A shocking investigation has revealed many asylum seekers are returning to their homeland, despite claiming their lives would be “threatened” if they were forced to return home.

Four out of five Eritreans in Switzerland are claiming state benefits.
The revelation reinforces the growing problem caused by the fact refugees are allowed to leave the country for 21 days a year, but are not obliged to say where they are going.
The investigation, carried out by Swiss-German newspaper BaZ, revealed how dozens of Eritrean families arrived at Zurich-Kloten airport to travel home.
Many have travel vouchers as refugees or as temporary residents, who can stay in Switzerland despite a rejected asylum application.
However, their trip does not lead directly to Eritrea because such flights are not available from Zurich, but to Istanbul.
From there, they travel to the Sudanese capital Khartoum or to the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, according to boarding cards seen by BaZ.
There are up to fifty people leaving Switzerland daily and flying to a neighbouring country of Eritrea, the investigation found. In Sudan or Ethiopia, the Eritreans will then get on a bus, which will take them to their home within a few days.
There are also flights from Khartoum, which land in the Eritrean capital Asmara after an hour.
Outward and return flights via Istanbul cost around 650 francs during the most busy season in summer. Currently they are available for 599 francs.
The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) said it was difficult to determine who was going to Eritrea through a neighbouring country because there are no direct flights.
Talk about corruption! This is exactly what I'm talking about when I say that Third Worlders take advantage of the generosity of Aryan countries - including the USA.
This is why we must close off our borders. We have been taken advantage of way too much and it's about time we looked after our own people first.
And for those lucky enough to be allowed to immigrate, they must leave their old lives and families behind. You're either one of us or one of them. You can't be both.
