The migrant crisis has had a monumental impact on Germany, as well as Europe as a whole, but the true financial cost to the taxpayer is absolutely massive.
The German Federal Employment Agency released a report revealing a 69% increase in welfare recipients coming from non-German backgrounds since 2010.
There’s now a total of 2.1m individuals signed up to the Hartz IV scheme that aren’t from Germany while the number of Germans receiving benefits has fallen by 20%.
Syrians account for the highest number of beneficiaries with 584,000 of them receiving benefits and Turkish nationals come in second with 259,000.
The German taxpayers are picking up the tab for Merkel’s migrant madness.
