The result of the most recent Allensbach study on the subject of migration is worrying.
Fewer and fewer Germans still trust the government to manage immigration sensibly.
A commentary by Georg Anastasiadis.
"The uneasiness is growing" is the headline of a new study by the Allensbach survey institute on German migration policy.
The findings of the pollsters are indeed worrying: 59 percent of Germans, alarmed by the images of overcrowded gymnasiums, see Germany's capacity for admission as exhausted.
Not even one in five believes that the traffic light government, which was launched with advance praise, is still capable of controlling immigration sensibly.
And, most alarmingly, only 39 percent of Germans still defend the right to asylum.
This is the lowest value ever measured.
No wonder citizens are becoming increasingly concerned
What warners have always said is now true: Anyone who overstretches the right to asylum jeopardizes its acceptance.
Unfortunately, the traffic light keeps sending the wrong signals out into the world: instead of better protecting the borders and deporting criminals, the government is creating new incentives for migration by making it easier to acquire citizenship and getting in the way of the EU at the external borders.
Instead of slowing down the influx of low-skilled people, the Greens glorify the uncontrolled immigration from foreign cultures as a contribution to alleviating the labor shortage.
And instead of making the migration crisis a top priority, the chancellor is skipping the refugee summit.
You can't clearly express your disinterest.
No wonder, then, that the citizens are becoming increasingly concerned and that the AfD is regaining strength after a phase of stagnation.
If you don't solve problems, you leave them to others.
Germany overdoes itself in asylum policy as in climate policy: here through inaction, there through excessive activities such as crazy (gas heating) bans.
Both overwhelm the citizens, both culturally and financially.
There are many reasons for the “loss of trust” that Robert Habeck was just lamenting so theatrically – but others than the climate minister says.
