The scale of Germany’s migrant problem has been laid bare with figures showing that more than half a million migrants who have had their asylum applications rejected are still in the country now.

Even Angela Merkel is panicking as 556,499 migrants who should have been deported remain in the country.
It appears that at least half of them will never be deported according to The Times as they have “an unlimited right to stay because they are stateless, will not be accepted back by their home country or have medical reasons why they cannot be deported”.
Merkel has created an absolute mess. The message has gone out that virtually all who can get to Germany can now stay, effectively encouraging even more to now come.
The German people are picking up the bill, having spent 22 billion Euros on asylum seekers in 2016 and the country now has a population that is exploding.
Germany’s leaders need quickly to find some backbone and start sending out a far firmer message to those intending to come either illegally or as pure economic migrants. If not, the chaos will continue.
