Elin Ersson, the Swedish student who was hailed as a "hero" because she refused to go on a flight to protest the deportation of an Afghan immigrant, was charged with violating the Federation's aviation law
According to the indictment, Ersson "violated the Swedish Aviation Law by standing when the plane took off Fox News reports. She could be punished and sentenced to a term of imprisonment of up to six months.
The controversy broke out in July when Elin Ersson founded a flight to Turkey from Gothenburg, Sweden, refusing to sit down.
Migrant Had Prison for His Wife
Ersson, crying in the emotional Facebook livestream video, said she was heartbroken because she did not want the Afghan refugee to be deported back to Afghanistan after his asylum application.
"I do what I can to save a person's life," Elin sobbed. "As long as a person gets up, the pilot can not get away, I just want to stop the deportation, I've done it as an individual, as an activist, as a human."
Ersson was hailed as a hero because he fought for a refugee, although their protest bothered the travel plans of all their passengers, because the flight never got going.
Further investigation revealed that the Afghan immigrant Elin Ersson was detained, according to the Swedish news website Fria Tider after being convicted of assaulting his wife and daughters. [ One day after Erson's stunt, the migrant was deported back to Kabul in Afghanistan, so that her protest was truly in vain
Sweden gasps from mass refugees
In recent years, Sweden has accepted more refugees per capita than any Land in Europe, Foreign Policy reported.
Sweden has received 190,000 refugees in 2015 alone, according to the country's migration office. This is shocking, considering that the total population of Sweden is less than 10 million.
The massive wave of immigration – especially from people fleeing war zones in the Middle East – has weighed on Sweden's generous welfare system.

Swedish Minister of Finance Magdalena Andersson said that asylum applications are unsustainable in the long run.
"We will have to borrow money," Andersson said.
Even liberal Swedes, known for their tolerant society, are getting out of control, especially as many migrants do not integrate into Swedish society by learning the language or by adapting to Swedish cultural norms.
"We've taken in more than we can help, and I do not think it's okay." Anna Lennartsdotter Lin dbom tells USA Today . "If we do not let them understand how our society works, if they grew up under a different system, that can be a problem."
Lindbom said she was "normally a liberal voter" but now many of her friends, neighbors and colleagues are considering choosing right-wing politicians. "Many people say they are the only party willing to take up the immigration issue," she said.
