#DoubleStandard When it's okay to pay 'migrants' to leave and when it's not
Norway is offering large sums of money (80,000 Kroner - some $9,300) and free plane tickets to 'migrants' (Muslims) to leave
“They thought that when they came to Norway they would get protection
rather quickly. And that they would have the opportunity to work or take
an education – and maybe even to get their family to Norway,” Katinka
Hartmann, head of the The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration’s
(Utlendingsdirektoratet - UDI) return unit, told broadcaster NRK.
But with family reunification application processing times taking
years, many have decided that they don’t want to wait and have applied
for financial assistance to return home.
According to UDI, over 900 people have applied to leave Norway with
financial support from the state. A family with two children can receive
upwards of 80,000 kroner ($9,300 or 8,600 euros) in addition to having
their airline tickets bought by the state.
The number of applications is on the rise, according to the Norwegian
division of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which
processes the requests.
“Earlier this year, the number was an average of 100 per month. In
October, there were 150 and in November there were 230 applications,”
IOM spokesman Joost van der Aalst told NRK.
He said that the long family reunification times were a major factor,
but many people were also put off by having to live in remote areas
where they feel it is difficult to put their work experience to use.
You might remember another country
where they wanted to pay migrants to leave, and might have even considered paying migrants who had been in the country for many years to leave. Of course, that country was blasted by its leftist media, by its own legislator
s, and by its Supreme Court, along with 'human rights watch
' and other 'human rights' groups. Can you guess what country was blasted for trying to get illegal immigrants to leave? I knew you could....
