The German government has disclosed that nearly half of ‘unaccompanied minors’ admitted into the country are actually over the age of 18.
Nevertheless, German taxpayers can be on the hook for the ‘upbringing’ of a ‘child’ migrant until they reach the age of 27 in certain situations – at which point they can transition into adult welfare programs.
The monumental costs of providing for migrants in Germany who claim to be ‘unaccompanied minors’ have been revealed in a new report by Welt – just months after the German government admitted that nearly half of these so-called children are actually adults.
According to federal figures, the expense per ‘child’ migrant averaged approximately €50,000 ($61,000) nationally in 2017, with social services agencies in certain regions detailing that they had invested much more – over $70,000 per case.
