There's enough refugees to provide for both. Could be the employment they seek.

The Rest of the Story is 160,000 people sought asylum in Sweden last year. 55 percent of applications are expected to be accepted, while the rest will be declined.


In other words some European countries are overwhelmed with asylum seekers.

In the realm of estimated numbers.... yeah.
Countries have quotas.

Perhaps you're familiar with the journey of trans-Atlantic vessel, the St. Louis?

After all but a few, with proper papers, were denied entry into Cuba, their first destination, they thought they could go to the USA. They were rejected on the basis of 'waiting their turn'... as quotas had already been filled easily, creating a huge waiting list.
