Hellequin GB has translated three articles from PolitikStube on migration-related news from Germany.
The first article reports on Germany’s front-runner status in the “asylum” race:
Germany leads the way in asylum applications in the first quarter
With over 26,000 asylum applications in the first quarter of this year, Germany is the front-runner in the EU. In contrast, Estonia accepted eleven and Hungary only eight asylum applications.
“The figures come from a confidential status report by the EU Commission on the current migration situation,” reports Welt am Sonntag and refers to previously unpublished figures from the EU asylum authority EASO (European Asylum Support Office).
It also emerges that, according to the document, 41% of applicants in Germany are Syrians, followed by Afghans (14%) and Iraqis (7%).
This outrage, according to which Germany receives by far the greatest number of asylum applications in Europe, must be ended immediately. In addition, incentives in the German asylum procedure — for example, excessively long procedures, access to the labor market before recognition, excessive social benefits, failed deportations — that primarily attract asylum seekers within the EU to Germany must be removed.
The second article concerns the abandonment of criminal proceedings investigating official corruption in the awarding of asylum status to applicants:
Criminal proceedings against the former head of the Bremen refugee office stopped
It all started in October 2017, when a forged (Asyl) Decision from the Bremen branch of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF [Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge]) in Hesse emerged. In the spring of 2018, the public prosecutor began to investigate. The suspicion: The former head of the migration authority, together with several lawyers, wrongly helped hundreds of asylum seekers to obtain positive decisions. The public prosecutor’s office was investigating violations of official secrecy, data falsification and taking advantage.
Now the Bremen regional court has ruled, and the proceedings against the former head of the Bremen BAMF branch office have been discontinued against payment of €10,000. In September 2019, the Bremen public prosecutor’s office initially listed 121 alleged crimes that the ex-head of the agency and two lawyers allegedly committed. One of the investigators’ central allegations was that they illegally prevented foreign clients of the lawyers from being deported or improved their residence status.
Uwe Witt, chairman of the AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany] parliamentary group in the Labor and Social Affairs Committee of the German Bundestag: “The Bremen example clearly shows how lawyers, senior officials and the judiciary work together to smuggle asylum seekers into our social system. The judgment of the regional court strongly reminds me of the saying “One crow does not prick the other’s eye.”
And who has to pay for it? The German taxpayer.
The final article concerns the German government’s questionable official statistics on the number of Muslims in Germany:
A study from the world of fables: Only around 5.5 million Muslims are said to live in Germany
According to a study by the BAMF [Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge, Federal Office for Migration and Refugees], between 5.3 and 5.6 million Muslims are currently living in Germany. For comparison, according to Statista [German company specializing in market and consumer data], the number of Muslims was around 4.5 million in 2015 and around 4.2 million in 2009.
The number of Muslims in Germany has increased in recent years. This is the result of a study that the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) presented on Wednesday in Nuremberg together with the Federal Ministry of the Interior. According to the study, between 5.3 and 5.6 million people of the Muslim faith currently live in Germany, which corresponds to 6.4 to 6.7 percent of the total population.
“In connection with immigration from Muslim countries in the Near and Middle East, the Muslim population group has become more diverse in recent years,” said BAMF President Hans-Eckhard Sommer. Source: Welt.de (article in archive)
The development of the number of Muslims from 2009 to 2015 alone shows that the statistics probably only reflect half the truth and are rather nicely coloured; an increase of only around 300,000 in six years is almost impossible, given the high birth rate and immigration. The increase between 2015 and 2020 also belongs more to the mythical world, since 2015 around two million so-called refugees are said to have “officially” streamed into the country, almost all of them Muslims.
For decades, citizens have been presented with the old wives’ tale that the proportion of Muslims in Germany’s population is not particularly high. This serves to reassure and support the arguments against critical voices warning of Islamization, repopulation and a Muslim majority. One can only guess how many Muslims already live in Germany; it feels like it could be between 15 and 20 million if you look at the school classes and the streetscape in the large- and medium-sized cities, with the small towns gradually catching up.
The spread and thus the increasing influence of Islam is not exactly reassuring. A look at Sweden and France shows the future, which is by no means rosy.
