    Syrian Migrants Arrive in Iceland

    A group of 23 Syrian quota refugees, that is, refugees invited to Iceland by the State, arrived in the country yesterday, Morgunblaðið reports. These are young families - 13 children and ten adults. The people then traveled to Hvammstangi, Northwest Iceland, where they will settle.



    Another group, a total of 20 people, adults and children, is expected to arrive in the country today. They will settle in the town of Blönduós, also in Northwest Iceland, except for one family, who will be living in Árborg, South Iceland, due to connections the people have there. Shortly, a family of another six people is expected to arrive in Blönduós.

    All in all, 49 quota refugees are arriving these days, while the total number of quota refugees coming this year is 75.

    According to Linda Rós Alfreðsdóttir, specialist in refugee issues for the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Syrian refugees have been staying in Lebanon in recent years, a country with an area of only a tenth of that of Iceland, where six million people reside, 20 percent of whom are refugees. Linda reports that refugee camps are not allowed in Lebanon, so the refugees oftentimes live in poor conditions, in rooms or sheds they rent, some of which have been put up on rooftops.

    “These refugees come to us through the UN Refugee Agency,” Linda states. “We contract with municipalities and the Red Cross to receive the people. They are secured housing, basic utilities and such. The municipalities have done a good job, and it’s safe to say that this has gone well in Iceland.”

    A delegation was sent from Iceland to Lebanon, where they familarized themselves with conditions and interviewed the families. The people were given a two-day course on Iceland and Icelandic society. Once the refugees arrive in Iceland, they receive lessons in Icelandic and learn about Icelandic society, before they can enter the labor market. Linda states that labor participation among quota refugees in Iceland has been good.

    In recent years, most of the quota refugees have come from the Middle East, especially Syria. There have also been quota refugees from Iraq. The number of Arabic-speaking interpretors is up. Blönduós has hired a staff member who speaks Arabic, and an interpreter from Akureyri has provided guidance to numerous municipalities.

    Later in the year, a group of about 25 people from Kenya is expected. They come here from Uganda. These are individuals who have faced persecution due to their sexual orientation. Linda notes that in Uganda, people can be jailed for life for being gay.

    We are so so happy they are here!
    They can group up with the other fucks complaining about the double bed rooms with private bath and television and kitchen in a former hotel as "insufficient" because they are not in the town center! Yeah, so happy. Next: building the long awaited mosque!

    I remember seeing a video of some illegal refugees in iceland who took shelter in a church, but the police came there and grabbed them and threw them into cars and hopefully to the airport.
