Over the last year, people from almost every political stripe, myself included, have pointed out the great danger in the open acceptance of Muslim Migrants. The EU states and especially Germany have allowed people to enter their territory unvetted.
The concern was justified by the Paris attacks, as several migrants were found to be directly involved in the planning and operation. And now Germany is finally admitting the seriousness of the problem.
German authorities do not know the whereabouts of 130,000 migrants, the government confessed today. It means that more than one in ten unvetted new arrivals from the Middle East have disappeared, somewhere in Europe.
Of the 1.1 million migrants who registered as asylum seekers in Germany in 2015, “about 13 per cent did not turn up at the reception centres to which they had been directed,” the government said in a written reply to a question from a lawmaker from the Left Party.
It seems only logical that these people could have any number of reasons for not being where they were supposed to be. We can do no more than speculate as to their location. But if we are to speculate, the possibilities grow frightening very quickly.
They could have returned home. They could be hiding because they know that they have no chance of gaining asylum status. They also could be hiding to attack. With their sheer numbers, they could be forming an army to take Europe. We do not know where they are or what they are doing.
This revelation points to the failure of liberal migrant policy and the failure of the bureaucracy that the EU established to deal with the mass of people flooding their territory. This failure will continue to get worse as there seems to be neither the understanding or the will in German politics to handle these problems honestly.
