Gothenburg municipal officials described Sweden's integration policy as a "fiasco" to the US embassy, according to a document from WikiLeaks.
Prior to a visit to Gothenburg by the US embassy in Stockholm in 2008, Bill Werngren, head of the city secretariat's information group and now Gothenburg's election director and the husband of municipal executive board chairwoman Anneli Hulten, made contact with the embassy, according to newspaper Göteborgs-Tidningen (GT) on Friday.
He sent the embassy a series of articles from newspaper Göteborgs-Posten about the integration challenges in and isolation experienced by the city's Somalian community. He wrote in a memo that the situation in Gothenburg reminded him of the phrase, "Houston, we have a problem."
