A major migration crisis has been ongoing in European countries in the course of the last few years, with many of them struggling to cope with the growing influx of migrants.
The recent wave of asylum immigration from Muslim countries to Sweden has coincided with a tenfold increase in Islamist extremists identified by the country's security forces.
This is the second time the 35-year-old man, whose asylum application was rejected, has avoided deportation to his home country.
According to Sweden's state-owned post operator PostNord, parts of Sweden's third-largest city are so dangerous that allowing staff to work there would be a violation of the employer's responsibilities. By contrast, locals, who have had no packages delivered in no fewer than seven years, complain of a violation of their basic rights.
Distinguishing between refugees and migrants is a hard task, the director of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration has argued, conceding that some of the migrants are drawn to Europe by vast opportunities within the shady part of the economy.
At present, there are thousands of migrants whose asylum applications have been turned down. Many file new applications citing new grounds, such as religious conversion and homosexuality in an attempt to delay deportation.
In a bid to restore the "natural right" of Swedish people to their country, the new right-wing Alternative for Sweden party wants to send back "hundreds of thousands of immigrants" in a matter of several years.
In a bid to rid the Scandinavian country of dozens of "extra vulnerable areas" (which is a bureaucratic euphemism for ghettos), the Swedish government plans to invest a whopping SEK 19 billion ($2 billion) in measures to "reduce and counter segregation."
A Norwegian university has expressed concern over refugees' lack of access to wholesome food, which in many cases forces them to suffer bout of hunger. Single men have been identified as the most vulnerable category for lack of cooking skills due to more traditional gender roles.
Over the past three weeks, deportees from Finland to Iraq have been promptly turned around and sent back, according to police sources.
Today, Finnish passports are issued to foreigners six times more often than in the 90s, and almost all new holders are dual citizens. This is more than in any given year since Finland's independence, a development the leader of the right-wing Finns Party finds worrisome.
According to the Swedish government's own calculations, the state's generosity toward thousands of Afghans with no grounds for asylum will set the state coffers back SEK 2.9 billion ($350 million) in the next three years alone.
In a surprising remake of a much-criticized idea from opposition party Social Democrats, Lars Løkke Rasmussen has ventured that Europe's new asylum system will focus on common reception and deportation centers established in countries that are "less desired destinations" among migrants.
While Sweden's politicians and media have long painted immigration out to be economically beneficial, a new report has challenged the official narrative, estimating the net cost of an average immigrant at SEK 74,000 per year ($8,500).
Unless Middle Eastern and North African states quickly adopt radical reforms, unemployment will rise alarmingly, prompting another influx of immigrants to Europe, a right-wing Danish People's Party (DF) senior representative has warned.
A documentary by Swedish Radio has highlighted the problem of prostitution in central Stockholm, where so-called "street children," mostly of foreign decent, have become a sought-after commodity among middle-aged ladies. One of the "street kids" described the agreement as beneficial, due to money, food and shelter being offered.
The Sweden Democrats have backed up the Conservatives' crusade to put an end to so-called "honor culture" permeating Swedish suburbs and stressed that they are prepared to go as far as expulsion to tackle it.
With Finland experiencing record-low birth rates, Finns Party leader Jussi Halla-aho believes automation and digitalization will be able to offset adverse demographic trends in the Western world.
While an average citizenship request takes progressively more time to process, the Danish government is poised to make it still harder to obtain Danish citizenship. The previous tightening has resulted in a drop in the number of Muslim citizens.
Assault and threats, as well as property crimes, sex crimes and offences against migrant center staff are the most common offences for which asylum seekers are suspected, according to a pioneering survey by Finnish police. In 62 percent of the cases, the suspects were Iraqi citizens.
