Here is the news being reported everywhere in the last couple of day….
So, if they were all escaping the Syrian regime and it is still in place, why return? Truth is they weren’t all running from Assad, but from rebels and ISIS.
How about a hotline for unhappy refugees to call in to the Department of State to get help to go home?
From Qasioun News:
Agencies (Qasioun) – The U.N. refugees agency UNHCR said that nearly half a million Syrian refugees have returned to their homes since the beginning of the year.
Andrej Mahecic, UNHCR spokesman said that humanitarian agencies recorded a “notable trend of spontaneous returns to and within Syria in 2017, with more than 440,000 internally displaced people going back to their homes in the first six months of this year.
Another 31,000 refugees have come back from foreign countries in the same period, particularly from Turkey, where authorities agreed to open the borders to allow thousands of people to celebrate the end of Ramadan with their families. Some of these refugees will opt to return to Turkey, but others will stay, according to local media reports. In total, 260,000 refugees have gone back to Syria from neighboring countries since 2015.
Most people returned to the cities of Aleppo, Hama, Homs and Damascus, over which the government has taken back control from the rebels. The reasons for their return vary: Some are looking for their missing relatives, others want to find out what’s left of their belongings and others think the security situation has improved enough for them to come home to live.
You will never hear this!
As time goes on and if the Syrian situation improves, the US Department of State (and its contractors) will never report how many Syrians resettled in America, at great expense to the US taxpayer, will opt to go home to Syria!
In fact, I previously heard from unhappy Iraqis that they wanted to go home after finding out that the streets are not paved with gold in America.
I think Wrapsnet should keep data on refugees who leave America to go home!
See my post: “Syrians are opportunists” from August 2015, here.
I guess the refugee industry must soon find some new poster children to use as propaganda for their open borders agenda!
