UK paying “refugees” to go home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 17, 2016

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!

This is insane! Taxpayers pay rent for Somalis who feel the need to visit Somalia (for months!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 1, 2016

You cannot make this up! Virtually all Somalis who live in the US came here (we are told) as poor refugees (there are going on 200,000 of them). So how persecuted and fearful of returning home are they if many travel back and forth to Africa and the taxpayers of Minneapolis cover most of their rent while they are gone!

By the way, Somalis are not the only (fake) persecuted and impoverished ‘refugees’ who go ‘home’ for visits from time to time.

This is the story at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Public housing residents in Minneapolis will no longer need to pay their normal monthly rent when travel abroad erases their income, a change particularly sought by East African immigrants.

The board of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority approved this week reverting to its previous policy of collecting only minimal rent during extended absences. The change takes effect once approved by federal housing officials, which is expected by year’s end.


Minnesota Governor Dayton with Warsame. Remember Dayton is the MN pol who said if you don’t like our Somalis, you can move to another state.

Abdi Warsame, a City Council member, told the board that the policy in place for the past five years works a particular hardship on elderly East Africans who must save for long periods if they want to visit their homelands. He said that many receive federal Supplemental Security Income, which is halted when the recipient is outside the United States.

Yet the policy required people to keep paying rent, which is income-based. Travelers gone for 30 to 90 days could apply for a hardship, which meant that they paid the minimum $75 monthly rent during their absence, but were required to make up the difference between that and their normal rent over the next year or two.

The change will mean that residents will pay only the $75 minimum per month, assuming they apply for the hardship status. [Hardship status! Hardship status! How many of you have airfare money to fly to Africa?—ed]

From 50 to 75 public housing residents report such absences annually, according to Mary Boler, an agency manager. She said the cost of the change will be less than $50,000. The agency found that the paperwork burden of tracking repayment was higher than anticipated.

“This was brought up to us again and again and again in every building we visited in our ward,” Warsame said. “Everybody was afraid to leave the country.”  [But they weren’t afraid to go home to Somalia the country they supposedly escaped from???—ed]

We are such suckers!

By the way, one reason given for travel is the Hajj (it lasts 4 days not 30-90 days).

Additionally, I wonder is some Somali community activist group getting grants from the feds like the one in Maine.

Re-Migration! Phony refugees leaving Germany and going home!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….


Hmmm! Re-migration! Maybe that will save my political hide!

Frustrated with the bureaucracy and homesick for their own homes and the culture from which they came are two reasons given for scores of supposedly persecuted people heading back to the Middle East.

And, this story reminds me, and makes me wonder how many refugees being foisted on American towns at this very minute and finding themselves trapped in jobs at meatpacking plants paying low wages, are wishing they could go home too!


I’m still pushing for one reform that Congress could easily make happen and that is to set up a repatriation fund to finance the airfare (and maybe a small bit of start-up money) to help unhappy immigrants leave America and go home! (Are leftwingers and Obama going to want to keep unhappy refugees here? Let’s call their bluff! Is it about humanitarianism or something else?)

But, I digress. Here is the news from Breitbart London:

Migrants in the German capital of Berlin are fed up of waiting for their asylum claim and an increasing number are simply heading back to where they came from.

The State Office for Refugee Affairs (LAF) in Berlin has announced that more and more migrants are choosing to voluntarily repatriate to their countries of origin. The reason for the surge in re-migration is down to the Berlin government’s notoriously long wait times when it comes to processing asylum claims.

The number of migrants leaving Berlin has increased over the last year by over 80 per cent Die Welt reports.

Of those returning, migrants from Iraq are the most common, making up 25 per cent Afghanis are second most common, at 20 per cent.

The origin of the migrants is very similar to those who have chosen to go on holiday back to their home countries at German tax payer expense, as revealed earlier this week. Both the willingness to return, either on holiday, or permanently, has led many to question what the migrants were fleeing in the first place when they came to Germany.

More here.  Some are even re-engaging the original people smugglers who brought them to Europe to get them home again.

