In a polarizing video that has already garnered over 2 million views; a German mother of a 3-year-old-boy has complained how her son cannot properly socialize with children in his public nursery, because of only 2 other children being able to speak German.
In a video posted a week ago, a mother, Leen Kroetsch has taken aim at the policies of pretentious German politicians on their senseless immigration policies. According to her, the botched immigration process has resulted in numerous implications including the fact that her son feels alienated at his public nursing institute.
Kroetsch said that she was flabbergasted to know that out of the 25 children present, at the public nursery; only 2 can speak German fluently and come from a native background. This, she said, limited her child from making friendships.
Kroestch says, “My son must adapt to other children. This isn’t integration, dear politicians, integration is a bit different.” This makes Kroetsch worry that her child would feel like a foreigner in their very own land.
“I’m scared, I’m scared for my son’s future and I do not know what to expect next. My son and I feel here like foreigners. Was that intended?” she said, mentioning that she might be “forced to immigrate someday” herself.
The video has resonated with the feelings of many people across social media, as they have come out and supported the woman in her claims. Many people commenting on the post felt that the politicians have lost it with their immigration policy and a massive revamp was needed. One commenter mentioned how the situation was very much the same across most of Germany and that Kroetsch is extremely courageous to talk about the elephant in the room.
