent residence permit or when the Migration Court has annulled the removal decision.)
1,490 cases are so-called Dublin cases where the deadline for leaving Sweden has expired.
In October 2019, 12,428 return cases from 2015 were still open. The police’s own statistics do not indicate that many of them will be terminated.

Every year, the police carry out about half as many cases as the Migration Board hands over.
- The biggest difficulty is that 75 per cent of the cases we receive are people who have deviated. That is, people who stay away.
What is the police doing to find them?
- We call for them and then we can only follow up on the tips we get, we find some of them but far from everyone.
In this way, the so-called case balance grows year by year. The only thing that slows down the statistics is that cases are prescribed after five years and thus disappear from the police lists. It keeps the numbers down, but a prescribed case does not mean that the person has left Sweden.

Among those classified as deviant are also those who traveled from Sweden without giving notice. The most common thing then is that they have moved to another country within the EU.
- But then they often come back here again because we were the EU country that first investigated their asylum application. We have between 30 and 40 such returns a week, says Patrik Engström.
Does not accept returners
The other large group of people who cannot be rejected or rejected are people whose home countries do not receive them.
- There are people we know where they are, but Iraq, Iran, Eritrea and Somalia, for example, are countries that simply do not accept citizens if they do not travel voluntarily.
The police are trying to obtain a functioning return system with several countries, but have no great success.
- From Iraq, we currently have 2,600 cases that cannot be completed. We within the police should not engage in politics or diplomacy, says Patrik Engström.
He does not want to say that it is hopeless, there are examples of countries where the return of return has improved.
- A few years ago, people could not be deported to Ethiopia, but now we have a well-functioning exchange of government, the same applies to Afghanistan.
