Skip to comments.Norway to pay asylum seekers extra to return home
Posted on 04/25/2016 12:39:24 PM PDT by StCloudMoose
Norwegian authorities are set to pay about 10,000 kroner (US$1,200) to asylum seekers willing to leave the country voluntarily. Oslo says the measure is less expensive than keeping refugees in immigration centers in the country. The scheme starts this Monday and will run for six weeks, the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (Utlendingsdirektoratet - UDI) said, as cited by broadcaster NRK. The money will be paid to the first 500 asylum seekers who apply for voluntary return to their home countries.
We need to entice more [people] to voluntarily travel back by giving them a bit more money on their way out. This will save us a lot of money because it is expensive to have people in the asylum centers, Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug said.
Listhaug said she hopes this project will be successful and will support those who return to their homeland voluntarily.
There are also many who are not entitled to protection and, by all means, are going to be rejected. It's better for us to stimulate their travel back
, she added.
Put them on a C-130. Land in the Syrian desert. Remove.
OK, so we all buy round trip tickets from the US to Norway. Found a round trip with 3 week advance purchase Chicago/Oslo for around $400.
Spend $400 on airfare, claim refugee, get free food and board, get $1,200 to leave.
Repeat every week!
Put them out on that island where the Norwegian AF “mistakenly” shot at the control tower. That would send the foreigners packing home and save the taxpayers’ $$$$$.
Hey, it ain’t much, but it’s a livin’.....
True, but if you’re a college student, why pay for a trip to Europe when they can pay you? :)
Why don’t they just kick their Muslim asses into a convenient fijord?
An advertised limited number of free one-way tickets were offered for a limited time to anyone in the Astrodome. It emptied out in three weeks. Best money the city ever spent.
How about Argentinian helicopter rides..?
My guess is that this will work as well as paying criminals to not commit crimes.
If they where actual refugees. They couldn’t return home.
Their admitting they were never refugees.
