Green Party Demand Migrants Get to Skip Housing Queue

Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, September 21, 2019

As 2,700 migrants face expiration on their “transition apartments” the Green Party in Gothenburg has demanded they be allowed to live in their residences permanently.

The Swedish Real Estate Agency has warned in a new report that migrants could become homeless as their four-year housing contracts expire in the next few years, leading the Greens to demand that they be given so-called “first-hand contracts” for permanent housing, Nyheter Idag reports.


Housing shortages have become a major issue across Sweden in recent years and Gothenburg is not the only city or municipality to prioritize or propose prioritizing migrants over native Swedes for housing.

A report released in June of this year by the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building, and Planning revealed that half of the local governments across the country gave migrants priority.
