Germany’s left-globalist interior minister, who previously wrote for an Antifa magazine managed by an organization with links to far-Left extremism, has been accused of concealing migration data, which if released, would deeply call into to question the so-called traffic light coalition’s ability to maintain order, security, and uphold the rule of law.
Considering statements made by Deputy Chairman of Germany’s Federal Police Union Manuel Ostermann, where he said more than 1,500 illegal migrants are arriving in Germany every day, September alone witnessed some 40,000 asylum seekers—not including Ukrainian refugees—enter German territory, with most being adult males from Afghanistan, Syria, and North Africa, Junge Freiheit reports.
Amid this unprecedented influx of migrants, interestingly, and perhaps not coincidentally, October’s “Migration Analysis Report,” which the interior ministry has made available to officials in the Federal Police’s internal network since 2018, has yet to be released, leading many to think Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) is concealing the report’s damning figures.
Predictably, Faeser, who in September dissolved the interior ministry’s Expert Group on Political Islamism, denies concealing the report, adding that it would continue to be distributed to the directorates of the Federal Police. The Federal Police Union chief, however, contends that this is a barefaced lie.
“This is simply not true,” Ostermann told BILD newspaper, adding that Germany is “destination country number one” for illegal immigrants.
The accusations against the interior minister come two weeks after Frontex, the European Union’s border agency, revealed that some 228,840 migrants illegally crossed EU borders between January and September, up 70% over last year and the highest number registered in the first three quarters since the fateful migrant crisis of 2016, as The European Conservative previously reported.
In its report, Frontex notes that the Western Balkan Route—which begins in Turkey, traverses through either Greece or Bulgaria, then passes through western Balkan states before finally reaching Austria or Germany—recorded the largest uptick in illegal arrivals, with 106,396 illegal entries detected in the first nine months of 2022, an increase of 170% from the same period last year.
In September, the German news outlet RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland (RND) reported that 12 of the 16 federal states have had to begin blocking any additional intake of asylum seekers, stating that their resources and capacity to take in newcomers has been overwhelmed.
