Germany - Syrian Migrant Moves

Syria News of the Day further down !

Migrants from Syria make up for the largest group of asylum seekers in Germany, followed by those who came from Afghanistan. Here are some general facts about migrant moves targeting Germany as their preferred country of exile.

Facts about migrant moves within Germany as published by BBC on February 26, 2016:

Germany does not know the whereabouts of 130,000 asylum seekers who were registered last year, officials say.

The migrants did not appear at reception centres to which they had been directed, the government said in a written reply to a question.

This may be because they have moved to a different country, gone underground or registered several times.

Those missing represent about 13% of about 1.1 million asylum seekers registered in Germany in 2015.

A spokesman for the interior ministry said a series of measures approved by parliament on Thursday [i.e. February 25] would help address the missing migrants problem, AFP news agency reports.


On Thursday, the head of Germany's federal office for migration, Frank-Juergen Weise, said there were up to 400,000 people in the country whose identities were unknown to the authorities.

A special flight from Germany carrying 125 deported Afghans arrived in Kabul on Wednesday [i.e. February 24]. Those arriving in Kabul all left voluntarily, German officials said.

Afghans have become Germany's second largest group of asylum seekers, after Syrians, with 154,000 arriving in 2015.

" Syria ceasefire: Truce comes into effect, ‘cautious’ optimism over deal. "
News reports by Reuters agency and RT Russian TV on February 27, 2016


The visitor to "blueprint news" who came from Cayenne is a reminder of times when French Guiana was some kind of "French Guantánamo" for political prisoners. Prisoner camps on Devil's Island and near the mainland settlements of Kourou and Cayenne existed from 1852 until 1953. From there derives a German saying that is targeting any person one wants to get rid of: "Go to where the pepper is growing !" and which is referring to the fact that French Guiana also became known as the exporter of Cayenne pepper. It wouldn't surprise me at all, if the visitor from Syria presented below and who obviously noted my visitor from Cayenne had, as well, some second thoughts about the future of foreign Jihadists in Syria .....
