On Wednesday, Anders Ygeman revealed Sweden's plans to expel up to 80,000 failed asylum seekers. He mentioned that deporting migrants would take several years, and charter aircrafts would be used for these purposes.
"We have this system where we have facilities for people who seek asylum to stay until they have got an approval or disapproval of their application. There are several facilities," the spokesperson said, asked whether migrants will be provided with housing while they are waiting for deportation.
"There is some financial aid that they will receive, yes," the spokesperson said, asked whether people facing deportation will get any money.
"They will be directly sent to their countries of origin. Syria, Afghanistan are the main countries. But each case will be reviewed individually," he added.
The amount of asylum applications that Sweden saw in 2015 was the highest per capita index in Europe, according to the Swedish Migration Agency.
Europe is toughening immigration rules due to an unprecedented influx of refugees fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
