Refugees in Germany. How many refugees are there in Germany?

Experts from the GfdS (German Language Society) of two and a half thousand different concepts chose the word most often used during the year 2015. And the word is "refugees". In Germany, this topic was prevalent. By the way, for experts it turned out to be interesting in this case is not just one topic. They carefully sorted the word itself into components and came to a disappointing conclusion.

What load does the word der Flüchtling carry?

From the point of view of researchers of the German language, the word "refugees" initially can not carry a positive meaning. The first part, the root word Flücht, is translated differently, depending on the use, but the suffix itself is interesting semantic coloring. Sometimes he makes the word sound with disdain, for example: the invader - der Eindringling, scribbler, derby - der Schreiberling, and sometimes this component means something passive: the examiner is der Prüfling or the ward, the tutelage is Schützling.

Words with such a suffix and it is these groups that predominate in German. That is, the phenomenon itself - refugees in Germany - can not initially be positive. However, in some lands, for example, in Saxony, Flüchtige often sounds, which means - a fugitive. The suffix is pejorative, but the coloring of this word does not express any special joy. Nevertheless, the whole of 2015 passed under the sign of this concept, and this word was most often used by all Germanic (and not only!) Media.

Ministry of Internal Affairs of Germany

If you carefully consider the statistics provided by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, in 2014 there were 758,000 people registered as refugees in Germany. The largest number of them arrived in October - 181 thousand people. In the first months of 2015, 340,000 migrants arrived in the European Union, and the lion's share of them settled in Germany. Here it is purely about official statistics. Throughout the time since the outbreak of wars in North Africa and the Middle East, a large number of people settled as refugees in Germany without any registration, illegally. Experts estimate their number well above 200 thousand. And they can not predict the future invasion.

Refugees in Germany are able to radically change the country, in this opinion already everyone who cares for this process converges, but the whole Europe is worried. This is a colossal challenge, and now wherever the Germans meet - on the train, on the street, in the metro or airport, at a cafe or on vacation - which is mostly discussed only these events, no other political topic of German citizens is already taking place. How many refugees are in Germany today? The German Chancellor herself can not answer this question.

Angela Merkel

Angela Merkel does not stop repeating: "We can!", But whether she will be able to fulfill all these promises, believed by refugees from Syria and other countries? This question is still unanswerable. In the ranking of influential politicians, she is second only to Vladimir Putin and far ahead of Barack Obama, but no one is able to stop wars and close all Middle East and North African conflicts. So will the refugees from Syria stop flooding Europe if the fighting there is growing? The answer is obvious - no.

Angela Merkel is trying to squeeze her decisions in all the countries of the European Union, but this is pretty bad for her. The EU countries in the center and in the east flatly refuse to share the problems taken by the peoples of Germany, Italy, Greece and Sweden, or at least take part in them, providing assistance to refugees. Therefore, there is too much for Angela Merkel to take to cope with a very burdensome Muslim stream, to correct public opinion about her policies and not to weaken the country's economy.


Germany accepts refugees who bypass the Balkan countries, crossing the border of Turkey and Greece, often without any right to cross borders. That is, the Geneva Convention calls for the protection and provision of everything necessary for those who can claim refugee status.

If there is no war and violence in the country, a person must return to his homeland. Sort people by this principle is the inhabitants of the Balkan states, and we must admit that they can not cope with this at all. And they themselves willingly settle in the same Sweden, Austria and Germany. Therefore, the Schengen Agreement has been suspended, border controls have been introduced in Germany. The situation at the borders was very complex.

Assistance to Refugees

Germany met the crisis with a strong economy. Record revenues fell to 2015 - 671.7 billion euros, so it's easy to explain the former optimism of Wolfgang Schaeuble, German finance minister. The situation with the refugees required enormous expenditure, but in 2016 the ministry is able to balance the state. budget. In Germany, the lowest number of official unemployed - 2.6 million people, in the job market half a million open.

That's why experts are sure that Germany can give refugee status to everyone, since only at first it will be a problem, further the country expects even an economic gain - with the integration of fugitives into German society and successful employment. This is a huge burden on the administration throughout its structure, and on the population, who will have to show miracles of tolerance and more than active participation in the fate of the incoming contingent.


