Germany’s Merkel Says Open-Border Refugee Policy Has Brought in Terrorists

Merkel made her comment at a rally in eastern German for her Christian Democratic Union Party, Reuters reported.

In part, the refugee flow was even used to smuggle terrorists,” Merkel said.

Merkel has been one of Europe’s most important proponents of opening up Europe’s borders to refugees fleeing Syria as well as other parts of the Middle East and North Africa. Her effort to open Germany’s borders and those of other European countries has led to growing push back throughout Europe.

Germany has also seen a sharp rise in crime among refugees, especially sexual assaults. This has led to massive protests throughout Germany.
