The German Migrant Crisis – Update

By Morris Schaffer and US Defense Watch

As mentioned yesterday, US Defense Watch is monitoring the growing migrant crisis in Germany. We are concerned about the situation in Germany because of Germany’s powerful status in NATO and its role as a major player on the European continent.

Here are several things to watch as the situation unfolds:

  1. The German public’s growing weariness and anger with the migrants.
  2. The German public’s shock  and frustration with Chancellor Merkel and her coalition government that appears to be ignoring the concerns of its population.
  3. The rise of a dangerous Fifth Column in Germany of potentially hundreds of thousands of young, male ISIS and radical Islamic group recruits.
  4. The moves by the Bavarian state government to halt the influx of refugees into the southernmost province of Germany which borders Austria.
  5. The demands of refugees for better treatment and housing.

From the British media outlet, the Express:

Around 20 Syrian migrants have filed a case against the Berlin state Government demanding immediate access to shelter and benefits after waiting for more than a week to be registered by the authorities. 

It comes as serious splits emerged in Angela Merkel’s Government over how to divide economic migrants from genuine refugees fleeing war-torn countries. 

Hundreds of asylum seekers are still waiting to be registered due to huge backlogs at the city’s main refugee centre. 

RT reports:

The German state of Bavaria has threatened to file a constitutional complaint against the federal government unless it implements efficient measures to curb the influx of refugees.

The Bavarian government has stepped up pressure on Angela Merkel’s’ cabinet, demanding that the German government drop its policy of welcoming an unlimited number of refugees.

If “effective measures” are not taken to deal with the crisis, Bavaria will take the matter to the Constitutional Court and charge the German government with endangering “the legal capacity of the German states to act independently,” Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann announced after an emergency meeting of the Bavarian government on Friday.

“One [the German government] does not comply with the law and the other [Bavaria] wants the law to be complied with,” Bavarian Prime Minister Horst Seehofer said, commenting on the decision at the press conference following the meeting.

In his speech at the Munich press conference, Horst Seehofer repeatedly stressed the necessity of limiting the influx of refugees into Germany.

“The limitation of immigration is inevitable,” he said, adding that the members of Bavaria’s government were not among those “that say: It is a transmigration of peoples and we have just to accept it.”

He also stressed that integration efforts would be successful “only if the scale of immigration was limited.”

Seehofer also invoked security concerns, saying that stemming the incoming tide of refugees would help to “ensure the domestic security [in Bavaria],” emphasizing that he was referring primarily to “criminality in the widest sense,” rather than terrorism.

In addition, Bavaria also warned that it could take “emergency self-defense measures” if the federal government failed to curb the uncontrolled influx. Bavaria’s interior minister announced that these measure could include “sending the refugees back directly at the border” or “immediately transferring them to other German states.”

In the North German city of Celle, migrants took to the streets with sticks and pipes, yelling Allah Akbar!

Also in Northern Germany, in the city of Luebeck, school children have been ordered to change migrant sheets and prepare meals for them, garnering the outrage of the local community, since the migrants could clearly perform these tasks themselves.

The Kiel Ministry of Education has made it clear that starting this week, 13-14-year-old eighth-graders from one school in the city of Lübeck have been putting fresh linen on refugees’ beds, helping out in the kitchen of the asylum seekers’ center and sorting clothes collected for the migrants. The chores last from 8:30am till 1:30pm.

As the crisis continues, it appears that Chancellor Merkel is unwilling to compromise on anything concerning the migrant situation. The German federal government keeps repeating the same mantra, that “They can do it.” One can only presume from recent events that the German government is fatally mistaken, can’t do it and if they do not adhere to the pleas of regional and municipal leaders that an insurrection among its own native citizens may soon become a reality.
