Point by point program on immigration policy
2005. At the Sweden Democrats national annual conference Jimmie Åkesson was elected as the new leader after challenging sitting party leader Mikael Jansson. At the same conference, the party adopted a so-called 33-point program which summarised the party’s immigration policy. The author was Jan Milld, who the year before had become party secretary and who was a recurring contributor in the party’s newsletter, The SD Courier.
Some examples from the 33-point program: The party suggests that Sweden terminate the New York Protocol of 1967. That would mean that Sweden would accept refugees from Europe only and that asylum seekers do not get the opportunity to submit a new application for a residence permit. Migrants would be banned from regular work prior to getting residence and Sweden would be more restrictive in issuing new passports to people who have lost their previously issued documents.
