A new German city, populated by welfare recipients each year

Chancellor Merkel's German coalition partners, part of the so-called "GroKo" or Grand Coalition of the CDU, CSU and SPD, have agreed to let in "just" 220 000 migrants per year. But 220 000 immigrants constitute the size of an average German city per year.

    A critical op-ed in Achse des Guten has argued that while mainstream politicians claim that the refugee crisis was over, the government had regained control, and that a situation like 2015 would not be repeated, the SPD and Union [CDU + CSU] have promised a new German city populated with migrants every year.

    The “obstacle” of immigration has now been cleared out-of-the-way for exploratory negotiations between Merkel and PD’s Martin Schulz. And the “reassuring” message, that from now on no more than 220 000 migrants per year may enter Germany, will still mean a massive increase in wellfare recipients.

    How did the coalition partners arrive at this number? Why 220 000 people, one might ask, why exactly this number? “We agree that our society’s capability to integrate should not be overstrained’, declared the future coalition partners setting the maximum limit for the roughly 83 million people living in the country.

    Regensburg has around 150 000 inhabitants. Erfurt a bit more than 200 000. Freiburg has got about 230 000 inhabitants. So, in order to keep up the current status quo regarding inner safety, administration, public transport, housing, education, health care, roads, etc., and to be able to easily integrate 220 000 migrants per year and not only integrate them, but also house them, school them, feed them, and care for them in case of illness, Germans will have to do the following:

    Each year, they will have to build a new city, of the size of Freiburg, supply it with housing, hospitals, schools, public transport, police offices, kindergartens, recreational parks, sports areas, social welfare offices and the corresponding staff.

    But what if the future government has not thoroughly thought this through, and made the number up from thin air?

    Some naysayers and “xenophobes” have expressed their doubts at this point. If a city of the size of Freiburg is inhabited by welfare recipients each year, then presumably Merkel, Schulz and Horst Seehofer from the CSU did the maths.

    How else would they say that the limit of what is possible was exactly 220 000 new arrivals per year, without any sort of overstraining resulting from it?

    On top of that, the European Parliament wants to change the Dublin rule soon for migrant family reunification to be prioritized.

    It emerged last year that Merkel’s staff outlined that the country needed 300 000 people a year for the next 40 years to stop population decline. A leaked report from Merkel’s government said Germany would need to take in 12 million migrants over the next four decades to keep Germany’s population size stable. The staggering figures were revealed by the Rheinische Post in February last year.

    Merkel even received the Eugen Bolz Award in recognition of her migrant policy at the time. But she has been condemned not only in her own country but in Italy, Greece and Malta.

    Across the country, voters have deserted the SPD for the sober Alternative for Germany (AfD) or the Left party, formed from the remains of the former East German Communist party.
