Official Estimates Germany to Get 300,000 Refugees This Year

1 Share
The head of Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) told a German newspaper that he expected a maximum of 300,000 refugees to arrive in Germany this year. "We're preparing for 250,000 to 300,000 refugees this year," BAMF head Frank-Juergen Weise told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper in comments due to be published Sunday. Germans tend to use the word "refugee" to refer to both refugees and migrants who are seeking protection but do not have refugee status. Weise added that if more people were to come than estimated, his office would come under pressure, but he suggested he was not worried about such a scenario, saying it was instead likely that fewer than 300,000 would come this year. Weise said Germany took in fewer migrants in 2015 than previously thought because some were registered twice and others had moved on to other destinations. "We'll present the exact number soon, but it's certain that fewer than 1 million people came to Germany last year," he said. It had widely been believed that 1.1 million migrants entered Europe's biggest economy in 2015 after fleeing war and poverty in their home countries. Weise said it would take a long time and a lot of money to integrate the newcomers into the labor market. He said 70 percent of the migrants who had already arrived were fit for employment but added that the majority of them would be dependent on basic social security provisions before they managed to get jobs. He estimated that about 10 percent of the new arrivals had university degrees, while about 40 percent did not have formal vocational training but did have practical work experience.

The Russian president could teach the Labour leader a thing or two when it comes to managing a photo opportunity
In Edinburgh, where I write this, there is concern that the city’s newly opened branch of the Kremlin-backed news agency Sputnik is intended specifically to destabilise post-Brexit English-Scottish relations. Message to Putin: “Don’t worry, Vladimir baby! We can handle this one ourselves!!”
Nonetheless, let us compare the contrasting media manipulation strategies of Putin’s Russia and, for example, the Labour party, both of them organisations that have, at times, abandoned their leftwing core beliefs in an attempt to adapt to a shifting geopolitical landscape. If last week’s news is to be believed, Russia’s control of media extends as far as hacking staff at the New York Times. As well as the Kremlin getting to see funny cartoons of representational figures holding up signs with writing on them hours ahead of the rest of us, could this hack also mean Russia could plant false stories into American media at source?
There is a long tradition of essentially dishonest photo opportunities being used to cement policy in the public mind
