Every fifth unaccompanied minor in Cologne has gone missing

In 2020, more than a fifth of underage refugees in the cathedral city of Germany have disappeared without a trace. Meanwhile, the incompetent mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker seems to have embraced a motto for asylum seekers: No Covid, no borders, no plan.

    An official announcement from the city administration reads: “In 2020, 86 underage refugees escaped while they were being temporarily taken into care”. These are 86 people from the group of so-called UMAs – unaccompanied minors – of whom there were a total of 397 in Cologne last year.

    What has become of the “escaped” migrants is still unknown. However, the costs for such a UMA are known: 6800 euros per “guest” per month. This naturally explains the zeal of the supervising social and welfare associations.

    Among other things, the AfD parliamentary group in Cologne wants an inquiry into the subject:

    What exactly does the administration understand by “escaped” in this context?
    What does the city of Cologne know about the whereabouts of these children and young people?
    Were some of them – and if so, how many? – picked up again?
    What financial consequences does the city draw from this process?
    Have the payments to the supervising social organizations (Caritas, Diakonie, etc.) been reduced by the number of “escaped UMAs”?

    Especially in view of the immense costs that the city puts into the supply and care of asylum seekers every year, noted the AfD parliamentary group chairman Stephan Boyens: “According to budget planning, Cologne will spend over 800 million euros on refugees in the next four years. The city is left with over 50 percent of the costs. Examples like this show once again how carelessly Cologne spends taxpayers’ money.”
