ANGELA Merkel’s failed migrant policy will cost Germany and the EU a record £37bn by the end of 2017, it has been revealed.
And the Chancellor’s struggling administration has unveiled a raft of new laws in parliament to help cope with the escalating European migrant crisis.
A report for The Federal Ministry of Finance revealed taxpayers will be spending £37bn (€43bn) for 2016 and 2017 migrant budget to “meet the challenges of the nation-state”.
The asylum and refugee policy from the federal budget perspective report said it was necessary to put Germany “on a good path”.
Bundestag politicians have instigated an ‘Asylum Procedures Acceleration Act’ in a bid to speed up the process of deportation.
The German parliament has banned family reunion for two years, meaning battles to bring relatives of migrants over to Germany, as currently happens in Britain, will no longer take place.
And they have introduced a new law to allow for the easier expulsion of offenders in the case of asylum seekers suspected of committing a criminal offence.
Mrs Merkel’s Government says this law will allow them to identify “strange behaviour of foreigners” that could put them at risk of expulsion.
And they are set to digitise their immigration protocols as they implement an ‘introduction of proof of arrival’ scheme to identify those who have no paperwork.
The Federal Ministry of Finance will also sanction payments for an integration package of £1.72bn (€2bn) annually from 2016 to 2018…..
