I’m telling you this news from Germany because this is a big problem in the US as well.
When someone is approved for refugee status they have sworn they will be persecuted if returned to their home country, so how can they just pop off to that same country for a holiday?
It happens all the time with ‘refugees’ in the US—the Bosnians traveled back and forth after being admitted by the tens of thousands to the US under Bill Clinton, but most famously the Somalis do it all the time.
Remember we learned here in January that Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar traveled back to the Somalia she said she escaped as a child refugee.
Now it appears that Germany may be going to get serious about the traveling-home-for-the-holidays scam!

Germany To Strip Asylum Status of ‘Refugees’ Who Go Home on Holiday
German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has announced the government will be cracking down on Syrians with asylum status who go on holiday back to Syria.
Bavarian centre-right leader Horst Seehofer said that the government would be looking to strip Syrians who visit their home country on holiday of their asylum status, saying that those who regularly travel to the country cannot make a serious claim that they are being persecuted there, Kronen Zeitung reports.
“We have to deprive them of their refugee status,” Seehofer added and said that the Interior Ministry was monitoring any such activity from Syrians with refugee status living in Germany.
The revelations of asylum seekers and refugees making holidays in their home countries — where they allegedly fled persecution — are not a new development. As early as January of 2017 it was shown that asylum seekers in Switzerland were using welfare cash to go on vacations to Eritrea, despite claiming they risked death if they were ever sent back to the country.
Earlier this year, noted Syrian refugee blogger Aras Bacho complained that he would like to go and visit Syria this summer but was unable to and said he knew at least six other Syrians who want for a holiday in Syria.
“Unfortunately, I was unable to go on holiday to Syria because something very important got in the way, and I hope to catch up very soon during the holidays. Germany is stressful and you need some kind of break,” he said.
I guess you’ve seen the news that dear old Deutschland might be headed into a recession.
Wonder if admitting a million needy (mostly Muslim) refugees in a few short years had anything to do with it?
