I traveled across Europe this year, on assignment for TheRebel.media. On my last day in Germany, my guide agreed to be interviewed about how life in his country has changed since Merkel's decision to let in an estimated one million young Muslim "refugees."
He told me that almost everything they were told about these "refugees" was false.
He also compared the government work program that employs many migrants as akin to "modern slavery."
As well, the government has finally bowed to public pressure to reduce the number of immigrants, but these measures have only hurt integrated and documented migrants, including my guide's fiance, who had her visa declined.
