UK paying “refugees” to go home

Invasion of Europe news…..


New UK Prime Minister Theresa May: In September she told the UN that the UK would be fortifying its borders.

The British government is paying around $2,400 (in US dollars) for migrants to leave the British Isles and return home.  Needless to say the project is causing a stir now that it is out in the open.

The headline uses the word “refugee” but in fact these are people who are mostly asylum seekers who have not yet been granted asylum and are thus not technically refugees, but, as the article says, they are illegal migrants.

Critics say the plan will encourage more illegal entry because it is an enticement to try to get in (I doubt $2,400 is much of an enticement).

And, I am still a believer in setting up a repatriation fund here in the US because I think it will be less costly in the long run (by not putting them on welfare) and I believe there are legal refugees who either came as asylum seekers or were placed in your cities by the US State Department who are profoundly unhappy and want to go home.  We should help them do so.

The story is at Press TV (Iranian TV) so I found the comments there informative (be sure to check those out). Several readers said if the UK stopped meddling in civil wars in Syria and elsewhere, the UK wouldn’t have the problem. Huh?  So I’m all for trying it!  Let the UK (and the US) stay out of the Middle East, let the Middle East take care of the Middle East! And we can take care of our countries first (America First) and let them kill each other without our help!

From Press TV:

The government of British Prime Minister Theresa May offers refugees £2000 to get them to leave the country, as it’s under mounting pressure to tackle the refugee crisis, a new report says.

The government confirmed that it has been offering £2,000 of taxpayers’ cash to “assist” return payments to each refugee, who accepts to leaves the UK, The Express reported Saturday.

The Home office said a total of 529 people have been paid the money since the government implemented the plan in January this year. It said the money is paid to help those returning to “find somewhere to live, find a job or start a business in their home country.”

According to figures, the UK faces the highest asylum claims since 2004, Home Office officials said.

By the way, clearly such a strategy comes with rules—like they can’t come back without some serious penalty!

    It’ll be cheaper and will detour future freeloaders from coming if you would use the military to move them out.


  6. it’s only fair,right? We did pay for them to come here. i’m sure it will cost much less in the long run. maybe even the 12:1 ratio of supporting them in safe zones. i wonder though if they retain their status for a return visit.

    So what’s to prevent them from taking the money and not leaving or leaving and then coming back? As we have seen here in the US the illegals that do get deported just keep coming back.

      Clearly someone has to be enforcing the laws. If Hillary is elected we are finished, no laws will be enforced. And, ideas like this one will never be debated. It is an idea that can only be possible if we elect a government willing to protect us.
