Finland follows Sweden’s lead and announces it will expel 20,000 of the 32,000 migrants who arrived in 2015

Finland has joined Sweden in announcing plans to repatriate tens of thousands of migrants whose asylum requests will likely be rejected.

The two Nordic countries are both struggling to cope with with an unprecedented influx of refugees and migrants fleeing war and misery in the Middle East and elsewhere, and they receive among the highest number of arrivals per capita in the EU.

The Finnish government said it expect to deport around 20,000 of the 32,000 asylum-seekers it received in 2015.

    Does Norway even have 200 bureacrats dedicated to deporting muslim invaders?

    • Actually Norway has been very good at deporting “refugees”.

    Ben Carson’s idea of housing refugees in camps in the middle east makes some sense.

    I love a good deportation story. Of course it would be easier to keep them out in the first place, but the whole EU thing has been a security screw-up, plus Merkelization of course.
