With no signs of slowing down, 51,635 mostly Muslim migrant wannabes pretending to be refugees demanded that non-Muslim Europe provide them with food, money, and nice accommodations while they wait to be granted asylum, bringing the total number arriving in Europe over the first nine months of this year to 457,635. And these are just the ones who have been counted, not the ones who snuck in illegally.
New Observer Countries of origin for the majority include Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Turkey. (Gee, I didn’t realize that Iran and Turkey had become war-torn countries)
According to the latest “Asylum applications in the EU” figures issued by the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), the 51,635 “applications for international protection” was a similar total as in August, and that the total for the year so far was only 14 percent less than during the same period of 2017.
Applications lodged by self-claimed unaccompanied minors (UAMs) accounted for about 3% of the total, and one -third of these UAMs originated from just three countries: Afghanistan (14 percent of the total), Eritrea (9 percent) and Pakistan (9 percent).
More than half of all applications were lodged by ten citizenships, including Syrian, Afghan, Iraqi, Iranian, Turkish, Pakistani, Albanian, Nigerian, Venezuelan and Russian citizens. (These “Russians” are mainly from the south around Chechnya, the heavily Muslim area of Russia)
EU countries issued 46,721 decisions at first instance in September, some 2,000 more than in August, and the second consecutive month with increasing numbers. Most of the decisions continued to be issued to applicants from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria and Pakistan, together accounting for 40 percent of all first-instance decisions.
Among citizenships with the most decisions, the highest recognition rates in the past six months were for nationals of Syria (87%), Yemen (87%), Eritrea (81%) and Palestine (75%). (The only war in Palestine is the one the Palestinians keep trying to start with Israel. They are NOT refugees)
Unlike migrants, people are only considered true refugees when they fit within this defition, provided by the UNHCR:
