Just under a quarter of ‘citizens’ of the Bundesrepublik have foreign roots, up 4.4% from last year, the governmental statistics bureau shows.
The figures released by Destatis yesterday, show that roughly 19.3 million of Germany’s population had a migrant background in 2017. The number was a record high, then, it’s worse now.
Someone is considered to have a migrant background if they or at least one parent was born without German citizenship. Which means that the ethnic numbers aren’t precisely accurate, and that the numbers could be worse, but likewise they could be better.
Germany is approaching a tipping point, and Germans as well as Europeans need to become aware of that.
