Saxony Struggles With Refugees Influx

BAUTZEN, GERMANY - JANUARY 08: Mahan, 2, an Iranian Christian refugee who along with his parents is seeking asylum in Germany, peeks from behind a glass partition in the dining room at the Spreehotel refugee center on January 8, 2015 in Bautzen, Germany. Approximately 200 refugees, many of them from Syria and Tunisia, but also from Chechnya, the Balkans, Iran, Russia and elsewhere, live at the center while German authorities process their aslyum claims. The Spreehotel, located a few kilometers outside Bautzen, transitioned to a refugee home about 6 months ago, despite vocal opposition from many Bautzen residents. Germany is absorbing a record-number of refugees and Saxony is struggling to accommodate its share, which in 2014 was approximately 10,000. The arrival of refugees in communities has also led to discontent among local residents, a factor that is fueling the immigration-wary Pegida movement and its weekly rallies in Dresden that recently drew 18,000 participants.
