Integration of impede instead of promote

Between the Zurich municipalities, a gap opens: The a strive for Integration. The other to tighten the austerity screw. The trigger for the referendum of 24. By September 2017. Since then, the captured foreigners (Status F) for the time being no social welfare, if they are dependent on state support, but only to asylum care. A single person gets to just under 700 instead of around 986 francs per month, a family of four instead of 2110 still in 1470.

Some municipalities do not reduce but only the basic needs. The first report of the Monitoring and point of contact for provisionally admitted persons (MAP-F) showed already in the last August. Dozens of people with Status F had to leave their homes and in collective not change their accommodation, because the municipalities paid the rent.

Now the MAP F has created a second report, which is published today. Accordingly, the gap between the communities is growing. Because it is saved in the Integration – although the municipalities are obliged to provisionally Recorded with the same integration services as people with a residence permit.

15 people, a kitchen

There is changed, for example, the seven members of Syrian family of Muhammad (Name). In the report named ward came to the prophet's mosque in three rooms of a refugee property; the property is the family with another family of five and three individuals, one of them mentally and aggressive. The 15 people, a kitchen was available. The bathroom shared by ten people. A connection to the Internet.

for privacy, the family had little. The four school-age children of Muhammad were so uncertain that the elder advised his siblings to sleep with a knife under the pillow. The house, which is managed by the ORS, is not lockable, so that staff and the police have access at all times.

The family hoped for improvement, as the father found employment. On paper, the family now had 500 Swiss francs more per month. The greater the disappointment when the authorities withdrew 400 francs in withholding tax. This includes costs for public transport and the foreign food came in, instead of 500 francs more, the Muhammad now had around 200 francs less.

Disposal authority for municipalities

"This contradicts both the principle of social assistance, according to which the Integration is to be promoted, as well as the requirement for economic self-sufficiency of the family," it says in the report. In social assistance, the family would be entitled to compensation for the Transport and catering. Also, the municipality or the ORS would have had to make the man's attention to the fact that the withholding tax can be adopted.

The company ORS is not error aware. Spokesman Lutz Hahn notes that the company the same principles: "We put in the care and Integration of people entrusted to us to high quality standards." But: "The sovereignty lies with the municipalities." The family of Mohammed have in the short term, need to be accommodated: "The living room is provided to the people of the municipalities. Not it can occur, in particular, in emergency situations, the properties correspond perfectly to the needs of the persons assigned."

the gap grows up

A case of the family of Muhammad is not. The show further examples from the report. As the young mother found a Teaching and social services to bear the cost of the care asked. The answer: you have chosen for the child and therefore not entitled to vocational Integration. Or that wife that got paid in contrast to her husband, not a German course, because you had to watch the children. A budding apprentice could not take his position almost, because the Department of social services refused at first to pay an advance of CHF 300 for the necessary equipment.

Moritz Wyder, Director of the MAP F, also in view of the arguments in the vote fight irritating: "at the Time, it was said, a deeper reason needed, increase the incentive to seek work. Now, however, some communities place the Affected active stones in the way." The gap between the municipalities of waxes: cities such as Zurich, supported temporarily admitted persons-intensive, others understand the change in the system as a money order. What complicates the matter for the persons Concerned: you are not allowed to move, as long as you are dependent on assistance, in a different municipality. "It does not, therefore, necessarily handy rules and minimum standards," says Wyder.

Bern will says Integration strengths

Nina Gilgen, head of the cantonal Integration office, said: "There were differences in the financing of integration measures, but since the change of system, they tightened up apparently." Therefore, there is a need for higher-level requirements. Gilgen relies on the efforts of the Federal government. On 1. May the new agenda for Integration, which was adopted by the Confederation and the cantons together. It brings a higher Integration rate: Instead of 6000, the cantons receive from the Federal government re-18000 francs per Person. A prerequisite is, among other things, that refugees and provisionally admitted equally to be promoted.

For Jörg Kündig, FDP cantonal councillor, and President of the municipal President of the Association, is the increased fee, although gratifying, but never ever sufficient. The municipalities would be left alone. Binding rules he issued a denial: "In the integration services can now be individual solutions found." The allegation that some of the municipalities on the hump of the Affected lines of business, can not be applied: "From my point of view is assessed in each individual case, and then the competent authorities make the Decisions have the appropriate to them."
