Germany elections: Immigration debate dominates campaigns

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Germany elections: Immigration debate dominates campaigns” – below is their description.

For years, immigration has been a hot topic in Germany.

To those on the far right of the political divide, the arrival of more than a million refugees from Syria in 2015 was a step too far.

But many on the left see migrants as a solution to Germany’s ageing population.

With just two weeks left until the general election, it is not certain what the German elections will mean for refugees leaving Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

Al Jazeera’s Dominic Kane reports from Berlin on how immigration is affecting campaigns.
