No doubt that'll fuel a bit of anti-foreigner sentiment... People love big round numbers. 9.9 million not a problem. 10 million HoboHoboHobo

Going by the dates and numbers provided in the article, a direct result of the refugee crisis. Also that Syrians make up a solid proportion of the newly arrived foreigners.

It would be interesting how long the Turks in question are already in Germany. Apart from Italian workers in the 60ies, they always provided the largest segment of immigrants to Germany as well as Austria. It's also not surprising that the East sees more Polish citizens and Russians.

What surprises me a little bit, why North Rhine-Westphalia?

They were definitely part of the "imigration" (most of them didnt really immigrate at first) wave of the 60s. Thats why you will meet a lot of 2nd and 3rd generation turks here.

The Ruhr is part of it and it was (until recently) "the forge of Germany". After WWII and the destruction caused, coal mining and steel production was blooming like ####, and with a serious lack of males a lot of "Gastarbeiter" went there. Interestingly, a significant portion of the workers there are of polish origin (you will meet quite a few people with polish names), but i think that was part of a longer development going back to the 19th century. I hope Szuchow can give us more background information.
