Swedish companies decry deportations of skilled workers

The heads of Sweden's largest companies, including clothing giant H&M and telecoms maker Ericsson, denounced deportations of highly-skilled workers as the nation's technology sector suffers a shortage of staff. In a letter published by the financial daily Dagens Industri, they said that expulsions of foreign employees "harm business" and that "Swedish companies need to hire globally". "We cannot expect engineers, IT-technicians, and other specialists to leave their countries if they risk expulsion from Sweden for unpredictable reasons," they added. The migration agency has faced criticism for refusing to extend foreign employees' work permits, leading to expulsion, on controversial grounds. The migration agency doesn't comment publicly on individual cases but insists it respects Swedish law when sending deportation orders. "We comply with the current legislation," migration agency spokeswoman Lisa Bergman told AFP.
