13/04/2016 VIENNA, Austria – New Interior Minister Will Be Tough on Migrants

Austria’s new Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka said on Sunday he would stick to the hardline stance on migrants pushed by his predecessor, Johanna Mikl-Leitner. “This course will be continued, there’s no doubt about that,” Sobotka told a press conference in Vienna.

52-year-old Mikl-Leitner, who took office in 2011, has been one of the key architects behind the country’s tough asylum-seeker policies, as Europe grapples with its worst migration crisis since World War II.

She has overseen the introduction of border fences, tougher frontier controls and hardline asylum rules — including an annual cap on migrant numbers — as part of her push to build “fortress Europe” and shut the main Balkan migrant trail for good. Agence France Presse

11/04/2016 BERLIN, Germany – 6,000 child migrants ‘missing in Germany’

The German Interior Ministry has revealed that last year 5,835 refugee children, of which 555 were younger than 14, were reported as missing in that country reports TheLocal.

“The missing, unaccompanied, underage refugee children came mainly from Afghanistan, Syria, Eritrea, Morocco and Algeria,” the Ministry said.

The Federal Criminal Police Office has previously said missing children do turn up — 8,006 was the original number of lost reported — and numbers can be distorted when a child is reported missing in multiple places, or with slightly different personal details.

One of the biggest concerns about the missing children who are not found to be living with relatives is that they are susceptible to organised crime — including human trafficking, forced prostitution and exploitation.

Breitbart London previously reported that Europol, the European Union’s police agency, said over 10,000 child migrants went missing across Europe last year after registering with state authorities in several countries.
