German Officials Now Pushing to Import Migrants, House Them In Hotels Amid Pandemic

Politicians in Germany are working to import migrants waiting on islands in Greece, arguing they can be housed in private hotels currently empty due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dirk Behrendt, a Greens Party member serving as Minister of Justice and Anti-Discrimination in Berlin, is demanding some 1,500 ‘underage’ migrants be resettled in the capital region, according to Junge Freiheit.

“We have a lot of vacant hotels in Berlin that could also be used to accommodate refugees,” Behrendt reportedly said during a recent interview.

“We have capacities,” he asserted. “The fact that the people of Lesbos [Greece] live in makeshift tents in the rain and cold is unworthy of the European Union.”

Behrendt, along with other German officials and activists, are calling for private accommodations to be used for migrant resettlement, including hotels, vacation rentals, and church-owned properties.
