Population Soars in Germany, All Thanks to Refugees

Nice work, Chancellor Merkel.

Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the doors to Germany wide and let in hundreds of thousands of migrants. Now, the country is soaring in population due to this mass migration.

Breitbart London reports:

The statistics from the German Federal Statistical Office show that despite the very low birthrate in Germany, the population has continued to grow through mass migration. While the population grew by 346,000 in 2016, the numbers are still well below the growth of 978,000 in 2015 during the height of the migrant crisis, Die Welt reports.

According to the statistics office, 498,000 individuals migrated to Germany in total in 2016 but the German birth rate has remained very low with 118,000 more people dying in Germany than were born.

The number of foreigners as a part of the overall German population has also increased from 10.5 per cent in 2015 to 11.2 per cent in 2016 and the number is expected to continue growing in the future.

Last year, the city of Frankfurt became the first in the country where natives became the minority. The cost of this influx is astronomical, making its way into the billions.

Predictions are dire. Asylum seekers and other migrants are pegged to be the “sole driver of growth” in Germany for the time being, especially if the native birth rate remains low. It is estimated that 450,000 people moved to Germany last year. Germans are also dying at a faster rate than are born contributing to these deficits.

Add to all of this the rising crime rates across Germany and the recipe Merkel has whipped up is a disaster soup. However, you can’t say she wasn’t warned. Apparently, this is exactly what she wanted.
