    Major Migrant Crisis in Europe (1812)

    The media reports on Germany being unaware of the location of over half of the migrants that arrived in the country in 2015 are wrong, German Interior Ministry spokesman Harald Neymanns told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — On Thursday, media reported that the German government is unaware of the whereabouts of more than half of the 1.1 million asylum seekers in the country.

    “There is one newspaper that claims the situation was out of control like that. It’s a challenging situation for everybody but the story where Germany doesn’t know where 600,000 refugees are is wrong,” the spokesman said.

    Following the media report, the German Interior Ministry said that most of the migrants had already gone to other EU countries and another part of those missing can be explained by delays in application procedures.

    Europe is struggling to find a solution to a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Germany has been the main destination for those fleeing war and poverty.

    • Well hope it's true....the population will let you know.
    • Huh?
      sure...just like all the assaults that "didn't" or "weren't" happening. There is so much fear of being seen as racist, that countries endanger their own in the name of being "humanitarian"

      Those 600,000 refugees are off radar for the time being because they are mostly young men between the age of 18 to 25 years olds. As a deal, their families will be admitted to Germany, but the young ones must agreed to go to military training as second re-invasion plan is being wrapped up on the brainstorm board. My 65 years sitting on this troubled earth, I nevet heard of losing track of 600,000 people?

      peaceactivist2, agreed, not like this. Although there are many thousands each year who drop out of sight for any number of reasons, mental health issues, criminality, family disputes,principle, the list goes on. :(

      It won't be long before a few countries in Europe become no go zones for tourist and all adjoining borders will have to be closed. Germany will be one of these. Get use to (rape, child molesting, murder and other crimes that target non muslims) this tradition is part of their culture and they are bringing it with them. The only way to stop this is to not bring muslims into your country and deport what are there.





      Our governments have endangered all of us for generations to come. My children and my children's children will be forced to live in a police state to keep the muslims in line until the day their numbers have grown large enough to make us refugees.





      If a European country don’t let the hoards flood their land they are called "far right" "racist" "Nazis" and "xenophobic". If they let them in, their country, their lives, their descendants lives will be torn apart. Which one is easier to live with? Which one does the most damage? Which choice is beneficial to the European country and it’s people?
