Asylum seekers are going back to their homelands for holidays

Despite claiming to be persecuted in their home countries, more and more asylum seekers living in Germany or Switzerland are travelling back to their homelands for holidays using taxpayer money.

The German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has said they are aware of more cases of asylum seekers travelling back to the countries they are fleeing. Office refuse to keep any statistics on the subject so no exact figures can be known. The Federal Police, who also do not keep any statistics, say that the problem is “not isolated” indicating the phenomenon may be pervasive.

But in Switzerland there is statistics and it reveals close to 50,000 applications are made by migrants with the vast majority being approved. This proves that many of them are only economic migrants.
