the Federal Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz (SPD) wants to reduce Federal support for States and municipalities in the Integration of refugees from 4.7 billion to around 1.3 billion Euro per year. In contrast, the Affected storm run.

The state, among other things, the fact that the money will flow only to recognised refugees and not asylum seekers. As long as the asylum procedure lasts, depends on the Federal office for Migration and refugees (Bamf) – a Federal Agency. And many migrants will stay, despite nixed request for asylum nor for a long time and cause costs.

Managers in the field, such as the Eppinger mayor Klaus Holaschke refer to the long-term consequences of the lack of funds. It’s all about money for him, says Holaschke. Social cohesion was in danger, he warns. “The municipalities are the places of truth, because the people here turn to it,” says Holaschke. After two years of temporary accommodation, the municipalities are in the South West for the follow-up accommodation charge. “Now people come to us,” says Holaschke. Already now, Eppingen, dozens of refugees could not.

“What does not come from the Federal government, may not be assigned by the country,” says Klaus Holaschke. He hopes to further negotiations in Berlin. “I’m not sure that Scholz’s coming through.” Integration of society as a whole duration of the task, he says.
