Nearly one-third of adult migrants arriving in Germany are traveling there by airplane, according to discoveries made by a member of parliament.
Leif-Erik Holm is an economist serving in the Bundestag as a representative of the Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) party, and upon receiving data from the federal government, he revealed findings that would indicate a possible “outrageous scandal” if they are accurate.
After dodging similar requests from media outlets, officials were forced to produce some information in response to MP Holm’s inquiry.
In a reportedly “strikingly evasive” reply, a state secretary eventually informed Holm that “slightly less than a third of the respondents questioned according to their information arrived by plane to Germany.”
“The Federal Government must clear up completely, whether the data of the asylum applicants apply and from where exactly they enter Germany, and they have to turn this off if necessary,” Holm told Junge Freiheit. “If in fact every third asylum seeker arrives by plane to Germany, that would be an outrageous scandal. I wonder how that’s possible with the rules in force.”
