Sweden to strain conditions for family immigration

The Swedish government and the right- sect populist Sweden Egalitarians will push ahead with a offer to strain the conditions for family immigration aimed at reducing the number of crossings to Sweden, the government and the party that supports the government without being a part of it blazoned on Thursday.

Sweden’s right- sect coalition and the Sweden Egalitarians( SD) blazoned their backing for a bill to check the number of advents to Sweden.

“ The government and the Sweden Egalitarians continue to stand up for stricter migration legislation, ” Sweden Egalitarians ’ Party Secretary Bäckström Johansson told a press conference.

“ The proffers aim to reduce the number of shelter campaigners coming to Sweden, ” he added.

To further circumscribe entry, the bill seeks to make it more delicate to gain hearthstone permits on philanthropic grounds, which the government says should be seen as part of the “ paradigm shift ” it wants to apply in migration policy.

To this end, the bill proposes to raise the age limit for refusing hearthstone permits for consorts or cohabitants from 18 to 21 times.

“ This corresponds to the loftiest age limit allowed under EU law ”, said Swedish Migration Minister Maria Malmer Stenergard. The offer should mean that further forced marriages can be averted, she added.

At the same time, the possibility of granting children and certain grown-ups a hearthstone permit grounded on what’s known as ‘ particularly ’ distressing circumstances will be removed. rather, the stricter demand of “ exceptional ” reasons will also apply to children.

Reducing the number of family settlers and those allowed to stay on philanthropic grounds was formerly mentioned by Stenergard when she was appointed as minister as a “ quick ” measure to achieve the paradigm shift.

Review from the opposition
The opposition criticised the proffers as yet another sign of the far- right’s influence over Swedish politics in matters of immigration.

“ We can see relatively obviously then what the results are of the cooperation with the far right. ”, Centre party MEP Abir Al- Sahlan( Renew) told EURACTIV, adding that it wasn’t surprising considering that migration is getting a hot content formerly more.

“ The Dutch government fell last week due to internal splits on this content, and last December Austria refused to let Romania and Bulgaria join Schengen – because of, allegedly, their lack of managing migration duly ”, she said, adding that SD hovered to withdraw their support for the government due to the agreements on the Migration Pact before this time.

“ We need further EU-wide cooperation on migration to break this – not what the Swedish government is proposing ”, she concluded.

Others criticised the Swedish government for the threat of violating the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the European Convention on Human Rights.

But according to Sweden’s migration minister, the proffers are in line with transnational law as the new rules can promote integration.

“ It’s important to bear that people who want to be reunited with their cousins must be suitable to support themselves because this also contributes to better integration and briskly employment, ” Stenergard also said.
