Bulgaria ranks as first to avoid in refugee handbookAn Arabic language “Refugee Handbook,” Bulgaria has ranked first among countries asylum seekers should avoid. Refugees have said xenophobia and Islamophobia are widespread and that they try to skirt around the country, Deutsche Welle reports.

More than 10,000 people came to Bulgaria during a wave of refugees who arrived in Europe from 2013 to 2014. The majority of them reported having been treated poorly by Bulgarian authorities as well as by the general population. Bulgarians have said refugees made up the stories of mistreatment to get further west more quickly.

Public opinion is clearly against accepting more refugees into the country as seen by attacks on refugees as well as demonstrations and political rallies against them. The message is always the same: Bulgaria is poor and Christian, we don’t want you!
