Germany takes in almost 2,400 Moria migrants


BERLIN. The federal government has so far brought 2,380 migrants from Greece to Germany since January 2020. 1,425 of them are minors, the rest are children in need of treatment with their core families and so-called recognized protection beneficiaries in the family, as can be seen from the response of the Federal Ministry of the Interior to a request from AfD member of the Bundestag Anton Friesen.

With a view to the millions of Syrian refugees that the Federal Republic has hosted since 2015, Friesen criticized the admission of migrants from Greece by the grand coalition. "That doesn't solve any problems - it neither prevents the pressure of migration on Greece, Germany and Europe, nor does it help those affected."

Mayors want to take in Moria migrants
In September last year, a fire broke out in the Greek camp Moria on the island of Lesbos and destroyed the accommodation. Several migrants have to stand trial on suspicion of arson.

When fires also broke out in other refugee camps in Greece, politicians warned against a “Moria tactic” by the immigrants. At that time, Germany and other EU countries agreed to initially accept migrants who were minors or who were particularly in need of help. The mayors of ten German cities announced in an open letter to Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) their willingness to care for and accommodate the migrants.
