Germany's own asylum crisis


Asylum is a double-edged issue, because taking people in does involve some risk to individual citizens in a host country.

But Vox has an interesting piece “Angela Merkel should be ashamed of her response to this sobbing Palestinian girl”, by Amanda Taub, link here.
  
Taub mentions Germany’s wealth and potential demographic winter crisis (low birth rate).  She also mentions the security problems for refugees even within the country from vigilantes.
