Federal Police Union: The migration crisis continues to escalate
“The migration crisis continues to escalate and is increasingly focused on Germany. The current numbers are frightening, especially considering that the Federal Minister of the Interior is still turning a blind eye to reality,” says Manuel Ostermann from the German Federal Police Union of the “Bild”.
“The situation will continue to worsen dramatically”
“The current findings of illegal entries are already shocking, but the situation will continue to worsen dramatically,” said Federal Police Union Chairman Heiko Teggatz of “Bild”.
And further: “Temporary border controls are currently the only effective way to counteract this development. Because this uncontrolled illegal migration harbors other dangers, and terrorists are also smuggled into Germany.”
