Now that the latest wave of Afghan “refugees” has reached Germany, there is an urgent need for new accommodations at migrant reception facilities.

Also in Baden-Württemberg: All initial reception facilities are jam-packed
Not only in Brandenburg and Saxony, but also in Baden-Württemberg, the initial reception facilities are fully occupied. Those who offer the best social benefits also get the most care-seekers, although there may not be a need for help when the trip to Germoney leads through umpteen safe third countries, some of which are handsomely rewarded. This asylum package tourism is likely to intensify with the new red-green government and the yellow appendage, at least until the pressure-cooker lid blows up.
The initial reception facilities are fully booked, said CDU Migration State Secretary Siegfried Lorek to the Heilbronner Voice and the Südkurier (Saturday). “We urgently need more space.” He assumes that the Corona restrictions in the asylum accommodation will last longer because the people arriving there are usually not vaccinated.
The number of refugees has recently increased significantly again. According to Lorek, a total of 9,170 asylum seekers came to Baden-Württemberg in the first three quarters of 2021. Most of the refugees currently come from Syria and Afghanistan because of the political tensions.
According to Lorek, the country wants to expand its initial reception capacity by around 800 additional places this year. “Our goal is to create around 800 new initial reception places across the country this year,” he told the newspapers. In the long term, 400 new places should be created in Freiburg, and 1,650 new places should be added at several locations in Karlsruhe.
