Conclusive proof that all Afghans claiming “asylum” in Europe and elsewhere are perpetrating a massive confidence trick and are not genuine refugees has come with the news that the United Nations and the European Union have together launched a $20 million (€18m) project to help “returnees” settle in after going back to Afghanistan.
The plan, announced on the website of the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration (IOM), will run for a four-year period with funding from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO).
The aim of the project is, according to the IOM, to “support returnees and host communities across Afghanistan.”
The project will “help foster sustainable reintegration by promoting economic development in communities of high return, building the capacity of government bodies working on migration and providing post-arrival assistance for returnees.”
Specific areas are mentioned by name: “Communities in Kabul, Herat, Nangarhar, Balkh, Kandahar, Baghlan, Uruzgan and Laghman will be targeted,” the announcement continued.
What this in effect means is that Afghanistan is perfectly safe and there is no reason at all for any of that country’s nationals to be claiming refugee status anywhere.
Despite this fact, Afghans made up the second largest number of invaders claiming to be refugees in Europe during 2016, according to official figures released by the European Commission.
In the last three months of 2016 alone, some 62,100 Afghans falsely claimed asylum in Europe, all pouring in to take advantage of European liberals who refuse to acknowledge that their own E.U. organization and the U.N. say that there is no reason for Afghans to flee in the first place.
According to the IOM’s Chief of Mission and Special Envoy in Afghanistan, Laurence Hart, the “joint collaboration [between the E.U. and the U.N.] marks a critical and much needed step towards providing longer-term, sustainable, income-generating solutions and livelihoods for returnees.”
The IOM will complete a “series of community development initiatives in areas of high return,” which will include “small-scale infrastructure and income-generating projects in a number of different sectors, including agricultural rehabilitation, irrigation and canal cleaning, rural development, handicrafts, and providing equipment and supplies for public institutions and commercial spaces such as markets.”
In addition, the IOM will “also support 1,000 technical and vocational education and training initiatives and skills development activities in the target project sites, and provide financial assistance to approximately 40 existing micro/small businesses.”
Furthermore, the project “will offer vital information to returnees and potential labor migrants through the establishment of Returnee Information Centers (RICs) in key locations,” the IOM statement said.
The RICs will serve as a “one-stop shop” offering counseling and information on assistance for returnees as well as safe migration. Over the course of the project, IOM will work to build the capacity of the Afghan Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation to run RICs and transition them to government-run facilities.
Finally, the project will bolster the capacity of IOM’s existing post-arrival reception assistance for Afghans returning from Europe, providing funding to assist 2,000 returnees.
“Not only will this project have a positive impact on tens of thousands of Afghan returnees and high return communities, it will also serve as a valuable learning platform for creating successful return, reintegration and development interventions in the future,” said Hart.
