In 2018, the cost of maintaining the huge population of immigrants in Germany, mostly unskilled workers, has increased above $25 billion from taxpayers’ money, and this will continue dragging the economy.
In 2015, during the refugee crisis in Europe, almost a million immigrants were welcomed by Germany. According to the figures published this week in the German media by the Finance Ministry, an unemployment benefit of €450 is given to about 300,000 of them monthly under the Hartz IV system.
This flow of immigration is actually lower than during the Syrian war, but the cost of integration is likely to increase in the future.
This was made clear last week by Chancellor Angela Merkel when she stated that the country must be that of immigration and integration.
In the 2016 budget, €17bn was reserved by the German government for migration policy, but the already estimate is being exceeded and may likely increase if the costs of security to counter Islamist extremist are included.
A New Integration Law
In 2016, a new integration law was passed to establish the integration of the asylum seekers into the country. This included protection for them while the claim is pending if they learn the German language, no deportation of vocational training is undergone among others. However, according to Alexander Gauland, the alternative for Germany (AfD) party spokesman, two-thirds of the migrants make a claim to the Hart IV financial support. It has been a burden, financially, on the German citizens who are the taxpayers and as such, this should be treated seriously.
According to a member of the Belgian federal Parliament Filip Dewinter, the Germans and Belgians are being “cheated” by their governments due to the fact that the immigrants do not pay the cost of administration, defense, education, and others. The worst part is that immigrants are permitted to bring their immediate relatives after obtaining status for four years.
The interior minister has disclosed that for each asylum Seeker accepted, about 4.8 new migrants join the person.
Also, according to statistics from Germany’s employment agency
, it is seen that about 86% of the workers from countries of asylum origin are unskilled and tend to compete with the natives of Germany for a few low-wage jobs.
According to Weidel, these immigrants with low-wage jobs contribute very low to the government. As such, this uncontrolled immigration is a loss to Germany.
Hence, this continues to weaken the country’s economy and may lead to collapse finally.
