As tensions grow between German citizens and refugees, Chancellor Angela Merkel has said there is no “maximum quota” on the number of refugees entering Germany, according to The Daily Caller.
The refugee issue may have an impact as Merkel faces the upcoming election in September.Merkel, leader of the Christian Democrat Union, has been criticized for allowing so many asylum seekers into the country.
In 2015, Germany took in 890,000 refugees, straining Germany’s overburdened asylum system. Other politicians, including Horst Seehofer, a member of Merkel’s own party, oppose the policy. He says Merkel’s support of refugees is a “rule of injustice” for the Germany’s well-being.
Merkel says she stands by the decision to allow hundreds of thousands of Syrians to stay, although the E.U. treaties would have allowed Germany to deport refugees. That decision’s impact may determine whether Merkel will be re-elected as chancellor.
Reportedly, deportation of rejected refugees did increase in 2017, as organized terrorist attacks committed by immigrants in Germany are on the rise, including the attack by an ISIS affiliated Pakistani asylum seeker who drove a truck truck into pedestrians in the Berlin Christmas market, killing 12.
