These are fairly ‘made-up’ numbers by this guy. It’s not hard to find a numbers count...the German government publishes this yearly.
Prior to 2013, the average for asylum/immigration in Germany was around 250,000. It’d been that way since the Wall came down in early 1990s. During the Yugoslav war periods, it went up to the 500,000 to 800,000 level, then decreased as soon as the war ended, the number went back to the average of 250,000.
2014? If you count the Iraqis, Syrians, North Africans, all other Africans, and ALL others (including Asians and Latinos), the number went to 450,000. Note, this is not the number for approved visas...it’s just the number of incoming.
2015? The official number stood at around 950,000 to 1-million.
After the various countries along the Med smuggling route put up fences and forbid travel, the number lessened greatly in 2016. Over the past two years? It’s back to the 250k to 300k level.
Failure rate on visas? Iraqis and Syrians got the green light, and they were getting a pass-rate of around 95-percent. The north African crowd? Unless you could demonstrate a skillcraft or university level...you didn’t get a visa and were told to return ‘home’. Their rate was in the 5-to-10 percent level.
What they were stuck with (never admitting to the general German public)...was a large group who were failed visa-applicants and appealing the failure. Back in early 2018, it was somewhere in the range of 450k to 500k on that list.
The other statistic which isn’t clear or noted...some of the incoming crowd...even if they got the visa....found Germany lacking or too difficult to adjust to. Toss in higher taxes, and complex work laws....some folks gave up and returned home.
As for the high Muslim count, an awful lot of this goes back to the 1960s and the guest-worker program, when Turks were invited in. Some stayed, and some left after two or three years. The Turks make up the bulk of this Muslim count....not the recent ‘arrival folks’.
