Around 34 percent of Germans reportedly “completely or slightly agree” with the statement “because of the many Muslims, I sometimes feel like a stranger in my own country.”

The report, from German nonprofit Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, surveyed the feelings of German citizens in reaction to increased Muslim migration to the country according to a Tuesday Express article.

German officials decided to allow over a million refugees to the country in 2015, largely from the Middle East and North Africa.

However, many Germans perhaps don’t see their feelings of being a stranger as a bad thing, as 86.1 percent of respondents agreed that “(p)eople who flee from wars should be taken into Germany.”

As Chancellor Angela Merkel seeks a fourth term, her chances are dogged by criticism of her refugee policy. A recent report from a German translator working at refugee camps said that asylum seekers had a “pure hatred” of Christians and a desire to Islamize Germany.
