THE NEW EUROPE: “Refugees” Given Priority at Hospitals, Free Train Tickets, Free Museum Visits
In many European nations “refugees” are given special treatment over native citizens.
In Austria “refugees” are given priority for hospital visits.
Via The Local:
The reason is that many asylum seekers need expensive translators to help communicate with doctors, and officials do not want to pay for the translators to sit around waiting.
The problem was highlighted last week when large numbers of people turned up at hospitals because of a flu epidemic, and had to wait to see doctors whilst asylum seekers were given priority treatment.
As part of the asylum process, refugees get a health check. With 90,000 asylum seekers registered last year, this has put a huge strain on health resources.
Austrian officials have confirmed that they have been ordered not to make asylum seekers wait and to give them fast track treatment.
France offered free train rides for migrants looking to reach Great Britain.
SNCF, France’s government-owned rail operator, sent an internal memo to staff telling them to hand out “zero-euro bookings” to gangs of migrants who turn up at stations without tickets.
