Stockholm truck attack suspect was facing deportation

Jan Evensson, of Stockholm police, told a news conference on Sunday that the 39-year-old suspect’s request was rejected in June 2016 but police could not find him for deportation because he was not at the address he had given.

Jonas Hysing, of Sweden’s national police, said “we know he has been sympathetic to extremist organisations”.

Mr Evenssen said police are holding five more people in connection with the deadly attack on Friday and have questioned over 500 others.

    The CBC will draw the wrong conclussion from this report and suggest it was the racist deportation order that drove him to commit the act.

    OK I have what must be a very stupid question and I feel foolish for asking it when obviously more intelligent people than myself have already figured this out. If a person is to be deported because they are judged to be so unaligned with a countries values why they are not held in custody and sent to wherever they came from on the first plane there so they can’t escape and live illegally in the country they are supposed to be kicked out of?

    Deportation? You mean to tell me it wasn’t some Viking loving White Supremicist native born Swed? No. No. No. Say it ain’t so? You mean immigrants commit terrorism too?
