Former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has claimed that the large-scale influx of asylum seekers to Sweden is a blessing for the country, comparing them to couples having new children.
The former Swedish leader, who led the country from 2006 to 2014, compared the influx of asylum seekers to having children, saying: “Those who were first seen as a cost will become the best investment of your life,” Expressen reports.
Reinfeldt defended his longtime pro-mass migration views saying that Sweden “has been a country of immigrants. A country that has been open to people who came from all over the world, who entered our society and became part of our country, called themselves Swedes and helped build welfare with their efforts and work.”
