People smugglers help tens of thousands of illegal migrants enter Europe each year with fraudulently obtained tourist or study visas. Their methods are becoming more and more refined.

In one instance, migrants were charged 8,000 euros per person to come to Germany on fraudulently obtained tourist visas. The head of the people smuggling ring - run by a family with Syrian and Polish roots - has now been arrested. But another gang in the eastern German state of Saxony is still running an operation that exploits a legal loophole. The people smugglers - in this case with German and Indian roots - organize sham marriages between Romanian or Czech women and Indian or Pakistani men. The men pay 20,000 euros to enter the EU.
Police in Germany have managed to break up a number of people smuggling rings in recent years, but new structures quickly spring up again. The smugglers work internationally. Cross-border cooperation between law enforcement agencies is essential if authorities are to have any chance of combatting the problem.
The United Nations estimate that smuggling migrants generates profits of some seven billion dollars a year.

These people are not doing anything illegal. It is no different to what the so called NGOs are doing in the coast of Italy. Give them a medal.

death penalty for people smuggling, it's the only way
damn dw protect your sources 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔😂
Only 3 years in prison for human trafficking? No wonder crime does pay. She'll do it again once she gets out.

It's sad that people agree to endure this smuggling and also fear of getting caught and get in trouble. Why risk all that?

Censorship of comments and replies , we know you can't criticise whom is really in power in this world.

One thing that has always distinguished Germany and the Honorable and Brave German People is generosity and smartness but the moment has come in which Germans could no longer trust in people's good will. Europe is for Europeans, not iranians, turkish, and the like. Europe is only for descent people, not for others that have incompatible traditions and fashions that at the end of the day, will try (and fight) to change. A good example is when muslims protested at streets in violent ways justifying that protest for Germans to change German language to Arab! that's ridiculous! what's next? everyone to turn muslim? this is crazy. Let's fight for our homeland Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Austria.........all Europe together as one including Great Britain. We shouldn't miss out of sight Russia and Puttin's dark intentions. Communism hasn't gone whatsoever and as I see it, this is a way to weaken Europe for Russia to take over. Let's work together with America, the British Commonwealth and even China, Latinos, Afrikans, Jew, and free Asian countries to keep Russia and the communism, out from our lives. Germany is free and should feel pride to be. Germany is blameless of any stupid belief including genocide; in one way or in other, ALL countries have committed genocide; England, America, Mexico, China Russia in an active way. In a passive form, Cuba, Cambodia, Vietnam, Nicaragua, and absolutely ALL communist satellites have done it also. So, Germany! hold your head in high, get together and work for freedom. Others persons problems are not Germany's responsibility. Deutschland über Alles!

Governments all over the world do nothing to stop human trafficking even the sentences are laughtable...

In America too! Many Chinese were smuggled in here for the past 15 years! Most of them work in Chinese or Asian restaurants. 3-5 years later , they have green card and passports.

How the rich get richer – money in the world People smuggling in Germany - A multibillion 6 months ago   42:25

Exploding real estate prices, zero interest rate and a rising stock market – the rich are getting richer. What danger lies in wait for average citizens?

For years, the world’s central banks have been pursuing a policy of cheap money. The first and foremost is the ECB (European Central Bank), which buys bad stocks and bonds to save banks, tries to fuel economic growth and props up states that are in debt. But what relieves state budgets to the tune of hundreds of billions annoys savers: interest rates are close to zero.

The fiscal policies of the central banks are causing an uncontrolled global deluge of money. Experts are warning of new bubbles. In real estate, for example: it’s not just in German cities that prices are shooting up. In London, a one-bed apartment can easily cost more than a million Euro. More and more money is moving away from the real economy and into the speculative field. Highly complex financial bets are taking place in the global casino - gambling without checks and balances. The winners are set from the start: in Germany and around the world, the rich just get richer. Professor Max Otte says: "This flood of money has caused a dangerous redistribution. Those who have, get more." But with low interest rates, any money in savings accounts just melts away. Those with debts can be happy. But big companies that want to swallow up others are also happy: they can borrow cheap money for their acquisitions. Coupled with the liberalization of the financial markets, money deals have become detached from the real economy. But it’s not just the banks that need a constant source of new, cheap money today. So do states. They need it to keep a grip on their mountains of debt. It’s a kind of snowball system. What happens to our money? Is a new crisis looming? The film 'The Money Deluge' casts a new and surprising light on our money in these times of zero interest rates.
