Germany Discusses Lifting Ban on Deporting Syrians

The German government said it is considering whether to allow the deportation of some Syrian asylum seekers back to their home country in the latest sign that ruling conservatives are rethinking Chancellor Angela Merkel’s pro-immigration policies. The Interior Ministry, controlled by the chancellor’s conservative bloc, said on Friday it was examining whether Syrian refugees who commit crimes or support terror organizations should be deported back to Syria. Such deportations are currently banned. A chorus of right-of-center politicians has called for such a change after Ms. Merkel said in late October that she would relinquish the chairmanship of her conservative Christian Democratic Union at the party’s convention in early December.
“If the security situation permits, it should be possible to deport (to Syria) criminals or people who pose a terror-related risk,” Roland Wöller, interior minister of the state of Saxony, told RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland, a group of regional dailies, in an interview published Friday. This followed a similar argument by Joachim Herrmann, his counterpart in Bavaria, in an interview with the Rheinische Post daily this week. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer and his counterparts in Germany’s 16 states are set to discuss how to deal with refugees who commit crimes at a meeting at the end of November. One issue to be addressed will be whether to end or extend the deportation ban for Syrians after it expires at the end of December.

And so it begins...about time. There is a fact that immigrants, not all of them, are constantly making a mess. Obviously, patience came to an end.
