If German authorities have already lost track of 600,000 registered asylum seekers, it should be interesting to see how Frau Merkel is going to follow through with her back pedaling. She’s likely already going to get the boot next election year.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel tried on Saturday to placate the increasingly vocal critics of her open-door policy for refugees by insisting that most refugees from Syria and Iraq would go home once the conflicts there had ended, Reuters has reported.
“We need… to say to people that this is a temporary residential status and we expect that, once there is peace in Syria again, once IS has been defeated in Iraq, that you go back to your home country with the knowledge that you have gained,” she told a regional meeting of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, as reported by Reuters.
