The European Commission urged Germany late Monday to accept children from overcrowded migrant camps in Greece.
The Commission is concerned about the difficult situation for unaccompanied minors on the ground in Greece and remains in close contact with the Greek authorities, notably as concerns the situation on the heavily overcrowded islands and the very challenging situation in the hotspots, a spokesman told DPA news agency.
In particular as regards the more than 5,000 unaccompanied minors, the Commission has repeatedly called upon the member states to continue relocating from Greece on a voluntary basis, with funds provided by the Commission, the spokesman added. [ ]
Just on the islands of Lesbos, Chios, Samos, Leros and Kos, almost 2,000 unaccompanied children are registered, according to European Union figures. Across the whole country, there were 5,276 as of November. [ ]
German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer opposed the calls, telling Germanys Süddeutsche Zeitung that Berlin was already helping Greece a lot.

Uhhhhh, Brussels is it? Why don’t you call on their host countries to take them back? Perhaps give them a pamphlet on the proper way to emigrate? Just a thought. Go back to your brie and caviar and cognac.
Europeans are funny
Many of whom are 28-year old war veterans.
Which means that 91% of them are 14 or older (and probably much, much older).
Balding men with beards show up at the refugee centers without identification claiming to be 14 years old. Idiot Europeans, afraid to offend them, accept their claims without question.
OMG! That would separate familes!
I forget. Are we for or against “separating families?”
Or will we be against it once they’re separated?
Wait, wait, wait. Time out on the field. If they are “unaccompanied”, aren’t they already separated from their families? Resume play on my wind.
Why doesn’t Brussels tell Africa to come take them?
Send ‘em to Turkey.
If Germany had any balls, they would say F You EU. But the Genuine Germans moved to the USA...in the 1920s
The German elites control the EU. This is even more showy kabuki theater than what happens in our DC swamp.
“Send em to Turkey.”
You owe Turkey an APOLOGY. How can you assume that they are SO STUPID as to accept undocumented people, claiming to be kids, even though they are obviously in their 20s or 30s (at least)? It’s not like they’re Germans or something.
PLEASE APOLOGIZE - not everyone is as stupid as the Germans, or the Swedes, Dutch, etc. Unlike Western Europeans, the Turks have a COUNTRY to protect.
Sure nice to see that they have FIRST RATE life jackets, while on their rickety Third World boats.
