Refugees: ‘Austria isn’t what we expected’

An increasing number of asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo are returning to their countries, saying that they had expected better care and a shorter asylum process in Austria.


  • I wonder how many of our Syrians will hightail back?

    • terrence

      they will get WAY too much free stuff to go back

      • Rosenmops

        Some of them will go back still figure out a way to get free stuff from Canada.

    • Canadian

      After they have their teeth and eyes fixed?

      • Exile1981

        And get treated for the std’s they got sharing goats.

    • Clausewitz

      Right after they get their freebie’s, their Canadian Passport, and their right for free health care for the rest of their lives. Pretty much a rehash of all the Lebanese-Canadians we were required to save back 10 or 15 years ago.

      None. Pothead & his pack of fools will make sure they vote for them in next elections.

    Who knew that it would be the E.U.’s insurmountable bureaucracy that would help save us?

  • Ron MacDonald

    They were expected to look for work, that’s not fair in their eyes.

      But they all already have jobs – they will be at work monitoring Aljazeera signal quality.

  • canminuteman

    So they were just freeloaders all along, who knew?

      Hard to take claims of targeted persecution and imminent death seriously when they’re jurisdiction shopping and flying back once or twice a year to visit the family.

  • Refu Gee

    We were expecting at least $100,000 a year per person from the government and our own big free houses.

    They wouldn’t give it to us the racists!

    • Clink9

      And some Austrian version of Obamaphones.

  • Brenda

    A few hundred here and there that go back are nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands that came and keep coming.

  • granny47

    Good riddance!!

  • Jay Currie

    Well played Austria.

  • mauser 98

    where’s my Merc ?

  • Barrington Minge

    Excellent. Good Bye.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Refugees from Kosovo? Are they kidding?

  • Brian Jones

    Aw, I think the problem is the Austrians forgot to give them their free prayer mats: (or whatever the German translation is).
