Germany’s interior minister, Nancy Faeser, is trying to fend off claims that she has faked statistics on refugee numbers to hide number of illegal immigrants claiming entry to Germany by posing as asylum seekers since the beginning of this year.
While official figures show only 57,647 refugees have been admitted to Germany, the federal police have registered 101,900 arrivals of undocumented migrants since January, with the federal police data covering only four German regions: Berlin, Munich, Pirna, and Stuttgart. The figure cited by Faeser is 40 percent lower than that reported by her country’s federal police force. Meanwhile, the actual numbers are thought to be even higher when absence of data from other regions is considered.

Faeser is also being accused of even more dishonest when dealing with of the numbers relating to actual asylum applications. The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) reports that 154,557 people have applied for asylum since January. However, this number is 2.7 times greater than the figure cited in the interior ministry’s “Migration Analysis Report.”
Faeser is also under pressure for failing to provide the federal police with October’s migration figures in the “Migration Analysis Report” — the report only includes data to the end of September 2022. Faeser may have incentive to hide those numbers from the general public, as experts believe October saw a major influx of migrants, which other countries like Hungary and Austria have already observed.
Germany admitted over a million new arrivals this year, with approximately 750,000 reportedly coming from Ukraine; however, they are not required to apply for asylum in Germany. Despite Faeser’s attempt to deflect attention from the migration crisis, towns and municipalities are being overwhelmed due to people fleeing the war in Ukraine and a large influx of illiterate, unemployable migrants from Africa and the Middle East who are fleeing nothing but simply looking for free stuff. This has led to 12 of 16 German states to declare last month they could not take in any more refugees.
The controversial interior minister, a typically authoritarian socialist who has called for mass censorship to enable complete government and corporate control of news and information while falsely accusing conservatives of racism, defended her refugee numbers. In a blatant lie she said her ministry only reports on those immigrants apprehended near the border and that the federal police force may be counting duplciate entries. This is obviously untrue, as demonstrated by the difference in asylum applications seen in the BAMF figures.
Heiko Teggatz, leader of Germany's federal police union told the Bild newspaper that "higher figures from the police reflectexactly what my colleagues have been telling me for months.” He believes stationary border control points must be instituted and argues that authorities could then reject asylum seekers who have made an application in another country “directly at the border.”
