More refugees in Germany: Ministry of Interior refuses to provide information on unaccompanied minors

Last Wednesday, migrants from Greece came to Germany again. The Federal Ministry of the Interior headlined a corresponding press release as follows: "Another flight with ill children and unaccompanied minors from Greece landed in Hanover."

It was also said that a total of 139 people were on the plane. In addition to the 51 unaccompanied minors, 17 ill children and their core families. So far, so clear. The situation becomes less clear if one wants to know how old these 51 unaccompanied, underage immigrants are, what gender and what nationality they are.

Above: "The first of a total of 150 migrants from #Moria that Germany wants to take in have arrived at #Hannover Airport, 51 unaccompanied young refugees who are being distributed to several federal states."

After all, one would think that German taxpayers have a right to know for whom the hundreds of thousands of their generated euros are being spent. Because underage and unaccompanied asylum seekers cost a lot in accommodation at around 5,000 euros per month. Junge Freedom asked the Federal Ministry of the Interior about gender, age and nationality. The answer was short: "For reasons of data protection law, we cannot provide any details about the people who arrived in Hanover today."

Girls are the exception
The question of what gender underage and unaccompanied migrants are has been in the public interest since April at the latest. At that time, the federal government announced that it would be able to fly in seriously ill or unaccompanied immigrants under the age of 14 - primarily girls. In the end, only four of the 47 migrants were girls. Even in the CDU there was resentment.

Lower Saxony's social secretary Heiger Scholz (SPD) said, according to the dpa news agency, that the group of minors housed by his state consists of two girls and nine boys from Afghanistan and Pakistan. Photos show that the proportion of girls was also very low overall.

But the second group of people who landed in Hanover on Wednesday could also be of great relevance in the future for how many immigrants Germany has to accept under the EU asylum and migration pact. The EU Commission's proposals refer to an expanded concept of family.

The number is not decreasing
If the pact is adopted, not only would parents and underage children be brought together in Germany as before, but also those people who have an adult sibling in the Federal Republic. As the CDU migration expert Thorsten Frei recently warned, Germany would be particularly hard hit with more than 800,000 protected titles granted.

This number will not decrease as Germany has already promised to accept several thousand migrants from the Greek refugee camps.
