  1. This mass migration is the fault of Herr Merkel. Since she requested the settling of hundreds of thousands of migrants in Germany, then she should be presented with the full bill, for rail transportation, policing, security, medical and all organizations who provided assistance. In fact the Serbs, Croats, Slovenes and Austrians should do the same.
