Germany expects 1 million migrants this year

Germany’s vice chancellor says the country can expect 1 million migrants this year, raising the previous estimate by 200,000. Sigmar Gabriel said in a letter to members of his Social Democratic Party that “everything points the fact that we won’t have 800,000 migrants as has been predicted by the Interior Ministry but 1 million.” In the letter, Gabriel called for other European countries to do more, saying there had to be a “common European effort” to tackling the refugee crisis. Germany takes in more asylum seekers than any other EU nation by far.
