Pure fraud, and help from government officials and leaders that have exacerbated the problem in cheap PR stunts to show how PC and humane they are.
Four out of five migrants are NOT from Syria: EU figures expose the ‘lie’ that the majority of refugees are fleeing war zone
Between April and June, 213,000 asylum seekers arrived on the continent – up dramatically on last year when just 115,000 made it to the EU. However, just 44,000 of the total number of asylum seekers came from war-ravaged Syria, the Brussels statistics body Eurostat said today.
While the numbers of Syrians refugees looking for protection in Europe ‘rose considerably’, according to Eurostat, the figures mean four out of five asylum seekers are from elsewhere in the world. There were 27,000 asylum seekers from Afghanistan alone, this morning’s figures reveal. Asylum seekers from Eritrea made the highest number of applications to live in the UK.
