Sigmar Gabriel noted that, on the one hand, Europe ineffectively protects its external borders, while on the other hand, Germany fails to integrate the migrants who arrived here.

According to the minister, it is the democratic parties that should raise this topic and explain the situation to citizens.

Over 300,000 refugees have already arrived in Germany, with the largest numbers coming from Syria, Turkiye, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran. In autumn 2023, the German Cabinet approved several measures that tighten immigration laws and should make Germany less attractive to illegal immigrants.
