Survey: Migration: Majority does not trust traffic lights to provide solutions

According to a survey, more than two thirds of citizens do not trust the federal government to find solutions to the challenges surrounding the issue of migration.

In the survey by the Yougov opinion research institute for “Welt am Sonntag”, around 69 percent said that they “not at all” or “not at all” believed that the traffic lights could do this. Around 23 percent said they “somewhat” or “completely” believed the government coalition could do this. Around 9 percent answered “don’t know.” More than 2,000 people were surveyed from December 15th to 19th.

From January to November 2023, around 305,000 people in Germany applied for asylum for the first time. Compared to the same period last year, this is an increase of around 60 percent.

In November, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) and the heads of government of the federal states agreed at an asylum summit on the distribution of refugee costs and agreed on measures to reduce irregular migration to Germany. The federal government also wanted to check whether asylum procedures were possible in safe countries outside of Europe. Most recently, North Rhine-Westphalia's Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) suggested another top meeting on the topic of migration for the beginning of 2024.
