You know that whatever numbers they tell you are faked by at least half.
But who the hell even knows? It could have been $100 billion. They wouldn’t tell you.
Whatever it is, it’s worth it, I’m sure.
Germany spent a record €23 billion ($25.65 billion) last year to integrate more than a million refugees at home and “fight the root causes of migration abroad,” according a government report.
Describing the circumstances as “extraordinary,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel rolled out the welcome mat to over a million migrants in 2015, at the height of the Syrian refugee crisis. Although arrivals have dropped sharply since then, the German government’s spending has not.
The federal government spent €23 billion on integrating those migrants in Germany and keeping more hopeful entrants outside the European Union, according to a Finance Ministry report seen by Reuters. The spending represents an increase of nearly 11 percent since the previous year.
I seem to remember a certain fat woman making the claim that these migrants would get jobs in the high tech industry and pay the pensions of old Germans.
Now it appears that the pensions of the old Germans will have to be looted to pay for their food, housing, clothing, etc.
I would also wonder how much of an increase in police spending has been necessary due to these innocent vibrant rapists and terrorists?
Ah, but it isn’t really an issue of money, is it?
It never was.
