|No, the highest number of refugees worldwide is accommodated by Turkey, Pakistan, Iran, Ethiopia and Lebanon. However, currently Germany is accommodating the highest number of refugees in the European Union. In the past ten years, France did this. |
No. The applicants for asylum receive accommodation, food, clothes, medication, sanitary products and pocket money. In the state-run reception facilities, these benefits are to be disbursed as non-cash benefits and not in the form of money. If the applicants for asylum live in flats, shared flats or other facilities of the municipality, they receive € 216,- for food, clothes and hygiene. The pocket money amounts to € 143,-. Thus, applicants for asylum receive € 359,-. By comparison, the standard rate for Hartz 4 recipients (welfare recipients) is € 399,-.
|Unfortunately, this assertion is very often found in social networks with various statements of place. This allegation is entirely unfounded! Applicants for asylum receive all necessary things as non-cash or cash benefits (see above.). They have to use these to pay their shopping or bus and rail fares just like everybody else, of course.|
