The issue of immigration in Sweden has sparked anger on the streets
About 300 staff are facing redundancies, with local authorities having no idea how they will cope with reduced guards.
According to Sweden's Migration Board the cuts will focus mainly on the central region.
Migration manager Magnus Önnestig said in a statement: "All counties and localities in the region affected by the layoffs.
"The reduction will primarily be achieved through redeployment and natural attrition, but redundancies can not be ruled out.

The Government then introduced a scheme to offer individual asylum seekers £3,500 or £8,500 to families if they withdrew their applications and left.

However another key reason is said to be a lack of work for migrants and long processing times as the Government puts the bill of accommodate asylum seekers to £4.8 billion in 2016.

Of the almost 163,000 people who arrived in the country fleeing their homes, less than 500 found a job.
Last year, Ylva Johansson, the Minister for Employment and Integration said: “Most Swedes are not racist.
“But when there is this special asylum housing when they cannot work, and cannot be part of society this is really a tension.
