Almost eighty percent of Germans think their government's failed

The German public is overwhelmingly dissatisfied with the ruling leftist-liberal government’s migration policy, with the vast majority of Germans clearly turning against mass immigration, a fresh poll reveals.

The Insa poll shows that 74 percent of respondents say the federal government – the coalition of SPD, the Greens and the liberals (FDP) – is failing to take adequate action against immigration, while only 17 percent of voters say that the government is taking “sufficient’ action, the German Bild newspaper reports.

In addition, 72 percent of respondents say it is right to carry out asylum procedures outside the EU’s external borders, while only 16 percent say that the measure is wrong. Currently, only Hungary is strongly in favour of this practice in the EU.

The poll also shows that Germans are not only against illegal immigration, but want lower levels of all immigration, including legal immigrants. The poll shows 69 percent of respondents would like (rather) less migration to Germany, while only 11 percent would like (rather) more migration. Another 14 percent do not care and 6 percent refused to answer, according to a fresh piece by Remix News.

The results show the incredible disconnect between what Germans want and what they are getting from the government. The “traffic-light coalition” of three ruling the country has moved forward with a program that will expand benefits to migrants, provide expedited citizenship to millions of newcomers, a relaxation of immigration rules, and plans to boost immigration from a range of non-EU countries.

In addition, the german federal government has presided over an explosion of foreigner crime, with a record high of 41 percent of all crimes committed by foreigners in 2023, including 6 out of 10 violent crimes. Furthermore, migrants cost Germany 48.8 billion euros in 2023, meaning they cost the state as much as nearly the entire German army, known as the Bundeswehr.
