Thousands of separated children:

According to the European Union data, there are about 2000 such children with whom they have no family members on the islands of Lesbos, Kayos, Samos, Leros, and Kos in Greece. As of November, there are a total of 5,276 such children in the whole of Greece according to official figures. Nine percent of these children are under 14 years of age. 92 percent of the total children are boys.

Fear of smuggling:

German Home Minister Horst Zehofer protested the demand, saying that Germany was already helping Greece a lot in this matter. He said that only with the help of Germany, the situation will get worse which will not be normalized. According to him, by doing so smugglers will also become active and they will start smuggling children here.
