It might be shocking to all of us here in the US. But, this is really happening officially. Frankfurt, a well known city in Germany, is now officially a city where natives are minority.
Germany is known for it’s open migration policy. Now for the first time more than 50% rsidents of Frankfurt are non-natives or migrants. And this is according to the official data from the office of Statisitcs and Elections.
As per the records, 51.2 per cent people in Frankfurt are migrants or have a migrant backgroun.
Sylvia Weber, city’s secretary of integration, said : “We have minorities with relatively large numbers in Frankfurt but not group with clear majority.”
Trurks are the largest groups.
Amsterdam, London, Brussels, and Geneva are already minority natives cities in Europe.
Jen Schneider and his co-author Maruice Crul and Frans Lelie assert that “soon, everyone living in a large European city will belong to an ethnic minority group, just as they do in New York”, a city they describe as a “vibrant metropolitan melting pot”.
What do you have to say about this. Are you okay to accept an open migrant policy?
