The Swedish government has announced an international information campaign to dissuade migrants from coming to the country another step away from its precedent of welcoming immigrants.

The announcement, reported by The Local Sweden, came during a Tuesday news conference where the governments migration minister said the campaign will be targeted at foreign authorities through the media and word of mouth. The goal, Minister Maria Malmer Stenergard said, is to make it so fewer people will come to Sweden, according to the outlets translation.

Malmer Stenergard was joined by Henrik Vinge, the parliamentary group leader of the Sweden Democrats, a far-right political party that made big gains in the countrys September elections and, as a result, gathered more political influence. The party in October joined Swedens three other new governing parties the Moderate Party, Christian Democrats and Liberals in releasing a coalition agreement that includes plans for wide-ranging migration law reforms, such as restricting family reunification and labor immigration.