Hundreds of Somalis and other Africans coming across US southern border, requesting asylum

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 12, 2016

Invasion of America…..

This is nothing new, it’s been going on for all the years I’ve been writing this blog.  However, I expect the pace has been picking up lately as they fear that Trump might be serious about the wall.

You know that anyone, supposedly impoverished, but with the resources  to travel across the world to get to our border, has to be up to no good.  In fact, since we take thousands (over 8,000 Somalis this year alone) of supposedly legitimate refugees from Africa, my first question is, so why didn’t they apply through regular channels?


So how do the poor, struggling asylum seekers know exactly where to go? Who is instructing them? The same person or persons paying their way?

This latest story is at Breitbart, but first revisit a post I wrote in 2011 in which I said Congress should be doing some serious investigation of the supposedly poor Somalis who know to “make their way” to our border and ask for asylum (who is instructing them? and who is giving them the money for such an expensive trip?).

Where is Congress?

I think Congress isn’t investigating because then you would be alerted to a really really scary security situation not so different than Europe is facing.  Invasion on a smaller scale, but nevertheless an invasion.

Here is Ildefonso Ortiz at Breitbart:

Hundreds of African asylum seekers have flooded Mexican border cities with the U.S. in an effort to get to California and Texas to obtain U.S. asylum — many of the unvetted migrants are from the terror hotbed of Somalia. Rather than having to hide along the way, the African migrants have been getting a special permit from Mexico that gives them a free pass to the U.S. border.

The influx of asylum seekers from African countries who entered Mexico illegally has been building for several weeks as hundreds of individuals continue to arrive primarily to Mexicali to cross into Calexico, California, in order to seek asylum. Mexican immigration authorities have been spotted ferrying the asylum seekers from shelters and plazas to international bridges with the U.S.

Mexican immigration authorities have largely kept quiet about the wave of African migrants who have been entering Mexico through that country’s southern border and then making their way to the U.S. border to seek asylum. Some of the cities they seek include Calexico and San Ysidro, California, and El Paso, Texas.

Continue reading here.

For new readers, asylum is part of the Refugee Admissions Program.  These Africans ask for asylum and then wait for a court date (many of them loose in America). If granted asylum (with the help of dozens and dozens of immigration lawyers wanting to help them) they get the same welfare goodies and a resettlement contractor to help hold their hands through our welfare system and eventually to American citizenship.

Comment worth noting: Refugees are liars in Illinois (and where you live too!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 12, 2016

I’ve been writing about two things lately that come together in this one comment from a regular reader.

Posted to my report Saturday headlined, The big lie: refugees are not being vetted, this is what ‘domstudent11’ reports:

Basic RGB

Ann, they are indeed not being vetted! As a shocking update to the refugee family in my family member’s apartment (Evanston, IL), it turns out that these people LIED to World Relief and the church that sponsored them. They were evicted last week after doing over $4,500 worth of damage to the apartment. When the landlord tried to bill them for repairs, it turned out that EVERY piece of information they gave to World Relief and the church was a LIE. The Evanston Police are now involved. This family has gone underground. So much for vetting. Even the contractors are fooled!

What are the two important points to take away? First, refugees are not being thoroughly vetted (some not vetted at all), and that landlords are increasingly wary of leasing to refugees especially as we learned here, the resettlement contractors dropping them in your towns will not back up the refugees by co-signing their leases (amazing!).

BTW, if the lazy, fearful, complicit Members of Congress really wanted to reform this program they could make some simple fixes (initially) and one would be to make it a law that federal resettlement contractors must co-sign every home or apartment lease when they place refugees. And, make sure damages come from their own meager, privately raised funds (not from more of your tax dollars).

Paris building refugee camps, segregating the sexes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 7, 2016

Invasion of Europe news……


Refugee camp to open in Paris in October.

It isn’t quite this bad here. We don’t have camps yet, but…..  could it happen?

