Official Sweden Website Slammed for Advertising Free Healthcare for Illegals

Members of the opposition in the Swedish government have criticised the website Sweden.se after it published information on how illegal immigrants can receive state healthcare and child benefits.

The Swedish Institute runs the website which lists information in English, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.

It advertises welfare programmes to illegals, including grants for having at least six children and how healthcare in the country is nearly free, Kristianstadsbladet reports.

Head of the centre-right Moderate Party Ulf Kristersson expressed criticism of the site’s content.

Mr Kristersson said: “It’s totally unreasonable. If you explicitly tell people that you can get a lot of money if you have many children, or what benefits you get if you stay in the country illegally, then you send wrong signals about what Sweden should be and what the government should take responsibility for.”
