Germany is in major trouble.

But while immigrants are the cause of the problem, the country has no one to blame but itself.

Germany is one of the European countries accepting refugees seeking asylum, and their open borders policies are having an unexpected result.

The influx of immigrants and refugees is creating a population explosion in the country, causing their court system to reach a breaking point — and it may soon fail altogether.

The German court system has reportedly been brought “to the limits” because of the massive number of asylum-seeking refugee cases filling the dockets, according to the Association of German Administrative Law Judges.

The organization’s chair, Robert Seegmüller, said the courts have piled up a huge waiting list, with more than 250,000 asylum cases being challenged in their system.

The Daily Caller reported:

“The situation is dramatic for administrative courts,” Seegmüller told German news outlet Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND), according to The Local. “We are now completely stretched to our limits.”

Seegmüller warned that a collapse of the court system is inevitable unless authorities invest more resources and hire more personnel.

“The administrative court system cannot endure such a figure in the long run. At some point, everything will collapse,” Seegmüller told RND. “Things may go well for a while, but not permanently.”

Some courts have reported a backlog of up to two years due to the extreme situation of more than 1 million migrants arriving in Germany. Thousands of asylum seekers have taken legal action against the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) for failing to make a decision on their asylum applications in a timely manner.

A court ruled in favor of a Somalian man in October 2015, saying that BAMF had to compensate the applicant if his application was not processed within a reasonable timeframe. The court’s ruling stated that applicants should be able to expect decisions within three months. Under extreme circumstances, such as the current refugee influx, BAMF can take up to six months to process a request.

As Germany continues to accept refugees into their country in unprecedented numbers, its own citizens are feeling the weight of their burden.

Not only will the rest of the government soon face pressures like their court system, the resources to support the swell of refugees are being stretched thin.

Furthermore, the safety of German citizens is of major concern — with many refugees originating from the Middle East, immigrants with ties to radical Islamic groups seem unavoidable.