Already housing is short for the tens of thousands of refugees Obama (and the Republican Congress) have admitted this fiscal year.  We still have over 10,000 to squeeze in to America this month (see here)! And, we have tens of thousands of so-called ‘unaccompanied alien children’ to house.

Could we end up with refugee camps in America?

Thanks to Joanne for this story from France at the Huffington Post.  You will have to read it yourself because it won’t allow any snips. The gist of the story is that so many asylum seekers are building make-shift camps that the powers-that-be have decided to build them some nice ones right in Paris.

They are segregating the ‘refugees’ by sex because of all the rape and other sexual abuse going on in refugee housing throughout Europe.

Norway building border fence with Russia, too many refugees coming through arctic

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 26, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

Everybody wants a fence these days!

From the Independent:

Norway is building a steel fence at its arctic border with Russia after an influx of thousands of refugees last year.

Storskog map

The new fence, which will be around 660 feet long and 11 feet high, will stretch from the Skorskog [typo apparently, should be Storskog—ed] border point, sources in the Norwegian government told Reuters.

Construction of the fence is due to finish before winter frosts set in, making it harder to enter Norway through the forest.


Last year, Russia and Norway battled to repeatedly reject the same refugees.

Norway said it would begin sending refugees who have Russian residency permits back to Russia, arguing it had received no “satisfactory” explanation from Russia as to why it sent so many refugees to Norway rather than Finland.

Go here to see the graphic with the huge spike in Syrians claiming asylum in Norway in the last year.

Did Minneapolis Somali woman marry her brother to get him in to US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 20, 2016

Sheesh!  See if you can figure out the marital status of the highly touted first Somali woman to win an important election in Minnesota.

Ilhan supporters cheer

Here is how Leo Hohmann describes the latest twists and turns in the story at World Net Daily:

America’s soon-to-be first female Muslim legislator has a problem on her hands.

She’s accused of being married to two men, at the same time, including one who may be her brother. The second marriage was allegedly a sham, meant to deceive the U.S. government’s immigration system, allowing him to emigrate from the United Kingdom, according to local Minneapolis media.

But Ilhan Omar, a 33-year-old Somali refugee who was the victor in Minnesota’s Aug. 9 Democratic primary, denies the story, issuing a statement calling it “categorically false” and based on “absurd rumors that don’t bear repeating.” She charged those raising the issue are “racists” using “Donald Trump tactics” to drive a wedge between various demographic segments of Minnesota voters.

Continue reading and see if you can figure out what is going on!

History of immigration fraud with Somali refugees

I’m quoted in here about the widespread fraud that saw possibly as many as 20,000 Somalis get in to the US prior to 2008 by lying about their family relationships.  In an episode the US State Department and its resettlement contractors would like to forget, the so-called ‘P-3 family reunification program’ was closed to Somalis and a few other African groups for four years (from 2008-2012).

We have an extensive archive of stories on the scandal, click here for more.

The US State Department never went back to find and deport those who so flagrantly broke US immigration law.

The Khan story reminds me of the food stamp fraud stories that so intrigued me

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 4, 2016

….more investigative work is needed!  And, you can do it!

In the wake of the media fire storm over Donald Trump’s remarks relating to the Khan family, research, like this by Dennis Michael Lynch showed that Khizr Khan has a financial vested interest in helping immigrants get to the US through the little-known Investor Visa programs at the US State Department.

Here is Lynch:

The father of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq, who spoke at the Democrat National Convention, is an immigration lawyer who specializes in a visa program that allows immigrants to effectively buy U.S. citizenship with an E-2 or EB-5 visa.

Khan at DNC

Immigration lawyer Khizr Khan at the DNC convention. If Trump is elected one of the first programs to be investigated is the US DOS Investor Visa programs.

Khizr Kahn has been blasting Donald Trump for wanting to wanting to halt immigration from Muslim nations that have links to terror. Even House Speaker Paul Ryan has jumped on the band wagon, claiming it is wrong to apply a “religious test” for immigrants.

