This is insanity.
Leaving their homelands for whatever the reason, these numbers will almost certainly cause others to leave for other shores as well. What we are seeing is a population transfer of such a magnitude that the very fabric of european society will be irreversibly changed.
The reason why many countries in the early years of immigration (during the industrial revolution) had a quota system, was to secure a successful integration and eventual assimilation of each new flow. This is not happening, and it will undoubtedly lead to future unrest of worrisome proportions.
NOTE: No civil society can withstand that much pressure without cracking.
Feeling strain, Germany set to raise asylum-seeker forecast to 750,000
By Tina Bellon
BERLIN (Reuters) – The German government will sharply raise its forecast for the number of asylum-seekers expected to arrive this year to a record-breaking 750,000, coalition sources said on Tuesday.
The increase, from a previous estimate of 450,000, is the latest sign of how a huge influx of migrants and refugees, many fleeing war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East, is straining the European Union’s ability to cope.
“The situation is extremely unsatisfying,” Chancellor Angela Merkel told ZDF television on Sunday, referring to the disproportionate number of refugees that Germany has taken in compared to many of its EU partners. “We need a common European asylum policy.”
After Merkel warned that the number of refugees will be far higher than expected, sources in her coalition told Reuters that the asylum-seeker forecast would probably be formally raised on Wednesday to a range of 650,000-750,000.
Thomas Oppermann, parliamentary leader of the center-left Social Democrats, the junior coalition partner, said he expects 700,000 to 800,000 arrivals this year.
