Germany Admits It Cannot Account For More Than Half of Asylum Seekers

Merkel's claim that asylum to German "had no upper limits" generated plenty of skepticism from critics of an open border policy in September 2015. Reports that the German government cannot account for 600,000 of the 1.1 million migrants arriving last year has many wondering if the critics should have been driving EU policy? The same critics are now asking not only where are these refugees but also what are they doing? The all too common human behavior to fear the unknown will likely turn up the heat on leadership throughout Europe.

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