    Germany's government expects to spend around 93.6 billion euros by the end of 2020 on costs related to the refugee crisis, a magazine said on Saturday, citing a draft from the federal finance ministry for negotiations with the country's 16 states.

    The figure is likely to stoke concerns, particularly among growing anti-immigration movements, on the impact of new arrivals on Europe's largest economy which took in more than a million people last year, many from Syria and other war zones.

    The numbers arriving have fallen this year, helped by a deal between the European Union and Turkey that was designed to give Turks visa-free travel to Europe in return for stemming the flow of migrants.

    German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel said the finance ministry's calculations included the costs for accommodating and integrating refugees as well as tackling the root causes for people fleeing from crisis-stricken regions.

    Officials based their estimates on 600,000 migrants arriving this year, 400,000 next year and 300,000 in each of the following years, the report said, adding that they expected 55 percent of recognized refugees to have a job after five years.

    A spokesman for the finance ministry declined to comment on the figures but pointed to ongoing talks between the government and states, saying they would meet again on May 31 to discuss how to divide up the costs between them.

    The report said that 25.7 billion euros ($29.07 billion) would be needed for jobless payments, rent subsidies and other benefits for recognized asylum applicants by the end of 2020.

    Another 5.7 billion euros would be needed for language courses and 4.6 billion euros would be required for measures to help migrants get jobs, it added.

    The annual cost of dealing with the refugee crisis would hit 20.4 billion euros in 2020, up from around 16.1 billion euros this year, the report said.

    The federal government and the states are at odds over the costs of the refugee crisis and how much Berlin should pay out.

    Germany's states have long complained they cannot cope with the refugee influx and related costs and the report in Der Spiegel said states expected to face costs of 21 billion euros this year, rising to around 30 billion euros per year by 2020.

    It said the states expected the federal government to bear half of the costs related to refugees but added that the federal finance ministry thinks Berlin is already shouldering more than that and does not think the states' calculations are justified.

    "German government plans to spend 93.6 billion euros on refugees by end 2020"

    Plans to SPEND the money right out of the POCKETS of taxpayers! Send them ALL back to Safe Zone on their soil. Take THEIR oil money to pay for them!

    Money that should be spent on roads, bridges, water systems, sewer, updating schools...putting citizens back to work.

    How much do they "plan" to spend when your citizens are raped, killed and your towns start to blow up??? The overcrowded jails, prisons, court, lawyers, judges and law suits? Rampant diseases they bring. The destruction of values decline, medical care costs explode! Where is the budget for that hot mess?

    thought merkel said most will return to their countries when the "war" is over. Guess that sounded good for now.
