It doesn't look like a humanitarian solution: A 30-year-old pregnant Palestinian woman has been taken last week in Passau, Germany. She sits in Eichstätt, Germany in the deportation prison. Her preschool-age son was left alone in Passau. He was, as the "Passauer Neue Presse" and the "Donau Kurier" consistently report that without his parents in an orphanage. After all, his old nursery, he is allowed to visit. The father is immersed. The family - an appointment is not clear - to Latvia to be deported.
The Bavarian refugee Council is outraged: "The case shows an example of the absurdity of European rules on Jurisdiction, which allowed it to push refugees against their will across Europe," said its representative Stephan Dünnwald to the daily mirror. An example of the case standing, but also for the "ruthlessness of the lower Bavarian authorities, and such regulations, regardless of the good Integration of the family rabidly enforce". Protection of the family or child are obviously foreign words for the foreigners authority.
about three years Ago, the Palestinian woman from Syria had fled. In Passau, she lived with her husband and son in a home for asylum seekers. "The small family had settled in well in their new home," the "Donau Kurier". However, the family is to be deported to Latvia, you had been assured by the Baltic country of asylum, before they traveled to Germany.

If you did not leave the country and the father would not be submerged, it would not come even to separation.More about
