GIESSEN – The entry of economic migrants into Germany now appears to be a foregone conclusion.

The regional German daily, the Giessener Allgemeine reported that the situation was worsening as the Belarusian president, Alexander Lukashenko – apparently in response to EU sanctions – was allowing illegals to enter the country in order to have them transported to the EU’s external borders.

According to the report, it is important to protect the “refugees” and the staff in the facilities “from the Coronavirus and to provide sufficient isolation options”. Other locations have been mentioned, too. Therefore, properties in Fuldatal-Rothwesten and Friedberg are to be used, as well as a reserve location in Bensheim. It is not yet known how many illegals will be settled there.

Polish soldiers have so far built over 180 km of a temporary fence, which is effectively hindering illegal attempts to enter the EU. On the Belarusian side however, preparations are underway to create a large migrant camp on the border with Poland. Belarusian services are currently busy delivering the necessary materials.

The illegal migrants are involved in a media campaign to highlight Lukashenko’s operation against Poland. To this end, they have reached out to foreign journalists, for example from the BBC, who are encouraged to create “news” consistent with their narrative.
