THE flow of more than a million migrants into Europe has been shown in these amazing interactive maps.
In the last three years more than 1.3million people have arrived in the Eurozone to seek asylum.
The majority of those who make it to Europe are coming from countries like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan which have been devastated by conflict.
The eye-opening graphics show the true scale of the exodus, with movements plotted daily and each dot representing 25 to 50 people.

Only a fraction makes it to Europe
The United Nations estimates that half a million Syrian refugees have sought asylum in Europe between April 2011 and September 2015. Standing very tighly together, they would fit on 8 soccer fields.
Overun French Port of Calais, Mayor calls on army
The number of migrants camping in tents outside Calais has doubled to 6,000, according to a French government official. “I do not know what comes next, but 6,000 is the most we can take,” Fabienne Buccio told Reuters. “Migrants and people smugglers need to learn that Calais is a dead-end street.”
The influx of refugees has been blamed on higher security measures that are making it more difficult for migrants to cross the Channel and enter the UK. Most of the people living at the camp have fled conflicts in the Middle East or Africa.

The French port of Calais is a popular destination for migrants who want to try their luck at illegally entering England via the Eurotunnel. Up to 16 migrants have been killed near the tunnel since June while trying to cross the border.
Over 80% of asylum seekers in Germany unqualified – report
Over 80 percent of the asylum seekers recently arrived in Germany have no formal qualifications, and only eight percent have a college degree, local media reported citing research by the country’s Federal Employment Agency.
Germany (population 80 million) may receive 1.5 million asylum seekers this year alone. It has already accepted more asylum applications than any other European nation, with a number of critics pointing to a high number of uneducated and illiterate people coming to the country.
The Federal Employment Agency has stated that 81 percent of asylum seekers are “without formal qualifications,”the Junge Freiheit daily reported, citing a nine-page report entitled “Refugees in Germany: Take responsibility, identify opportunities.”
Earlier this year, about 60 German universities offered refugees a chance to attend courses as guest students for free.
In the past, asylum seekers had to pay a fee, unaffordable for most of them.
Having become the main destination for refugees fleeing conflict zones in the Middle East and North Africa, Germany has seen a new wave of Islamophobic and anti-migrant violence in recent months. The refugee crisis has driven a wedge between those who support asylum seekers and those strongly against them.
There has been a spike in hate crimes against refugees, with much far-right anger and criticism directed at Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to suspend the Dublin Regulation, which stipulates that migrants and refugees can only claim asylum at a German port of entry.

The migration crisis has given fresh impetus to the PEGIDA movement (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident), whose activists took to the streets of Dresden earlier this week, in the wake of the latest plan to establish an additional 100,000 places in refugee reception centers in the EU and the Balkans. The demonstration was met by around 1,500 counter-protesters.
The protest on Monday came just one week after thousands of PEGIDA supporters flooded central Dresden to mark the anniversary of the organization’s founding.
Muslim Migrants March Through Hannover and Claim Germany For Allah
Last week in the town of Hannover in Germany, Muslim migrants, no longer pretending to be “refugees”, marched through the city streets waving the black flag of ISIS and claiming the land for Allah. I don’t know how many times we have to say it – but – they are not refugees and they are notmigrants. They are Islamic jihadis who are acting en masse to claim Europe for Allah and Islam. They are not assimilating and they will not assimilate into the culture of their host nations. They will demand that you submit to the Sharia, and guess what? That’s exactly what’s happening.
In England, it has already happened.
If you ever wanted to know what it was like to watch the downfall of a major nation, you’re looking at it. This is what they desperately want to do in America, and Obama is helping them to do it.
