Asylum requests in Germany back to pre-Covid levels

In June 2021, for the first time since the beginning of the Corona crisis, more than 10 000 people officially applied for asylum in Germany in one month.

    This new increase in asylum applications was reported by the Bild newspaper, citing Mathias Middelberg, the domestic policy spokesman for the CDU/CSU parliamentary group. Officially, the numbers will not be announced until next week.

    The newspaper quoted the 56-year-old Middelberg with the statement: “In June we will again exceed the 10 000 limit for initial asylum applications. That is a significant increase of a good 20 percent compared to the previous month of May.”

    This means that the number has once again equalled that of February 2020, the same as before the Corona pandemic. The good weather, the increasing immigration pressure via the Mediterranean route and the obvious political unwillingness of the Merkel government to curb the mass immigration of asylum-seeking Africans and Arabs to Germany are likely to have contributed to this development.

    This trend is unlikely to change in the coming weeks and months. According to Bild, the CDU politician Middelberg is also pessimistic: “There is much to suggest that we will have more asylum applications this year than in 2020 (102 581 initial applications). The end of the Corona travel restrictions is noticeable. Above all, however, the influx of migrants via the Mediterranean route to Italy and Spain is currently growing massively.”

    Most of these asylum seekers are reported to be from Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria. Many are young men, and hardly any of them have any training. It is worth mentioning that none of these countries are at war, trashing the notion of “asylum seekers”. As a rule, they are not politically persecuted, nor are they fleeing from any conflict or civil unrest. At best, many flee from the police in their country, who are after them with an arrest warrant.
