Germans living in Britain have been cautioned against speaking their native language in public places after the Brexit vote set hate crimes soaring. Race and religious crimes saw a 41 percent rise in the month after the Brexit vote. Nearly 5,500 incidents were recorded by the Home Office in July alone. Source: RT

Maybe you mean Polish and Romanian, no one has a problem with German's and understand the issues they are going through with the influx of Middle Eastern and North African migrants, because the west continually attacks these regions, forces people out of their land to becomes work slaves in the Euro! The biggest causality to all of this has been France and Germany.
