Majority of Germans Fear Taking Migrants from Greece Will Trigger New Migrant Wave

A majority of Germans have expressed concern that the German government taking in large numbers of migrants from Greece after the Moria migrant camp fire could trigger a new wave of migration.

The German government, under Chancellor Angela Merkel, pledged to take in 1,500 migrants following the Moria fire, seemingly started by migrant arsonists, that left around 13,000 of them homeless on the island of Lesbos.

According to a poll released this week by German broadcaster ZDF, 62 per cent of Germans think that if the government takes a large portion of migrants from Moria it could lead to a significant wave of mass migration into Europe.

Across the political spectrum, only a majority of supporters of the far-left Green party did not believe that letting in migrants from Moria would trigger a large movement of migrants to Europe.
