500,000 Syrian ‘refugees’ return home to Syria in the last 6 months!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2017

Here is the news being reported everywhere in the last couple of day….

So, if they were all escaping  the Syrian regime and it is still in place, why return?  Truth is they weren’t all running from Assad, but from rebels and ISIS.

From Qasioun News:

Agencies (Qasioun) – The U.N. refugees agency UNHCR said that nearly half a million Syrian refugees have returned to their homes since the beginning of the year.

Andrej Mahecic, UNHCR spokesman said that humanitarian agencies recorded a “notable trend of spontaneous returns to and within Syria in 2017, with more than 440,000 internally displaced people going back to their homes in the first six months of this year.

Another 31,000 refugees have come back from foreign countries in the same period, particularly from Turkey, where authorities agreed to open the borders to allow thousands of people to celebrate the end of Ramadan with their families. Some of these refugees will opt to return to Turkey, but others will stay, according to local media reports. In total, 260,000 refugees have gone back to Syria from neighboring countries since 2015.

Most people returned to the cities of Aleppo, Hama, Homs and Damascus, over which the government has taken back control from the rebels. The reasons for their return vary: Some are looking for their missing relatives, others want to find out what’s left of their belongings and others think the security situation has improved enough for them to come home to live.

You will never hear this!

As time goes on and if the Syrian situation improves, the US Department of State (and its contractors) will never report how many Syrians resettled in America, at great expense to the US taxpayer, will opt to go home to Syria!

In fact, I previously heard from unhappy Iraqis that they wanted to go home after finding out that the streets are not paved with gold in America.

I think Wrapsnet should keep data on refugees who leave America to go home!

See my post: “Syrians are opportunists” from August 2015, here.

I guess the refugee industry must soon find some new poster children to use as propaganda for their open borders agenda!

  1. Ann, Thank you for your meticulous posts.I read them daily and post them on FB and twitter. Yes you should be helping shape Trump’s views and actions. Shame on them for not tapping you! Any chance we can get more Syrians to go home? Can we add Somali and other cantankerous peoples too?


  2. Yes, every refugee should click their heels three times and chant, “THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME…….THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME…..THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME…….” ;-D


  3. I wonder how many of the “refugees” from Central and South America still want to go “home.” Funny how often I hear the ones who’ve lived here for years still refer to Ecuador or Guatemala as “my home.”

    It’s all about a takeover and if the democrats were in office right now, we would be a mis;im nation in o time flat! Whites would be totally discriminated against and we would be forced out of our own country, which may end up happening anyway.


  5. I agree, they were not running from Assad. But I also wonder how many of them are also part of a cleverly organized Hijra and just used the violence in Syria as an excuse to get into Europe and USA. Otherwise, there would be no justification for thousands of them at a time to be streaming into Italy and France and Germany and USA ! Under any other circumstances it would have been perceived as INVASION, and therefore, “an act of War”.

      You are exactly right, at another time in history the migration to Europe would be recognized for what it is—an invasion!

  6. I think it’s in something I read that President Trump wanted – anyone returning to Country of origin could NOT come back to the USA if they had refugee status. Great idea! imagine how sensible that sounds!
