Nearly 95 percent of those seeking asylum in one particular city in Sweden — Basel — are on government benefits.
Check out the opening of Basel’s largest asylum center:
Saying Switzerland has a migrant problem would be an understatement. More to truth in Basel: It’s the taxpayers who are suffering most.
By the number, 25,544 refugees and 55,504 asylum seekers take taxpayer-funded benefits.
Voice of Europe has more:
A report from Switzerland’s SRF news, says that a very large number of refugees and asylum seekers in the country received benefits in 2016.
Officially, 25,544 refugees and 55,504 asylum seekers are on benefits or receive “social assistance”. They make up 35 per cent of all welfare recipients in the country, according to the report.
On average 85.8 per cent of refugees and 88.4 per cent of asylum seekers received benefits last year. The study says that the high percentage can be explained by insufficient language skills, invalid qualifications, or weak health.
The highest proportions of the groups on benefits were registered in Switzerland’s urban areas. In the country’s third largest town Basel, 94.9 per cent of asylum seekers received social benefits.
Asylum seekers are described in the study as people with a residence permit or people who have the right to stay for seven years in the country.
