A replica of a Jose Marti statue that sits in New Yorks Central Park, is seen during its unveiling in front of the Museum of the Revolution on January 28, 2018, in Havana, Cuba. The statue of Cubas national hero Marti was donated by a fund initiated by the Bronx Museum of the Arts and was unveiled on the 165th anniversary of Martis birth. President Raul Castro has declared that he will step down from the presidency and that therefore the National Assembly will elect a new president in Cuba on April 19, 2018. Diaz Canel is said to be most likely Cubas new President. Cubas Revolution leader Fidel Castro died in November 2016. (Photo by Sven Creutzmann/Mambo photo/Getty Images)

HALMSTAD, SWEDEN - FEBRUARY 08: Swedish students are seen in a classroom of a school on February 8, 2016 in Halmstad, Sweden. Last year Sweden received 162,877 asylum applications, more than any European country proportionate to its population. According to the Swedish Migration Agency, Sweden housed more than 180,000 people in 2015, more than double the total in 2014. The country is struggling to house refugees in proper conditions during the harsh winter; summer holiday resorts, old schools and private buildings are being turned into temporary shelters for asylum seekers as they wait for a decision on their asylum application. Sweden is facing new challenges on its migration policy after the massive arrival of refugees last year, forcing the country to drastically reduce the number of refugees passing through its borders. Stricter controls have had a significant effect on the number of arrivals, reducing weekly numbers from 10,000 to 800. The Swedish migration minister announced in January that the government will reject up to 80,000 refugees who applied for asylum last year, proposing strict new residency rules.
