A poll, conducted for Germany's largest newspaper shows that 16 per cent support the conservative anti-immigration party, the Alternative for Germany (AfD). That is the party's highest polling score ever.

The poll, with 2 336 participants, showed how Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition is losing ground among the continuous asylum scandals, the tabloid Bild am Sonttag reported.
Merkel’s CDU and CSU coalition lost 2 per cent of support compared to last week and is now at 31 per cent.
In contrast, Alice Weidel and Alexander Gauland’s AfD party gained one per cent of support and is now at its highest level ever.
An asylum row is threatening to split Germany’s coalition. CDU-leader Merkel and CSU-leader Horst Seehofer clashed recently over Germany’s border protection measures.
Nigel Farage has warned that Merkel is at serious risk of losing power if she doesn’t change direction on immigration. Merkel appears to be sticking to the globalist open-border plan.
The embattled German Chancellor is under intense pressure with the eurosceptic AfD surging in the polls, while Seehofer has called for police to turn back migrants registered in other EU countries, in a move against Germany’s current open-door immigration policy.
Speaking on his LBC phone-in show, Farage remarked that immigration has become the dominant issue in European politics.
He added that the furious debate surrounding immigration in Germany could topple Merkel, and could possibly lead to a “German Brexit“.
An investigation into Germany’s Federal Agency for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has found that migrant criminals with records of murder, rape, and drug dealing have been allowed to stay in the country under Merkel’s asylum laws.
German tabloid Bild claims to have gained access to records and letters sent from field officers across the country warning the security department at the BAMF headquarters in Nuremberg of asylum seekers with long records of criminality.
According to one case, the security unit of BAMF was warned about an asylum seeker with 85 criminal charges currently against him in Turkey.
“The applicant stated in his hearing and has shown that there are approximately 85 ongoing criminal proceedings against him in Turkey. There is also an arrest warrant against the applicant,” the letter said.
Other letters also contained very worrying information: One described an asylum seeker from Ghana named Baba M. who claimed to have murdered at least 40 people.
A Bangladeshi asylum seeker admitted he was also wanted for murder. But he demaned asylum because he could face “imminent imprisonment” in Bangladesh.
In a letter from January 2017, an asylum seeker from Eritrea claimed to have tortured people during his days as a prison guard in the country.
In a letter from August of 2016, a Pakistani asylum seeker admitted to raping a man back home.
Even alleged war criminals werealso mentioned in the letters, including a migrant from Sierra Leone who claimed to have butchered men, women, and children while serving as a child soldier.
The latest allegations come in the wake of evidence of BAMF staff taking bribes to allow migrants to remain in Germany.
A poll has meanwhile found that 79,7 per cent of German voters distrust the asylum rulings by the BAMF.
Seehofer, called a meeting with the heads of the country’s police and security services this week to discuss the consequences of Merkel’s disastrous refugee policy.
Bild reports the President of the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), the President of the Federal Police and the President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) will all attend the crisis talks, as Seehofer seeks to shore up support against Merkel.
The newspaper claims: “Above all, it is about the consequences of the uncontrolled mass migration of refugees to Europe and Germany since January 2015 and about the impact of this immigration on the respective fields of work of the three security authorities.”
“These include the crime of foreigners and immigrants (BKA), the extremist and terrorist potential (BfV) and the unauthorized entry and residence of migrants in Germany (Federal Police).”
