UN Ambassador Haley: Most Syrians just want to go home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2018

Clearly The Guardian doesn’t want to hear that bit of information.

Frankly, if there weren’t nine federal refugee contractors being paid on a per refugee head basis to bring refugees to your towns and cities, maybe then a realistic policy could be advanced to care for (legitimate) refugees near their homes so that returning them to their homes and to their familiar cultures would be the number one priority of humanitarian care.

Perhaps if this pattern could be broken now—Middle East wars=flow of migrants to the West—it would be a very important legacy for Trump to leave us with.

Trump and Nikki

Trump and Haley could break the pattern! No more knee jerk admission of ‘refugees’ with every Middle East conflict.

Here Nikki Haley says what the No Borders Left never wants to hear:

Donald Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations on Sunday defended the president’s ban on allowing Syrian refugees into the US by claiming that people displaced due to the country’s civil war did not actually want to leave the region.

When asked how she justified the Trump administration admitting almost no Syrian refugees while also bombing Assad regime targets in the country, Nikki Haley cited conversations she said she had had with refugees at camps in Jordan and Turkey.

“Not one of the many that I talked to ever said we want to go to America,” Haley said on Fox News Sunday. “They want to stay as close to Syria as they can.”

In a related story at Hurriyet we see that the bloom is off the rose as Germany begins restricting family members (limiting chain migration!):

Syrians leaving Germany to return to Turkey

A growing number of Syrian refugees in Germany are seeking to return to Turkey as a new German legislation has introduced new barriers to family reunification, local media reported on April 12.

Merkel gloomy with migrants

Even Mama Merkel is beginning to understand limits.

The German government recently imposed stricter measures to curb family reunification for Syrian refugees, many of whom were granted “subsidiary protection.”

German broadcaster ARD reported that its correspondents documented the journey of several Syrian refugees who sought to return to Turkey by paying hundreds of euros to human smugglers.

The refugees wanted to return to Turkey because they could not receive permission from German authorities to bring their family members who had fled to Turkey after the Syrian civil war broke out, the report said.

The EU’s largest economy has accepted more than 700,000 Syrian refugees since 2015, but amid domestic political pressure, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government introduced barriers to family reunification. A cap of 1,000 people per month was imposed on who could come to Germany for family reunification.

  1. Islam is not a Religion. Allah & Muhammad had nothing to do with the Quran or Islam – Islam is founded on Lies & Deception

    Because Islam is provably not a Religion, it can no longer hide behind the Prohibition of Discrimination in respect of Religion.

    It’s time for the United States to DEMAND that the United Nations revises the 1951 Refugee Convention to reflect the new world reality. If the UN turns a deaf ear, then President Trump should WITHDRAW the US from the Refugee accord. He did it with the Global Warming pact with G7 nations, he can do it again.
