Surprise! ‘Refugees’ not liking life in Finland headed home to Iraq by the thousands, kiss the ground

Invasion of Europe news…..
This news strikes me as a possible partial solution to the European migrant crisis—make the asylum process difficult and offer charter flights home.
In fact, a smart legislator in America should introduce a bill that would set up a ‘Repatriation Fund’ to pay refugees (and illegal aliens) air fare home. I would even throw in a little starter money when they promise not to come back! Learn about this idea from a guest comment, here. Over the years we have heard from (and about) refugees to America who are very unhappy (disillusioned!), but have no resources to get home.
I am convinced that a Repatriation Fund would be cheaper for the American taxpayer than paying out all of the welfare, healthcare, and education costs of the migrants!
Here is the news from Thursday (I missed a lot of news this week, so am trying to catch up!) at the UK Daily Mail:
Iraqi refugees who left Finland voluntarily due to chilly weather conditions have been pictured kissing the ground in joyous scenes upon their return to Baghdad.
Thousands of the migrants who left Finland arrived back in the Iraqi capital today and were pictured greeting loved ones and celebrating their return home.
They had originally fled to Finland only to become disappointed with life in the frosty Scandinavian country.
Photographs taken of their arrival in Baghdad showed some crying with relief at being reunited with loved ones, while others kissed the floor of the airport after touching down.
Europe is in the grip of its worst migrant crisis since the Second World War, with more than a million people arriving last year having fled wars and poverty in the Middle East and Africa.
Although Germany and Sweden have taken in many of the migrants, Finland too saw its number of asylum seekers increase nearly tenfold in 2015 to 32,500 from 3,600 in 2014.
Almost two thirds of these were young Iraqi men, but some changed their mind and returned after Finland chartered flights to Baghdad.
Officials said about 4,100 asylum seekers had so far cancelled their applications and that number was likely to reach 5,000 in the coming months.
So much more and lots of photos here.
