Finland. Migris överdirektör Jaana Vuorio i lång intervju med Newsmakers på Helsingin Sanomats sajt.

Överdirektör (i Sverige generaldirektör) Jaana Vuorio, Migrationsverket – Migri – intervjuas i det här videoklippet från Newsmakers (utlagt på Helsingin Sanomats videokanal) på engelska om asylsituationen i Finland. Större delen av den 18 minuter långa intervjun har nedtecknats med tanke på att man inte vet hur länge videoklipp ligger kvar och det som sägs här kan vara intressant att ta del av också om några år eller ännu längre fram, när länken kanske inte längre fungerar. Det mesta är nedtecknat på engelska men en del är översatt till svenska.

David Mac Dougall: Norway has radically revised their estimate downwards, of the number go people who will come to claim asylum, to a 19 year low. What’s the situation  going to be like in Finland this year and what’s it going to be? How many people did you think would come and what’s the reality?

Jaana Vuorio: Our estimate was 10.000 for the entire year of 2016. It seems that we don’t go that much up so now the estimate is around 6000, 7000 at the most.

David Mac Dougall: Comparing it to last year – we had more than 32.000 last year if I remember correctly.

Jaana Vuorio: Yes, in Finland actually, in the European and Nordic context, our asylum seeker figure has been exceptionally stable. It has varied between 3.000 and 4.000 annually and then, all of a sudden last year, we git nearly ten times more applicants.

Intervjuaren säger att det var uppenbart varför det kom så många asylsökande förra året men undrar:

David Mac Dougall: So why has it dropped off so much this year, what are some of the reasons behind fewer asylum seekers?

Jaana Vuorio: Of course there are many reasons for that but the main reason, compare to last year, are the border controls that have been put in place and also the movement from Turkey to Greece, the numbers have gone down, as we all know.

David Mac Dougall: Do you think ut plays into it that Finland is not granting so many asylum applications; not granting so many asylum requests? Do people realize that its not such an easy country to come to and claim asylum?

Jaana Vuorio: Probably that is one of the reasons,  as well as… actually the asylum criteria remains the same but we used to have a national category of ”humanitarian protection” and that was taken away from the immigration law in May this year.

David Mac Dougall: Who did that affect the most, when it was taken away from the law?

Jaana Vuorio: Actually applicants from countries like Irak, Afghanistan and Somalia. Earlier applicants from those countries, they – or most of them – qualified for the category of ”humanitarian protection”.

David Mac Dougall: We’ve seen some of the worst fighting with ISIS in Irak, so somebody fleeing ISIS wouldn’t automatically get their asylum application approved in Finland anymore?

Jaana Vuorio: Of course we look at the situation all the time as it is at the moment and now we know that the situation in Mosul has really deteriorated so the fact that a person comes from Mosul… if he returns there he would face serious harm for his security. But then of course for Iraqis we have to consider whether the person could return safely to some other part of the country. Läs mer

Justitieministern från Den Humanitära Stormakten näpser premiärministern för lilla, dumma Storbritannien

Lyssna nu, premiärministern i lilla (!) dumma Storbritannien, på vad justitieministern i Den Humanitära Stormakten har att säga om ”ansvar”! Ur artikeln Calais migrant crisis: David Cameron accused of ‘playing politics’ på BBC.s sajt den 2 augusti:

BBC om Morgan Johannsons uttalanden 2.8 2015

Notera att man i BBC:s ext har satt citattecken runt ordet ”responsibility”. Det gör jag också alltid när svenska politiker uttalar ordet ”ansvar”, detta (till intet förpliktande) honnörsord bland svenska naivister inom politik och media.

Morgan JohanssonMorgan Johansson säger myndigt:

I think he’s playing on strings – that he wants to actually divide people – and that’s not a constructive way.

Dessutom: Som om han själv och alla andra i regeringen och riksdagen i Sverige inte också ”are playing politics” i dessa frågor! Falskhet och dumhet, kryddat med naivitet och direkt odiplomatisk och ouppfostrad oförskämdhet, se där ett vinnande koncept från en myra som tror att den är en elefant. Mer ur artikeln på BBC:s sajt:

Sweden allows anyone from Syria into the country, and last year Sweden accepted 30,000 asylum seekers compared to the UK’s 10,000.

Mr Johansson called on the rest of the European Union, including the UK, to take more people in.

”I hear what he [Mr Cameron] is saying about illegal immigrants and about swarms and everything like that,” he said.

Pinsamt. Ytterst pinsamt. Men helt i linje med den naivt megalomana stormaktsretoriken som man från politiskt (och medialt) håll i Sverige länge ägnat sig åt. En retorik som skorrar falsk inte bara i utländska öron utan också i allt fler öron i DHS. Morgan Johansson fortsätter dock att, med en dåres envishet, köra med den hittills totalt icke-framgångsrika stilen att mana övriga EU-länderna, inklusive Storbritannien, att ”ta in mer folk”. Det har Sverige okänsligt kört med sedan något decennium tillbaka, också på Alliansregeringens tid och idag även genom en del EU-parlamentariker från Sverige. Trots att de i EU inte ska gå sitt eget lands ärenden utan företräda hela EU, där den svenska synen på ”ansvar” inte alls är densamma.

Stories from Sweden, the Humanitarian Superpower” # 17



Stories from Sweden, the Humanitarian Superpower” # 17

Many of the asylum seekers — especially those who are used to much better living conditions — are appalled by what awaits them in Sweden. The fact that 300–350 people arrive every day (!), is an unimaginable strain on the municipalities that are supposed to receive them and put a roof over their heads. It also puts overwhelming pressure on the Swedish society: its people, the Migration Board and migration courts, schools, doctors and hospitals, dentists, Police etc.
