Austria sees more asylum applications than births in 2015
Austria saw more asylum applications in 2015 than it saw births, President Heinz Fischer announced Wednesday, in a dramatic new perspective on the impact of the refugee crisis.
Fischer said Austria received 88,000 applications last year, while the number of live births was estimated at 82,000 in 2014.
"[This] cannot become a permanent state of affairs," he told the Council of Europe.
