Irish government to pay immigrants to go home
Recession-crippled Republic offers cash to non-EU nationals who agree to leave country
Henry McDonald, The Observer, Sunday November 15, 2009
Ireland is offering money to immigrants to leave the recession-crippled Republic. The Irish Department of Justice has confirmed that it is opening an EU-funded project to persuade foreign workers and asylum seekers to return to their country of origin.
A spokeswoman told the Observer this weekend that the scheme will only apply to non-EU nationals living in the Republic and would involve the department spending almost â‚¬600,000 this year to pay for immigrants and their families to return to nations outside the European Union.[more]
Why doesn't the US try this? It will always be cheaper to buy someone a ticket to a foreign country than to support them in the United States. Ireland has also abolished birthright citizenship. See also A Buyout Option For Europe's Muslims?, By Steve Sailer, November 6, 2005.
