Syrians safe in Russia are taking the “opportunity” to slip into Norway to seek asylum

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 13, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

Update October 16th:  Norway says it will send Syrians back to Russia, here.

This story reminded me of the post we wrote in August about a Syrian woman saying that many Syrians are just “opportunists!”

Here, The Daily Caller reports on a NY Times article about the latest wave of Syrians this time making their way through Russia.

LOL! most likely encouraged by Putin (is he buying the bikes?) because he doesn’t want a huge Muslim population in Russia.

Staying in Russia is not an option for these Syrians….

I’m guessing this route is going to be closed as the winter sets in!

Daily Caller:

“Syrian citizenship generally confers Refugee status in Europe,” notes Andrew Higgins of The New York Times, in a report about the exploding popularity of a route from Russia into northern Norway. Some Syrians already living in Russia are now using that route to pop across the border and claim asylum they normally might not be granted.

They see the path across the Russian border with Norway as a newly available opportunity for “a better life,” reported the Times. The outpost they’re heading for is 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle.

    Syrians living peacefully(?) in Russia spent $2,250 to travel to Norway for a better life. Maybe they can not act up in Russia without severe penalties & maybe they are made to work for a living.
