And whatever corrective action is taken will be too little, too late. Demographers are pointing out that Germany will be a majority or near Muslim country in just a few generations.
There's little that can be done about that anyway.
The demographic projections (for the next 30 years) point to a massive reduction in population and a quasi-inversion of the age-pyramid (lot's of old people, some middle-aged and very few young people).
This development is irreversible. Even if the current (Christian) population started to reproduce like crazy (and I mean Mormon-type crazy), the damage is already done.

Unfortunately, the German social security system is a bit of a Ponzi-Scheme and requires a constant influx of new contributors to pay out the current recipients.
How one working employee is supposed to pay for one retired person (as that is the current projection for 2040-ish) is anybody's guess.

Personally, I give most Syrian refugees the benefit of the doubt - most of the problems come from crooks from the Maghreb (we already had those in Switzerland about two or three years ago). Their home countries aren't too keen on taking them back - go figure.

BTW: states from the Near and Middle East have an age pyramid that is the exact opposite of what we have in Germany (or Europe).
Historians have shown that the dynamic of population growth directly correlates with the dynamic of economic growth a decade or two down the line.
