Belarus route: 5000 illegals enter Germany in one month
In October, the German police registered more than 5000 illegal immigrants who came to Germany via the Belarus route. Most of them are Iraqis, Syrians, Iranians and Afghans, the police said. In the whole of 2021, “a total of 7 832 unauthorized entries related to Belarus have already been determined”.

Last weekend alone, 597 illegal immigrants were apprehended on the German-Polish border. Most of the passports had Belarusian stamps and 18 smugglers were arrested.
Since August, the German police have recorded a sharp increase in the number of immigrants on the eastern border. From January to July 2021, only 26 illegal immigrants related to Belarus were detected. In August the number rose to 474 illegal border crossings and in September to 1 903 cases. Since no border controls are currently in force at the border with Poland, arrested migrants may not be sent back.
Former Bundeswehr general Erich Vad, compared Belarus to Libya. “Now it is Belarus, tomorrow it will again be the Balkans and North African countries,” Vad said. After the “massive reduction of the US presence in Europe, Europeans must not allow a strategic vacuum to develop”.
The co-chairman of the Greens, Robert Habeck, is worried about the human rights of these illegals. Germany must now work alongside Poland for the distribution of illegals in the EU. This will no doubt act as a magnet for more illegals.
Meanwhile, during the coalition negotiations to form a federal government, the FDP and the Greens are said to be arguing with the SPD over social benefits for asylum seekers. The Greens want to pay them the full standard rate of 446 euros per month, reported the Bild newspaper.
The FDP opposed this and called for fortified border fences to ward off illegal immigrants. In addition, plans by the party would provide that migrants who already have protection status in an EU country cannot apply for asylum in Germany.
