<p class=”p1″ style=”text-align: center;”><b><u>GERMANY IS EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW TO SYRIAN REFUGEES</u></b></p>

<div>By years end Germany will have accepted about 800,000 refugees and migrants, mostly from Syria. The government will spend $6.6 billion. Germany and Austria opened up their borders after immigrants were treated with hostility in Hungary. The Hungarian Prime Minister pledged to build an 11.5 foot barrier on Hungary’s southern border to keep migrants out. (Hungary has serious fiscal problems). Prime Minister David Cameron said that the U.K. will take 20,000 refugees over the next five years. French President Francois Holland said France will take 24,000. He and Angela Merkel agreed on a plan to spread the refugees across Europe. <a href=”″ target=”_blank”>Read Mas</a></div>
