"SKL warns of new wave of refugees: Can be extremely powerful."
"to be Rejected completely by the migration board."
"Anders Knape (M), chairman of the SKL, Sweden's municipalities and county councils, warns a major new wave of refugees."
"During a presentation of the economic situation for the municipalities, he says that family immigration can do that it can get almost as many as in 2015. "
" we are not really equipped at the moment. To receive the volumes, " says Anders Knape. "
"In the employers' association Swedish association of local authorities and county councils, SKL, latest ekonomirapport criticised the government for having taken away the support to municipalities that have received many refugees. SKL would rather see long-term solutions where new arrivals are seen as a resource that should be managed well. "
"Chairman Anders Knape (M) warned that the number of refugees that will come can be almost as many as in 2015."
" We are facing the second-wave immigrants come to the country, family immigration. We do not know how big it will be. It can be incredibly powerful and mean that we are approaching the numbers we experienced during 2015 and 2016. "
"He points out that the municipalities in the current situation would not manage to receive so many newcomers and that it will be tough financially. "
"– a Lot of family immigration will end, in all cases initially, in locations which already have a strained situation, " said Anders Knape."
"But the migration board rejects that Sweden would be facing a large new wave of refugees. Fredrik Söderberg Bruce, t (f) press officer at the Swedish migration board, writes in an email: "
"”the migration board's assessment is that the levels will approach those we had in 2015 and 2016” "
"the Migration board's latest forecast is that the number of refugees in the year will be about half as many as in 2015, next year even fewer."
"”In 2019 we estimate that approximately 27 000 people will be accepted in the country's municipalities, in order to then decrease to approximately 20 000 people in 2020 and 2021. This can be compared with 2016 and 2017 then about 68 000 people were received in the country's municipalities annually,” writes Fredrik Söderberg Bruce."
"When Aftonbladet reaches the Anders Knape, he says that the statement on family immigration is not to be interpreted as a forecast of how it will look in the next few years."
" It's not my opinion. Over time so there may be significant numbers. I don't know what the numbers will land on, there is no one who knows. What we do know is that there have been 17 000 in 2017 and 17 000 in 2018, " says Anders Knape. "
"If you do not know, why, referring you to the volumes that were in 2015 and 2016?"
"– It is not my intention to mislead. I'm just saying that the family immigration we can expect the us creates additional pressure –not least in the municipalities that already received many. It is more of a consumer, " says Anders Knape."
"the Swedish migration board has been wrong."
"He points out that they changed the rules for family immigration introduced this year will be a challenge for Sweden's municipalities. Additionally, he believes that it should be open to the Migration forecasts can beat the wrong. "
"– the regulatory Framework facilitates the family. It can mean that, over time, a large group, and we must be prepared for it in our operations. Since it is so that when the migration board has made the assessment so it has not always been the outcome."
