Invasion of Europe news….
This story from Sweden highlights a question we have too?
If Somalis are so fearful of persecution in Somalia that they expect refugee status in first world countries, why are they traveling back there (to their supposedly dangerous homeland) for business and pleasure?
Heck, Somalis in America are doing it too! We have a Somali woman in Minnesota running for the presidency of Somalia, and we have the UN sending Somalis out of UN camps and back home to Somalia, so why should any western country need to take in one more Somali to partake of welfare generosity in places like Sweden and the US?
Here is the news from Speisa.com where we learn that Sweden has at least 50,000 Somalis living in the country (hat tip: Joanne):
Mohamed Husein came to Sweden from Somalia in 2009, along with his wife who claimed she was attacked by terrorists in their homeland.
Mohamed is now unhappy that he can not fill in an application for Swedish citizenship yet. He is eager to able to travel back to the country he claims to have fled, where his life supposedly is in danger – to visit his mother and establish business contacts.
– I can not travel outside the EU and I can not visit my mother in Somalia, says Mohamed.
He explains that with a Swedish citizenship, he would be able to develop an export and import company.
To most readers the obvious obvious question should be – why should Mohamed be given Swedish citizenship in two years if he believes that he can travel back to Somalia now?
And Mohamed is not unique. Approximately 9 out of 10 who are granted asylum in Sweden do not meet the conventional criteria to be classified as refugees.
Many regularly travel back to the country they claim to have fled.
Last year about 1000 Somalis were stranded in Mogadishu, after their tour operator, Fly Olympic, suddenly went bankrupt when they were on holiday in Somalia, from Sweden.
