Great to see. Allowing some in, in small quantities, is far wiser than what they did last decade.

Since the US is not signing up for open borders, European leaders are second guessing their own strategy of replacing native Europeans with any 3rd worlder who happens to show up at their doorstep. Nice to see government starting to work for the people they are supposed to be working for, for a change. Unfortunately, Europe will never be the same after they've been formally Merkeled beyond repair. Germany always finds a way to screw up that continent, never fails

Anyone who had been there knows that the "asylum seekers" are mostly worthless criminals who target tourists, deal drugs, extort money, and abuse the dole. What is more, go to the European forum of this website, and it is not hard to see that most Europeans know it.

Fortunately, I am not so sure that you are right. I was in Italy in 2016, and again this year, and while the grifters were still there, it was a world of difference. It can be gotten back very quickly just by kicking a lot of the bums out and letting those who are left know who the boss is. Italy is showing the way.

Germany, however, is probably permanently screwed up.

People who are in the know understand that Europe is living a lie. They are trying to prove to the world that the continent is not dying, but it's obvious that their leaders are woefully ill equipped to keep the lie going. Most people with a brain know the leadership cannot contain the problems they have invited into their content, and when the economy starts declining, they are going to have some very real problems on their hands. Dealing with the criminals with kid gloves like they've been doing is not going to get any respect from anyone.

I hope you are right. I'm glad to hear the Italians are standing up for themselves and their own best interests. I've seen videos of the citizens standing up for their country, for example one citizen chased a migrant who dumped trash over the side of the road. He managed to get the migrant to clean up the mess. Bravo, I like when citizens stand up for themselves and their countries. The citizens can do this for themselves far better than any government.

I agree though, Germany is beyond the point of no return. There is no prayer that can save them now.

I do agree Germany is messed up long-term, but several other European nations have seen the light, and should be applauded for keeping these people offshore.

Actually a high proportion of refugees fleeing war from war torn countries that made it to Germany were higly educated people.



About 50 percent of refugees with jobs are employed as skilled workers, Brücker reported.

"This is a surprisingly high figure when you consider that only every fifth refugee has completed a vocational qualification or a university degree before they fled their country,” he said.

About eight percent of the refugees are in jobs classified as 'specialist' such as doctors, according to researchers.

Currently about 36 percent of refugees between the ages of 15 and 64 are in the workforce or employed, which equals about 380,000 to 400,000 people, said Brücker, who heads the Migration, Integration and International Labour Market Research Department at IAB.

"I expect that in autumn about 40 percent of refugees of working age will be employed,” Brücker told the Editorial Network Germany.
Actually

Also German Muslims are more likely compared to other European countries to have a university degree (While 11 percent of French Muslims leave school before the age of 17 without a diploma, the figure in Germany stands at 36 percent).

About 60 percent of Germany’s 4.7 million Muslims are in full time employment, in line with the national average. The unemployment rate among German Muslims (including part-time jobs) is actually better than for the rest of the population. While the Bertelsmann Foundation found that 5 percent of Muslims were unemployed, it recorded that 7 percent of the rest of the population had no job.

BTW have you spent time with refugee and asylum seekers? I certainly have and many of them are well educated and were really well off in their countries before the war happened there.

Anyway the biggest immigrant group in Germany are the ethnic Germans from Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Anyway these days the biggest immigrants to Germany are from Eastern Europe like in places such as Romania and Poland. https://mediendienst-integration.de/...n-english.html
Yet Germany has made it easier for Ukrainians to work in Germany and with this they could become among the biggest immigrants as Ukraine economy is a basket case and there is civil war in parts of the country.

Yet we all know what the fate of what happened in Germany when there was a German nationalist government attempted to get rid of people who were considered destroying Germany (Jews).
