Merkel will stop migration from poor countries

Germany desperately needs an influx of workers, but Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to limit migration, according to ee24.com citing thelocal.de.

Merkel, who has proclaimed the failure of the policy of multiculturalism a few years ago, is now promising to stop the spread of illegal immigration. According to the Federal Chancellor, immigrants from poor countries create social tensions in some cities, so that there is a need to stop stimulate migration, making appropriate changes to the law on social welfare.

The new German migration policy that is sponsored by Merkel, Christian Democratic Union and the leftist Social Democrats, is based on their coalition agreement, which includes propositions on combating migration from poor countries.

These decisions were taken at a good hour: the Germans are not at all happy with influx of migrants. According to the Bertelsmann Foundation, two thirds of Germans say that the appearance of migrants leads to significant problems in society.

Konstantin Zelenyuk, director of Schaber GmbH Immobilien, expert in real estate in Bavaria, told ee24.com, that problem is common to many countries, and not only German people feel suspicious of migrants. The main thing is that anyone who arrived in this country has a chance to "make a name" and become fully integrated into local life. A migrant just has to work a lot.

Konstantin Zelenyuk also noted the impact of migrants on the German real estate market: "Newcomers have to live somewhere, so the demand is constantly growing. Therefore, the purchase of real estate in Germany is a solid and reliable investment into economy of stable country."

Despite the very negative attitude of the locals towards migrants, the country urgently needs workforce. The total fertility rate has dropped to 1.4 children per family (to maintain the population TFR must exceed 2). Germany is aging, and without a constant influx of migrants, the number of its inhabitants may drop by 2050 from the current 82 to 69 million people.
