You apply for asylum. You claim your life is in danger in your homeland. Local activists berate politicians until they say yes. And then you, the refugee, needing a break from your western hosts, take a holiday…in your home country.
Germany (of all places) has decided that it has had enough of that.
Bavarian centre-right leader Horst Seehofer said that the government would be looking to strip Syrians who visit their home country on holiday of their asylum status, saying that those who regularly travel to the country cannot make [a] serious claim that they are being persecuted there.
It’s not limited to Germany.
The Swiss newspaper notes that thousands of migrants each year are heading to Eritrea for their holidays each year despite their having supposedly fled the northeast African nation in fear of their lives.
I suspect that a passing analysis of “refugees” and ‘Asylees’ will find evidence of significant cases of the same.
Meanwhile, here in the US, we are being invaded by so-called asylum seekers whose motivation is a promise of free stuff. But it’s not free. You and I are paying for it, like the Swiss, and the Germans.
At some point, someone has to have compassion for the hard-working men and women who would invest their earning in local needs. For homeless Americans or veteran care. Instead of having it plundered to pay for “refugees” whose hardship was the lack of free goodies back home.
