Flyktingfokus på Afrikas horn

Sverige ska under 2010 ta emot ett stort antal kvotflyktingar från Eritrea och Somalia. Dessutom ska många asylsökande från Afrikas horn som redan finns i Sverige få sin status ordnad. Migrationsverket har ansvar för att välja ut vilka flyktingar som får komma hit och att ordna deras introduktion i Sverige.
