A new study reveals some shocking statistics about German attitudes towards Muslim migration to the country.

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.
