Germany will block re-entry permits for 94,000 migrants, mostly from the Balkans, who are seeking refugee status. Newly introduced and stricter migration legislation has already sparked mass protests among migrants in Berlin in a report in RT.

In a Die Welt internview published on Saturday, Manfred Schmidt, the head of the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), said the number of applicants had nearly tripled since 2013 and now stands at some 250,000 outstanding applications. 

According to Die Welt, the number of applicants in 2015 could reach 450,000.

Berlin has just hardened its migration legislation, with amendments coming into force on August 1. From now on, Germany will reject migrants’ applications for asylum if “their asylum application is manifestly unfounded.”
