Germany’s immigration problem is quickly becoming a crisis. While German politicians have framed the situation as a mere influx of migrants seeking humanitarian aid, this unprecedented level of immigration is in actuality one that threatens their nation’s very sovereignty. While this claim may sound hyperbolic, a careful analysis of recent German events will dispel such a notion.
Native citizens of Germany have been forced to alter their ways of life as a result of their government’s immigration policies. In 2015 alone, Germany welcomed the arrival of over 1.1 million migrants, and this influx had dramatic effects including, yet not limited to, the following examples. In the town of Mering, after a 16-year-old girl was raped by a migrant, local police were forced to compel German parents to forbid their children from walking outside without being accompanied by an adult; in the city of Pocking, the owner of a gymnasium, often frequented by migrants, was pressured to warn parents to not allow their daughters to wear clothing that my induce immigrants to violate them; German hospitals were forced to hire additional security personnel, since their staff members were being physically threatened by violent migrants who were unhappy with the quality of care they were receiving; and well over $6.6 billion was extracted from the German taxpayers due to their government’s efforts to provide housing, food, and healthcare to their new migrant arrivals.
In addition to these alterations in German lifestyle, the country’s rule of law and authority have been repeatedly undermined by the same immigrants whom German authorities insist on welcoming in high quantities. In 2015, immigrants were responsible for roughly 400,000 reported crimes, and, in Cologne and Hamburg, almost 700 sexual assaults were reported to police on the first day of 2016 alone. German police forces are also not optimistic about this upcoming summer, as it has been reported that they have been warning government officials of an unavoidable confrontation between migrants and women in public areas.
It is highly evident that Germany cannot sustain its ability to govern itself when it continues to allow large waves of migrants into the nation who have proven both threatening to society and ungovernable. All of these stories and statistics suggest something quite startling: German authorities are correct. They are right to believe that their nation is facing a humanitarian crisis, but it is their very own native citizens that are in need of such compassionate aid.
