Deputy parliamentary leader of the Alternative for Germany (AfD), Leif-Erik Holm has been keeping an eye on illegal arrivals of migrants which allegedly happen through the scheduling of secret flights at night for years now.
However, the German Federal Government has been keeping the issue under wraps.
As early as 2016, there were already speculations that migrants were being covertly flown into Germany under cover of darkness.
Last year, Holm leveled heavy accusations at the German government, asserting that officials actively “cover up, obfuscate and veil the consequences of its catastrophic asylum policy.”
The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bamf) has been interviewing numerous asylum seekers about their itineraries since 2017.
The agency also conducts queries on how the refugees arrived in Germany – on foot, by train, car, bus or plane.
Holm has been monitoring refugee arrivals since the controversy surfaced, however, his recent inquiry was shut down. He was given the answer that they were now classified as a secret “(VS) – only for official use” – for reasons of “state welfare”.
The AfD deputy leader attempted to get details from the Federal Government but his request was rejected.
According to Holm, the government wants to sweep the impact of immigration on the social system under the carpet:
“What is so secretive and worthy of protection for questions that have already been asked to thousands of asylum seekers in the context of the itinerary? The asylum seekers have certainly made no secret of the questions among themselves. The behavior is completely incomprehensible.”
Holm stressed that the key issue of the entire asylum crisis is how migrants manage to arrive illegally in Germany. He also pointed out that it’s also about which neighboring countries could simply wave refugees.
“In particular, the question of whether an aircraft was used on the entire itinerary to Germany is very significant in this context. “It is just about the usual welfare state immigrant. And that is exactly what the federal government wants to sweep under the carpet,” Holm stated.
