Merkel complains about remigration of Turks back home
Speaking to reporters earlier this week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel complained that most of the migrants immigrating to Germany later return to their home countries. For example, most of the Turkish university students in Germany return to Turkey when they graduate, Merkel said. Stating that Germany needs more qualified workers, Merkel said migration-related rules should be eased to stop the remigration of qualified migrant workers. Merkel drew ire recently with her remarks that Germany's efforts to build a multicultural society have "utterly" failed and thus migrant communities must adapt to German cultural values. Merkel's complaint of remigration among the country's migrant population seemed contradictory to her earlier remarks on migrant integration. Suffering from an aging population, Germany needs more migrant labor force to keep its economy on track.
