German police face protesting immigrants in Frankfurt
Non Germans now outnumber Germans in the city of Frankfurt, for the first time in a German city more than half of Frankfurt residents now have a migrant background, according to data from the city’s Office of Statistics and Elections.
Presenting the figures, which show that 51.2 per cent of people living in Frankfurt have a migrant background, the city’s secretary of integration Sylvia Weber said: “We have minorities with relatively large numbers in Frankfurt but no group with a clear majority.”
Well that sounds like a recipe for conflict.
Turks are the city’s largest non-German minority, accounting for 13 per cent of the population. People from other EU member states make up 61 per cent of non German residents. Entitled Frankfurt Integration and Diversity Monitoring, the 200-page report is to provide a basis for the city to respond to inequalities, for example with regards to employment, education, or housing.
The report shows large and growing differences between foreigners and Germans, with the income of 49 per cent of people from non German ethnic groups falling below the poverty line compared to 23 per cent amongst natives. In terms of employment rates, 83 per cent of German men and 78 per cent of German women are in work, figures which drop to 73 per cent and 59 per cent amongst men and women with foreign backgrounds, respectively.
Weber hailed an increase in the rate of single motherhood amongst women of foreign origin as “a possible sign that female migrants are emancipating themselves”, and called for more research into the subject.
A book published last year which predicted native Germans would soon be reduced to a minority in Frankfurt, Augsburg, and Stuttgart — joining other “majority minority” cities in Europe which include Amsterdam, London, Brussels, and Geneva — celebrates the demographic transformations as providing greater opportunities for “social justice”.
Don't you just love the left's plans for "government by cliché"
