Invasion of Europe news…..
Update October 16th: Norway says it will send Syrians back to Russia, here.
This story reminded me of the post we wrote in August about a Syrian woman saying that many Syrians are just “opportunists!”
Here, The Daily Caller reports on a NY Times article about the latest wave of Syrians this time making their way through Russia.
LOL! most likely encouraged by Putin (is he buying the bikes?) because he doesn’t want a huge Muslim population in Russia.
By the way, remember! legitimate asylum seekers are to request asylum in the first safe country they reach. Asylum law was never intended to promote “asylum shopping” which is exactly what is being encouraged in Europe now where phony refugees are looking for the best deal they can get—Norway in this case!
Staying in Russia is not an option for these Syrians….
I’m guessing this route is going to be closed as the winter sets in!
Some Syrians living peacefully in Russia are taking advantage of the migrant crisis to seek asylum in Europe by way of a newly popular route into Norway.
“Syrian citizenship generally confers Refugee status in Europe,” notes Andrew Higgins of The New York Times, in a report about the exploding popularity of a route from Russia into northern Norway. Some Syrians already living in Russia are now using that route to pop across the border and claim asylum they normally might not be granted.
They see the path across the Russian border with Norway as a newly available opportunity for “a better life,” reported the Times. The outpost they’re heading for is 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
