UK is now to PAY failed asylum seekers to move to Rwanda (Telegraph report)


Recommended Posts

I can't see the logic behind this idea. If someone claims asylum, their claim succeeds if they prove they are fleeing death or persecution. If it fails, they are deemed illegal immigrants and returned to their country of origin. But under this new scheme, they will be paid to go to Rwanda instead of going home. As they are not in danger, they can go to Rwanda, return to France, do it again and get another 3k. If you live in a country where the monthly salary is $50, it is a good career move- pop into the UK to get 3000 GDP every few months.

I can see the logic: that since Rwanda has only agreed to take 300 immigrants in total, and the scheme would thus collapse after a year, under this new scheme we could rotate the same immigrants forever, but it would get very expensive. It has already been costed at £1.9 million per asylum seeker, so adding £3000 each time they re-arrive just adds costs.

If there was only some way we could be part of our own continent, Europe, and take back our country.

Failed asylum seekers are to be offered up to £3,000 to move to Rwanda under a new voluntary scheme.

The plan, first reported by The Times, is understood to be a variation of an existing voluntary returns scheme, where failed asylum seekers receive cash to return to their home country.

It will be open to anyone whose asylum claim has been rejected by the UK.

In particular, it is targeted at those who cannot return to their home countries.
