DML News brings you the following information from BREITBART.COM:

Nearly 13 per cent of residents in central-European powerhouse Germany are now foreign-born according to the national statistics bureau, in news that comes shortly after the revelation that nearly a quarter of all Germans possess a migrant background.

The foreign-born population of Germany rose 5.8 per cent in 2017, a slightly less pronounced growth than the previous year but nonetheless continuing the steep growth of the open-border nation’s foreign-born residents, the national statistics office Destatis revealed.

The article goes on to state the following:

The rise took Germany’s foreign population to approximately 10.6 million in a country of 82 million — meaning 12.8 per cent in Germany are “persons of exclusive foreign nationality”.

Growth in 2017 was of a different character to other recent years, it was revealed, as numbers of migrants arriving from outside the European Union were lower than at the peak of the migrant crisis, which saw reportedly millions arrive on Europe’s shores. In 2017, 61,000 Syrians arrived in Germany compared to 260,000 in 2016, while over 200,000 arrived from Poland, Romania, and Bulgaria together.

The report states that Syrians are now the third largest foreign group in Germany, with migrants from Turkey being the largest group.

According to the survey of migrant-background households taken annually since 2005, in the past five years, residents with roots in the Middle East increased by 51 per cent, while those with African roots had increased by 46 per cent.

A January 2018 report stated that the name “Mohammed” is on track to be one of the most popular baby names in Germany, soaring from number 97 and number 26 in popularity within the past 10 years.
