Time‘s 2015 “Person of the Year” is facing increasing criticism for her handling of the Middle Eastern refugee crisis and her open borders policy.

Now, in the wake of numerous assaults across Germany alone, including the New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults by immigrants in Cologne, and increasing crime and unease among the German people, the German government admits that it cannot account for 600,000 of the 1.1 million refugees Angela Merkel let flood into the country over the past year or so.

The Daily Mail reports:

The German government is unable to say where more than half of the one million asylum seekers allowed into the country have ended up, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

Government statistics show that Germany registered 1.1million applications by the end of last year under its EASY system, which does not record much more than an applicant’s country of origin.

German Interior Ministry spokesman Dr Harald Neymanns admitted that delays in the processing of asylum seeker applications would account for some of those missing.

But he also said that in some cases refugees may not have stayed in Germany but instead gone on to a different country elsewhere in the EU.

The Mail’s report notes that the number of men applying for asylum is more than double that of women doing so (so much for Obama’s widows and orphans theory).

The system, operated by the German Ministry For Migration And Refugees, aims to provide urgent first assistance to new arrivals by spreading them around the country based on a quota system.

Once the applicant’s county of origin has been taken, officials assign the refugee a place where they are to be cared for, and where they can then make an application for asylum.

It is the responsibility of the location and state where they are assigned to care for them, and provide accommodation.

. . . . The asylum seeker is then expected to make their application for asylum once they arrive at the end state destination.

But of those refugees, only 476,649 – 326,529 men and 150,120 women – have so far gone through with the process and registered for asylum.

That means more than 600,000 are unaccounted for.

In light of the rising tide of anti-Semitism sweeping Germany, this is more than a bit worrying.  Indeed, even Merkel seems to be somewhat concerned.

The Times of Israel reports:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for “intensive action” against anti-Semitism on Saturday, urging vigilance particularly when dealing with young people from countries “where hatred of Israel and anti-Semitism is widespread.”

“Anti-Semitism is more widespread than we imagined. And that is why we must act intensively against it,” Merkel, who on Monday will inaugurate an exhibition in Berlin titled “The Art of the Holocaust,” said in her weekly video podcast.

Merkel goes on to posit that “reasoning” with anti-Semitic refugees (she doesn’t explicitly admit she’s talking about Muslims from Syria and other parts of the Middle East) should be backed up with “clear limits.”

“We must take care, specifically also in youth (from) countries where hatred of Israel and Jews is widespread,” she insisted, without mentioning specific countries or refugees.

“We have observed in several schools and meeting places (anti-Semitic) events (led) by young people, against which every adult has to act,” she said. “We must also encourage students who think differently,” she stressed.

“We can try to reason (with them) again and again but it should also be clear: (Anti-Semitism) has no place in our society…we must simply put clear limits,” she said.

Apparently, while Merkel’s government is busy clamping down on the free speech of its (actual) citizens, covering up or glossing over widespread crime by these “asylum seekers,” and failing to keep track of their assorted refugees and criminal aliens, they’ll also be busy putting “clear limits” on their anti-Semitism.

What can go wrong?

I’m still stunned that none of this—from admitting over a million foreign nationals into their country to tracking them properly to the refugees’, to use Merkel’s term, “widespread hatred” of Jews—was taken into account before Germany embarked on this disastrous path.