The speedy processing of applications for refugee asylum is not the most important problem. In a very short time throughout the country you need to find or create from scratch the points of settlement prepared for winter living conditions. First of all, for those who received refugee status. Germany and copes with it hard, sometimes even does not cope. In Hamburg, for example, confiscated empty industrial premises, which contradicts many laws, resulting in a rather unpleasant public debate.

Why are the indigenous Germans restricted in their rights when resolving the immigration crisis - this issue was not the most acute during the discussion. Urban communities and cities temporarily resettle refugees in sports halls - the German Sports Union has overhauled more than a thousand of them for this purpose. For example, Bremen employs a third of the total number of sports facilities. Teams and sports clubs have lost the opportunity for training, there are already many cases of good players out of sports associations.

Social housing

Middle Eastern and African refugees who have settled in Germany for a long time should receive apartments, but the market of cheap real estate suitable for huge eastern families, especially in big cities, is experiencing many difficulties. Social housing, which provides the state, significantly decreased even earlier, in the decade from 2002 to 2013, almost a half million apartments, and the need for it was without the influx of refugees is very high.

Among low-income strata of the population, competition inevitably arises and discontent is growing in this regard. The same situation in employment: a minimum wage of 8.5 euros per hour of work can be reduced if the labor employment of refugees is ensured, and the Federal Association of the German Entrepreneurs Union completely and completely opposes such a state of affairs. The willingness to help refugees from the German population is threatened.


To start working, migrants need to learn German. For this there are courses. Special attention from the authorities under the UN Convention is given to the rights of the child. Refugee children not only have the right to attend schools, but also, as stipulated in the laws of some federal states, are obliged to do this, even if the status of stay in the country is not definitively determined. Integration work is the pain of almost every German school.

In small towns for 300-500 students there are 70-100 children who are just about to start learning German. And it's not only the Syrians, many children from the states of the Balkan Peninsula, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Poland, whose parents managed to find work in Germany. Special classes are overcrowded, so many such children have to attend regular classes, where they naturally do not understand anything, thus diverting the rest of the students from the class. Certain difficulties, of course, are expected of teachers whose self-surrender is already on the verge of possibilities.


Will migrants who have received refugee status look for work - this is a matter of questions. Considering the amount of material assistance that they receive, you can come to the conclusion that it is unlikely. So, Germany - a refugee benefit 400-450 euros per month per person. Denmark - 1400 euros, Sweden - about 800 euros per month for each person. If we consider that migrants settle in the European Union quickly, writing parents, wives, children and camels from their home country, it makes no sense to work, there will be enough money.

Before Europe there is a question of a choice, whether it is necessary to play in multiculturalism and tolerance if the most negative consequences are inevitable? After all, under the guise of refugees, Germany and other EU countries are penetrated by members of the most radical and ubiquitously forbidden organizations, so that terrorism takes an ever more reliable roof over its head.


There are no speeches about protests among the main population of Germany , these are nonsense in comparison with those problems that will soon be solved: ethnic criminality ("hugs" in Cologne have already taken place), the predominance of parallel peace in the life of the country, since the inhabitants of Muslim countries are too different From the Germans on the mentality and, unlike them, are not at all tolerant in their customs and way of life.

They will live in a closed way, as always and everywhere. Especially since the indigenous population is unlikely to really get imbued with alien values. This is all calculated much easier than, for example, to recount whether the refugees did not enter the camp as superfluous. Germany has not yet controlled the influx of illegal migrants.


The fears and even fears of the Germans are under the ground. Their anxiety grows with the growing number of immigrants. In this regard, there is an increase in right-wing radical organizations. Debt of the state increases, competition in the real estate market is growing. But the main thing is that the influence of Islam in Germany becomes unbearable. All these problems, which spawned refugees, are simply collected in Germany: the Internet forums are buzzing, the press is under pressure from the authorities, who are compelled to defend the state's policy.

But for the first time in the last decades the Germans themselves felt completely unprotected: medical insurance became more expensive, but for treatment it is necessary to pay extra all the same, labor contracts are limited on time (in fact, they guarantee only a minimum payment), which previously happened only in creative professions, pensions were no longer paid Be stable. And to all this added daily danger of insulting violence from the "come in large numbers" of migrants.
