A new case of an invader who used a fake passport to enter and claim “refuge” in Britain—and who is now being given thousands in cash by the state as a reward—has showcased the utterly fraudulent nature of the “asylum” swindle being perpetrated on race-blind Europeans.
The case involves an invader, named as Mohammad Aabouss, who spoke openly to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper about how he swindled his way into Britain, flying in on a commercial flight from Dortmund, Germany.
Aabouss, who claims he is a Syrian from Aleppo, told the Sun that he had paid £300 (US$ 368) for the fake passport and had used it to fly into Stansted airport on a commercial flight from Germany.
He told the newspaper: “I was amazed it was so easy. I could have been a terrorist. I was desperate to get here but amazed they let me in.
“If it was that easy for me imagine how easy it would be for a terrorist with more finances and more sophisticated methodology.”
Aabouss said he and his family invaded Europe in 2015, and headed directly for Calais after deciding that they wanted to live in Britain.
“We decided I had to get to the UK, seek asylum then get my family here too,” he said.
He then approached smugglers in the Calais Jungle and was offered a U.K. passport—apparently a genuine one—for £300.
“I assumed it would cost thousands and had no chance,” he told the Sun. “But to my great surprise the smuggler said he’d got me a special price, £300. I looked at the passport owner’s photo. He looked similar to me with the same short brown, thinning hair and light skin.”
The only problem, he added, was that the man looked ten years older.
“But I was desperate so I handed over the money. The man advised me to go to Germany then fly to the UK because few migrants used that route. I spent the rest of my savings on a rail fare to Dortmund and Ryanair ticket to Stansted.”
The passport triggered alarms on facial recognition scanners, the newspaper reported. A border control officer at the airport appeared not to care, and only asked Aabouss from which city he had flown.
When told by the invader that he had come from Dortmund, the officer “thanked him and let him through.”
Once through border control, Aabouss then burned the passport and took public transport to the Home Office’s major “asylum” processing office in Croydon, south London, where he lodged an asylum claim.
As a result of this claim, Aabouss now gets free accommodation, free meals three times a day, weekly cash payments—and the right to bring over his wife and two children.
According to the U.K. government’s website, an “asylum seeker” will get £36.95 per week per person in his or her household.
This means that Aabouss will soon get £147 (US $180) per week—or around £600 (US $738) cash per month, plus accommodation and meals, as a reward for having broken the immigration laws and entering the country fraudulently.
This adds up to over £7,200 per year—but this is only the tip of the iceberg as far as handouts go, because Aabouss and his family will qualify for thousands more in other benefits.
The U.K. Government website goes on to list the handouts given to these swindlers:
You may get free National Health Service (NHS) healthcare, e.g. to see a doctor or get hospital treatment.
You’ll also get:
free prescriptions for medicine
free dental care for your teeth
free eyesight tests
help paying for glasses
Your children must attend school if they are aged 5 to 17. All state schools are free and your children may be able to get free school meals.
Extra money for mothers and young children
You’ll get extra money to buy healthy food if you’re pregnant or a mother of a child under 3. The amount you get will depend on your situation.
You can apply for a one-off £300 maternity payment if your baby is due in 8 weeks or less, or if your baby is under 6 weeks old.
If you’ve been refused asylum
You can apply for a one-off £250 maternity payment if your baby is due in 8 weeks or less or if you baby is under 6 weeks old.
Applying for the maternity grant
You apply for the maternity grant in the same way whether you’re still an asylum seeker or you’ve been refused asylum.
If you get pregnant after you’ve applied for asylum support, you can apply to the support team that dealt with your application for asylum support.
All of this, and more, Aabouss and his family now will qualify for—despite his open use of fraud, deception, and lies to enter Britain.
- Incredibly, the U.K. Government website adds that “If you’ve been refused asylum, you’ll be given somewhere to live, and £35.39 per person on a payment card for food, clothing and toiletries.” In other words, even if Aabouss’s “asylum” application is rejected, he will earn only slightly less than if he qualifies, and will be able to appeal and legally contest the denial of his application.
