While the Democrats and so-called moderate Republicans yell and scream over U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to stop the influx of Muslims from seven nations known to be hotbeds of radical Islamic terrorists, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel under intense pressure by the German people is now seeking the deportation of the same refugees she originally welcomed with opened arms.
Merkel announced her 180-degree turn in her nation’s refugee policy and says she will unveil plans this week to increase deportations of immigrants especially those suspected of being involved in anti-West terrorism or materially-supporting radical groups.
“Instead of looking more closely at the experiences of other nations who allowed tens of thousands of unvetted immigrants from nations in the midst of battling against unbridled Muslim barbarity, the American leftists and globalists continue their deceptive immigration agenda especially those ‘citizens-of-the-world’ news purveyors,” said former police captain and political science instructor Laura Manza-McCarthy.
“While American politicians and activists fight the Trump administration on behalf of illegal immigration, German, Italian and other European Union countries can’t deport them fast enough,” she added.
Merkel’s German plan will tighten up the nation’s well-intentioned but flawed asylum system. Merkel, as a liberal politician, will use her plan to quell the outrage of critics on the right and the center of Germany’s political spectrum. As in the United States there is a majority who claim her refugee policy is — and has been since the beginning –too liberal and potentially dangerous.
When the Muslim refugee crisis emerged, France, Italy, Germany and other European countries opened the floodgates and took in millions of Muslims from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and other countries involved in the global jihad.
Merkel is expected to announce a number of changes to the immigration processing of Muslims this week. For example, the Germans will build immigrant centers near airports for those deemed suspicious asylum seekers. This will allow the police to hold on to people thought to be a security threat. The actual mass deportations are to be handled not by police but by a newly created department charged with coordinating the large number of deportations expected.
Immigration, especially immigrants from war-zones in the Middle East and North Africa, has been a hot-button political issue in Germany since the summer of 2015, when Merkel adopted a welcoming stance towards refugees fleeing Syria and other war-torn nations.
According to the German news media, of the 280,000 Muslims that arrived last year, 80,000 have been deported. More than 50,000 of them volunteered to be deported. However, according to David Knudsen, a former immigration cop, the reason for so many volunteering is that they are given free transportation plus close to $2,500.00 (U.S.) if they return to their countries without incident.
As with Germany, Italy’s government is said to be ready for immigrant deportations. In 2016, Italy received more than 180,000 immigrants traveling by watercraft from Libya alone. At first, only 4,000 Muslims were deported by Italian authorities. But now it appears the Italian citizenry is not happy with the results of liberal “compassion” and they want fewer asylum seekers from Muslim communities in North Africa (see video below).
