Migration to Germany plummets with 280,000 arrivals in 2016
by Rachel More
Germany received 280,000 asylum seekers in 2016, the Interior Ministry said on Wednesday, marking a sharp drop from the previous year.
In 2015, at the height of Europe's migration crisis, Germany took in 890,000 people - over three times the number registered the following year.
"This shows that the measures taken by the government and the European Union are effective," Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said on announcing the figures.
"We have managed to bring migration under control and steer it," he added.
