In an effort to house refugees “for an extended period of time”, the German city of Willich approved a contract with the “MegaVillage AG” corporation to build 70 entirely new houses in what has become the first official refugee village right in the middle of a German town. On the area of a former British Army Military base, homes for 280 refugees were approved for construction and erected within just a few months. Each home is fully equipped with all the necessities for a refugee family – the village itself hosts 2 cafeterias, community dining rooms, washing rooms and doctors. Grocery stores as well as schools and kindergartens are in immediate vicinity.
In what he describes as a “lucky coincidence”, the spiritual founder of the village and city treasurer Willy Kerbusch met with the newly established company to negotiate a contract that enabled the purchase of dozens of mobile homes that were originally intended for crisis areas abroad.
Organizers of the village claim Germans have adjusted to this situation and no longer complain. The city administration of Willich hopes that within 5 to 10 years, every refugee will have a proper, full home so the temporary homes can be sold and bigger, multi-story and permanent houses can be built on the area.
This comes at a hefty price for the taxpayer. Angela Merkel’s “open border” policy towards illegal immigration has caused over 1.2 million refugees to enter the country just last year. The city has allocated additional 2 million Euros in addition to the 7,5 million it already pays for regular housing of refugees, just for 280 individuals. That is roughly 15,000€ per refugee per year just for housing, which amounts to a total of 50,000€ per refugee if you count in supply, health care, administrative and as well as unemployment benefits. The average wage of a German worker is 46,000€.
In addition to the refugee village, permanent new houses are built to house the newcomers. The cost for the taxpayer is around 1.600€ per square meter or roughly 500,000 per single-story house, 1.5 million for each multi-story house that hosts 6-9 families, according to the city administration itself.
The individual cost for every refugee in Germany is estimated to be roughly 450.000€ over his lifetime by the professor of science Bernd Raffelhüschen at the University of Freiburg, shattering the narrative that the migrants will somehow pay for German pensions.
The German Government intends to spend a total of 93.6 Billion Euros to house and integrate refugees into German society until 2020.
860,000 people in Germany are currently homeless, millions of pensioners live below the poverty line and resort to collecting returnable bottle or eating cat food, German families now often choose not to have children because they simply cannot afford it. Flood victims in the state of Baden-Württemberg were recently told that the state “can’t just conjure up” money, leaving them with no support as their houses and everything they have build was washed away in front of their eyes. There is an epidemic of housing shortage in Germany. Many students live with their parents until their late 20s since finding affordable housing has become an impossibility. Being a homeowner is becoming an unreachable dream for more and more Germans.
But apparently magically creating and allocating billions to house illegal immigrants in newly built houses seems to be possible.
This seeming injustice has caused the new Right Wing party AfD (Alternative for Germany) to gain huge traction, winning 25% of the vote in some states from the get-go.
Establishment parties in many states now desperately try to push for voting rights for illegal immigrants, dementia patients, mentally handicapped people and people too sick to leave their houses to avoid a trend-reversal by patriotic Germans voting for the promising AfD party that would strive toward putting the German people first and securing the nation’s borders again.
