    Dude, Germany invited large numbers of Turks to come to Germany after WWII because they needed cheap labor. This is not a new influx.

    And how did the Germans deal with it?  They labelled them "Guest Workers," as if they would soon return to their home country. I.e., there was no effort put out by the Europeans to try to integrate such populations. Why integrate them if they are only brief guests in Germany?

        But Chico David seemed to be placing the blame totally on the immigrants and not on German society. That's all I was saying.

          to note that I read Chico David RN's response differently.
