Norway paying migrants to leave! We should be doing the same thing!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 26, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

I have been arguing for more than a year (ever since reader CW proposed it) that we should be setting up a “repatriation fund” to fly refugees and others home who get into the US, but discover that the streets are not paved with gold (and that they have to work in meatpacking plants!) and now want to go home.  Throw in a little extra sweetener and it will still be cheaper than paying federal contractors to get them hooked on welfare (or cause financial and social chaos in schools systems, a la Amarillo).

Norway to Middle Eastern migrants: Maybe you would like to go home (where it is warmer)—we will pay you! Photo:

From The Telegraph:

The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) says the measure is less expensive than keeping refugees in immigration centres in the country.

Launched on Monday, the scheme will run for six weeks, state broadcaster NRK reported UDI saying.

The money will be paid to the first 500 asylum seekers to apply on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We need to entice more [people] to voluntarily travel back by giving them a bit more money on their way out. This will save us a lot of money because it is expensive to have people in the asylum centres,” Sylvi Listhaug, integration minister, said.

The 10,000 kroner would be in addition to the 20,000 kroner already given to asylum seekers and migrants in an irregular situation who wish to return voluntarily from Norway to their country of origin.

    What a damn shame. I would go with giving them free transportation all the way back to their caves in middle east, but NOT pay them!!!

  5. I wouldn’t pay them. This will only encourage them to come, collect money, then leave, in a perpetual cycle. What entices them to come are handouts and free money. If they agree to leave (with the stipulation that they are NOT citizens, and are NOT entitled to reenter) than why not fly them out in batches on military troop transport planes? they can be flown to the military base (or UN center) nearest their home country, then marched to the gate while at gunpoint. To keep the liberals happy, we can give them a baloney sandwich and some ramen soup during the trip back home, and a blanket, canteen, and maybe some saltines and a can or two of sardines to help them get resettled.

    These people say they are a nation, but they have no borders! If that’s not an oxymoron I don’t know what is.. If they can’t control their own borders they are finished before they even start. Norway, Sweden all those countries are done because they have no borders!
