Who would have thought that? According to the GfK Verein market research company in Nuremberg, 83 percent of Germans asked suddenly consider immigration to be Germany’s biggest challenge, a percentage twice as high as the survey indicated just one year ago. This is also a higher number than in any of the other 23 countries surveyed.
And this is a survey that took place back in February and March, mind you.
What could ever be the cause? And whatever happened to good old-fashioned German Willkommenskultur (welcome culture), anyway?
83 Prozent aller Deutschen bereiten Zuwanderung und Integration Kopfzerbrechen – so vielen wie in keinem anderen der 23 Teilnehmer-Länder der Studie. Im Vergleich zum Vorjahr hat sich der Wert mehr als verdoppelt; damals lag er bei 35 Prozent.