In reality, Trump’s policy on immigration has the potential to impact Kahn financially. Khan’s website states that he helps clients with the E-2 and EB-5 programs, which allow foreign investors to buy into U.S. companies. The programs also provide green cards for family members. The website also states that he assists with purchase of U.S. real estate and businesses.

Continue reading here.   And, as you know Khan’s website has been taken down!  See also Breitbart on the news that the website has been removed.

It is through the Investor Visa program that so many US convenience stores and mom & pop gas stations are being bought up by immigrants.  Go to any seedy neighborhood (like the ones I saw in Toledo recently) and there is an immigrant-run convenience store it seems on every block.  There is no way they are all making a living selling bread, milk and cigarettes.

My guess is that many are participating in what is known as trafficking in food stamps.

For years I followed this fraud issue—-trafficking in food stamps—-and finally had to give it up because so much is happening with the refugee program.

Here is one post I wrote in the spring of 2010 explaining how immigration lawyers, like Khan, not only help the ‘investors’ get in to the US, but very often find them the stores to purchase.  (For the E-2 program only a small investment is necessary to buy in to America.)

Now, I am not saying every store owned by an immigrant is running a food stamp scam, but many are!   And, you will see how many if you type ‘food stamp fraud’ in to RRW’s search window.   You will even find some stories about how US food stamp dollars are sent to Muslim countries as well!

(Let me be clear! I am not saying Khizr Khan knows anything about food stamp trafficking or sending US food stamp dollars out of the country!)

I am, however, now renewing my appeal to any wannabe investigator (amateur or otherwise) to dig into this issue and this issue alone—Investor Visas and Food stamp fraud!—it is huge!

Find the link between the program and stores busted for food stamp fraud!

Germany: Syrian refugees turn murderous over the weekend

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2016

….and it will likely get worse as time goes on!

Invasion of Europe news…..

I’m sure you’ve seen the news over the last day or so, but am posting links for those who haven’t.


German Chancellor Angela Merkel with refugee. This ‘selfie’ should go down in political strategists’ training manuals as an example of what NOT to do with refugees from the Middle East.

First from Reuters (Syrian refugee kills a pregnant woman with a machete):

A 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested on Sunday after killing a pregnant woman with a machete in Germany, the fourth violent assault on civilians in western Europe in 10 days, though police said it did not appear linked to terrorism. [No terrorism, so move along!—ed]

The incident, however, may add to public unease surrounding Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door refugee policy that has seen over a million migrants enter Germany over the past year, many fleeing war in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.

German police said they arrested the machete-wielding Syrian asylum-seeker after he killed a woman and injured two other people in the southwestern city of Reutlingen near Stuttgart.

Continue reading the discussion about Merkel’s open door policy and the political turmoil it is creating in Germany.

Then, over the same weekend, a Syrian suicide bomber explodes his backpack outside of a music event in a Bavarian town. From Russia Today:

Bavarian authorities have announced that the suspected suicide bomber, who was killed in the Ansbach explosion, was a 27-year-old Syrian whose asylum request was rejected last year. The motive behind the attack, which injured 12 people, remains unknown.


The attacker was a 27-year-old Syrian who had entered the country about two years ago, but was refused asylum, Bavarian authorities told a press conference. His application was rejected a year ago but the man was allowed to stay in Germany temporarily, due to ongoing hostilities in Syria.***


The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees will reveal why the suspect’s asylum application had previously been rejected later in the day Herrmann (Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann) noted that those who are “seeking protection in Germany, must show full respect for the German legal system and the German population.”

The minister added that the attack demonstrated the need “to strengthen controls on those we have living in our country”.

Following a press conference, Herrmann told Germany’s DPA, that he personally considers the bombing in Ansbach to have been the work of an Islamist suicide bomber.

“My personal opinion is that, unfortunately I think, it is very obvious that there has been a real Islamist suicide attack here,” Herrmann said early Monday.

Any bets on when Germany will get the big one—like in France or Belgium!

Go here for our archive extending back many years on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’

***By the way, this happens in the US too. If someone is denied asylum, but they come from a country in turmoil, we don’t deport them either!
