Merkel is Now Paying Migrants to ‘Go Back Home’
Germany is supporting rejected asylum-seekers who voluntarily move back to their home countries with a one-time payment of 3,000 Euros ($3,570).
The German Interior Ministry says those who qualify can apply by a 28 February deadline and they would get the money once they return home.
Migrants who agree to go back even before their asylum request is rejected have already been offered 1,200 Euros per adult and 600 Euros per child under a different program for almost a year. They are now eligible to apply for both programs.
The Bild am Sonntag newspaper reported Sunday that 8,639 migrants participated Chancellor Merkel’s the returnee program between February and October, even though there are about 115,000 rejected asylum-seekers in Germany, many of whom cannot be deported for humanitarian reasons.
Have a terrific week.
