For all the talk and bluster from the Finns Party, we haven’t seen much action, hopefully that’s soon to change, MP Jussi Halla-aho just recently said there’s a need to build a huge barracks compound to house them all, and on the Swedish border.
Tornio takes in more asylum seekers coming over the border from Sweden, faster than they have time to register them. On Thursday Tornio received more than 500 new asylum-seekers.
According to police estimates this week there has been at least 500 entrants every day. The facility center on Thursday registered 320 asylum-seekers, some of whom had come across the border from Sweden to Finland the other day.
On the night between Thursday and Friday an emergency accommodation at Putaan hall and at business facility had 400 unregistered asylum-seekers.

Tornio facility center has sent several busloads of asylum-seekers to reception centers that have been established on a tight schedule in different parts of the country.
For example, three busses of asylum seekers from Tornio came to Lahti on Friday morning. Asylum seekers are accommodated in the vacant Hennala military barracks, where the first bus brought people a little before one o’clock in the morning
