- FROM SWEDEN PLEASE HELP US A new law about refugees has been issued on 21/6/2016 and it will be activated on 20/7/2016 but it does not distinguish between those who entered before the issuance of this law and entered after, as a refugees we were not aware about it at all, not even a slight knowledge of it, because the parties meeting was on November 2015, consequently all of those who arrived before that date should not be covered under the new rules, even when we made the first interview in the migration department (Migrationsverket) we have not been told, therefore we have gained the rights of the current law of that time. It is injustice and unfair to be dealt with us under the terms of the new law, this law should not Boston e applied retroactively. Law passed by the Swedish Parliament was all who came after 24/11/2015 But the Department of Immigration, who included who before 24/11/2015 it's strange thing. The copy of the right decision its present in the Sweden Parliament. On what this law may affect? 1-It could take years to get the families back together. 2-Burial scientific certificates and deprive their holders of continuing educational attainment. 3-Passive support of the black market and the resulting exploitation of the owners of temporary residency permits.
