Sweden Will Deport Up to 80K Refugees

Swedish Interior Minister Anders Ygeman says the country will deport between 60,000 and 80,000 asylum-seekers, after about 45 percent of 163,000 applications were rejected. Sweden and Germany were both top destinations for refugees in 2015. The AP reported that police are working to expel people in advance who may be at risk for hiding. Ygeman said, “We have a big challenge ahead of us. We will need to use more resources for this and we must have better cooperation between authorities.”
