Skip to comments.Switzerland: Over 80 Percent of Somali Migrants on Welfare
Posted on 01/12/2020 9:31:12 AM PST by grundle
According to newly released data, several migrant groups of different national origins in Switzerland have welfare dependency rates well above 50 per cent, with over 80 per cent of Somalis in the country taking state handouts.
The data was gathered and released by both the Federal Statistical Office and the State Secretariat for Migration and shows that the 4,000 or so Somalis in Switzerland are by far the most prone to being on government benefits with 83.7 per cent relying on state income, 20 Minutes reports.
While Somalis are by far and wide the largest recipients of welfare, several other nationalities also have rates of over 50 per cent, such as Eritreans at 54.7 per cent and Angolans at 54 per cent.
The statistics greatly contrast with the number of Swiss nationals on welfare, at a mere 2.3 per cent of the population although Japanese nationals were the lowest of all at only 0.6 per cent.

Less on welfare than the ones in the US?
Why am I not surprised?
Wow. Didnt see that coming. /S
What did you expect?
You know for such smart people, the Swiss can really be dumb, sometimes.
Idiots, what did they think would happen?
This is what Trump wants to prevent, which the communists are going foaming-at-the-mouth insane over.
Switzerland: Over 80 Percent of Somali Migrants on Welfare
If they would ask Bloomberg, dumb as he is, he would tell them to bring in more.
How is 150% even possible?
Rampant welfare fraud is how
/s for the sarcasm impaired
In America, its more like 150% of Somali refugees are on welfare, maybe more.
How is 150% even possible?

It doesn’t specify how many of them are planning jihad in Europe...and elsewhere.
Eritreans. Had to look that one up :)
They “feel bad” for the less fortunate in the world.
That’s a LIE!
They’re all on welfare.
The Brits have a word for people like this: layabouts.
Why are you letting them into Switzerland? Are you as dumb as Minnesota?
I used to be concerned about these literal idiots but now that I see they think they are entitled to be spoon fed for life by those who can function, I don't want them anywhere near western society. Don't think the Chinese, Japanese etc. want them either.
And they're also muslims. What could possibly be the problem?
MINN SOMALIS STEAL $300 MILLION TAX DOLLARSThe Worst Scandal In Minnesota History?

Fox 9 television uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa: This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms. Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.
Where does the money come from, and where is it going? It was coming from Hawalas, businesses used to courier money to countries that have no official banking system.Some immigrant communities rely on Hawalas to send funds to help impoverished relatives back home.
[Former Seattle police detective Glen] Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group.
But the real scandal is where the money came from in the first placewelfare fraud:As Kerns dug deeper, he found that some of the individuals who were sending out tens of thousands of dollars worth of remittance payments happened to be on government assistance in this country. How could they possibly come up with such big bucks to transfer back home? We had sources that told us, Its welfare fraud, its all about the daycare, said Kerns. *** Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.
Its a great way to make some money, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers falsely signed up low income Somali Muslim families that qualify for child care assistance funding.Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.
Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.Video from that same case shows a man handing out envelopes of what are believed to be kickback payments to parents who are in on the fraud. Evidently welfare fraud in various forms is widespread in Minnesotas Somali immigrant community. This is, I think, generally known, but the scale of fraud disclosed here is astonishing:
We believe that theres a scope of fraud out there that we really need to get our arms around and ensure that those dollars are going to kids that really need them, Acting Commissioner for the Department of Human Services Chuck Johnson said.
He told the Fox 9 Investigators his agency has 10 daycares currently under active investigation for fraud. Fox 9 has learned dozens more are considered suspicious. Search warrants obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators show each one of the suspect centers has received several million dollars in childcare assistance funds.
According to public records and government sources, most are owned by Somali immigrants. *** Sources in the Somali community told Fox 9 it is an open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money.
The fraud is so widespread they said, that people buy shares of daycare businesses to get a cut of the huge public subsidies that are pouring in. Government insiders believe this scam is costing the state at least a hundred million dollars a year, half of all child care subsidies.
A friend who saw this news story wrote: This has me more angry than Ive been since the 2011 tax increase on the rich aka, working families. I cant put into words how utterly incompetent you must be to not have a checks and balances in place for tax payer funded programs, the tax payer dollars that people like myself and millions others diligently pay quarterly, leaving our children in childcare to work and provide for our families, pay taxes, only to have this hard work fund bogus programs that somehow are funding the same terrorist activities meant to harm our country?!!! Unbelievable. The commissioner and employees responsible for overseeing this mess should pay, every single one of them they should be fired they didnt do their job.
Her outrage is appropriate, but perhaps misguided. I suspect that many of Minnesotas liberals think that our bureaucrats performed their jobs very well: they siphoned off hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to finance liberal constituenciesthe principal purpose of government, according to our lib friends.
So, how dumb are we? We need to totally revamp both our immigration policies and our welfare system to guard against these Somali migrant crooks.
