Frankfurt has passed a Rubicon that probably forecasts the future of the nation and the continent.
Germany has been undergoing rapid changes and Frankfurt is the first city that has reached a milestone related to those changes. The changes have been brought about by irresponsible immigration policies. The milestone is demographic: those with a migrant background outnumber residents of the city who come from native families.
The problem is not that there is anything wrong with Germany assimilating outsiders. The problem is that overwhelming immigration means the host country changes into the country the immigrants wanted to leave.
Breitbart reports, “Frankfurt Becomes First German City Where Natives Are Minority.”
For the first time, more than half of Frankfurt residents now have a migrant background, according to official 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.”
Representing 13 per cent of the population, Turks are the city’s largest non-German minority, and 61 per cent of residents who were born abroad are citizens of other European Union (EU) countries.
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.
That last paragraph raises the possibility of wealth redistribution from native residents to more recent residents.
