Influx of students that don't speak German into schools just one of many problems

Waves of Romanian and Bulgarian refugees into Germany have taxed resources to the maximum there. Officials complain of a sudden influx of students into schools that don't speak German, as well as ghetto populations filling beyond capacity. A report now says that Germany faces a new wave of crime and disorder, according to a leaked government document.

German local government organizations have detailed the spread of prostitution and robbery, organized gangs of child criminals and poor living conditions that have come with immigrants.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - German statistics estimate that 437,000 Romanians and Bulgarians have traveled in the past three years alone, with numbers rising to 176,000 last year. 
The leaked report warns that mass immigration threatens "social peace." Reportedly obtained from Germany's interior ministry, the arrival of high numbers of non-German speaking pupils holds back progress for local children.

German local government organizations have detailed the spread of prostitution and robbery, organized gangs of child criminals and poor living conditions that have come with immigrants. 
The new assessment from Berlin comes as Britain prepares to open its labor market to Romanian and Bulgarian citizens.

It's all set to become an even wider problem. Limits imposed on the rights of people from the two countries to take jobs in the United Kingdom are lifted at the end of the year, seven years after they joined the EU.

Currently, German labor laws allows Romanian and Bulgarian citizens to remain in the country longer than three months if they have a trade and a job. The welfare system allows families to claim child benefits. Wider limitations on the right to work are still in force until January, as in Britain and the rest of the EU.

Romania and Bulgaria surveys suggest that many people already want to leave, ahead of the easing of EU restrictions and Germany is the nearest major country they can go to. The recent influx is supplying a model of what other nations such as Britain and France may expect in January.

The interior ministry document says that crime - particularly prostitution - is on the increase in the areas where the immigrants have settled.

The report describes "extreme occupancy of dilapidated, uninhabitable properties with illegal dormitories." Overcrowding could mean 20 people sleeping in one room. It speaks of "dirty patios, overfilled rubbish bins" and "noisy crowds into the small hours."

The German cities that have been worst affected by the impact of immigration, among them Frankfurt, Offenbach, Mannheim, Munich, Hanover, Berlin, Dortmund and Duisburg.
