"EU figures expose the 'lie' that the majority of refugees are fleeing war zone Only some 44,000 of the 213,000 refugees who arrived in Europe were from Syria, the rest were from Islamic countries not affected by war 4 out of every 5 refugees arriving in Europe are NOT from Syria Only one in every five migrants claiming asylum in Europe is from Syria. The EU logged 213,000 arrivals in April, May and June but only 44,000 of them were fleeing the Syrian civil war. Campaigners and left-wing MPs have suggested the vast majority of migrants are from the war-torn state, accusing the Government of doing too little to help them. 'This exposes the lie peddled in some quarters that vast numbers of those reaching Europe are from Syria,' said David Davies, Tory MP for Monmouth. 'Most people who are escaping the war will go to camps in Lebanon or Jordan. 'Many of those who have opted to risk their lives to come to Europe have done so for economic reasons.' Sir Bill Cash, a fellow Tory, said: 'These figures make extremely disturbing reading. The whole argument has been made that this influx is all real refugees from Syria whereas this adds to the substantial evidence that there are a large number of economic migrants who are aiming for a better life.' The figures from Eurostat, the EU's official statistical agency, show that migration from April to June was running at double the level of the same period in 2014. The number of Afghans lodging asylum claims is up four-fold, from 6,300 to 27,000. Another 17,700 claims were made by Albanians, whose country is at peace." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ars-85-year-just-one-five-war-torn-Syria.html Even if Obama doesn't read the UK Daily Mail and doesn't read Eurostat's reports, I have no doubt the NSA and the CIA sent him at least one briefing regarding the issue of fake Syrian refugees. My question for the progressive-fascist Obama arse kissers trolling GT is this: if he already knows 4 out of every 5 Muslim migrants are not Syrian war refugees, but liars who try to make it to Western countries under false pretenses (economic migration, jihad), why does Obama want to bring 200,000 of them here in the US?
