Sweden at BREAKING POINT: Migrant crisis is 'pushing the Scandinavian country to the edge’

Ever since the Second World War, Sweden has prided itself on ration migrants who crossed its borders despite some moves to the political correct in recent years.

But increasing violence among the migrant population has led some to suspect its goodwill.

Sweden, with a population of 9.5million, annually come by over 160,000 asylum applications and the country is expected to take as profuse as 190,000 refugees, or two per cent of the population, in 2016.

In response to the crisis, which has led to increasing lawlessness and nervousness, the Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg recently introduced an lengthening of the country’s border controls.

She explained: “We are in a dramatic situation that not anyone could imagine might happen, where the control at the boundaries is not chore.

“The situation is changing the rules, not the other way around.”

Public disorder has also develop an increasing worry in Sweden as a knock on effect of the sheer weight of com nies coming into the nation.

In a secret report by Sweden’s National Flagitious Investigation Service, migrant attacks on officers are detailed including supervise cars being stoned by masked groups.

Some 52 arenae have been put on a “blacklist” with some areas deemed so sinful that two police cars are sent to every call out.

While subdue rt of the Schengen zone allowing free movement, the situation has also affected Sweden to re-implement an increase in border controls – though the situation is second to constant review.

But many fear that the explosion of mass migration in modern times will only see the situation further deteriorate.

According to the UN Rich Commision for Refugees, one million people will make their way to Europe in 2016 and the Migration Intermediation has said “it is hardly possible to talk about a forecast any longer”.
