Zel already adressed your points, so I will only point out what I have already said in this thread. It is precisely because there are almost no immigrants to the region that blaming immigrants is nothing but scapegoating.
Right-wing parties in Europe have made huge electoral gains because of harmful immigration. This is the case in France and this is the case in Germany.
And this is where your ignorance comes in. You are not looking at this particular case, and you seem to know very little about the region. You are assuming certain things are happening in other parts of Europe and assume that they must also occur in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, even if you have no sources or proof to back it up.
The economy of Germany, Italy, France, and Belgium have been in a horrendous shape for years. Wages stayed the same and the Euro doubled the prices of everything.
This does not prove that the Euro has destroyed the economy of Germany (as you so claimed), since you admit that the economy was in horrendous shape before the advent of the euro. At most it is an argument as to why it has not helped the economy (although even in that regard it would be incomplete).

I just spent two weeks in a very small town in Thuringia, and it seemed to me very different compared to the news stories I have heard/read of other parts of East Germany. It certainly didnt look as prosperous as Baden-WÃ¼rttemberg or Bayern, but it looked not to be in such economic depression, and it actually seemed to be prospering.
