Fears about the spread of the novel coronavirus caused German authorities to close the country’s borders to all foreign citizens in late March. The only exemptions are people from Luxembourg, Switzerland, and France who provide essential services—and migrants fleeing Africa and the Middle East.
“At Germany’s EU external borders [airports and seaports], there has been no change in the [asylum] procedure,” stated a representative of the Ministry of the Interior, published Summit News.
Ironically, this means that Europeans who previously were able to enter Germany are being denied entry, while refugees who merely speak the word “asylum” are able to come into the country unencumbered.
“In practice, this means that if a migrant were to illegally enter the European Union’s Schengen Zone via Italy or Greece and make it to France or Switzerland, he can still demand asylum in Germany, and thus must be allowed to traverse these countries so that he can formally request it on German territory,” reported Voice of Europe.
The process defies logic, especially given that current migrants in Germany rioted and displayed ISIS flags when they were ordered that their refugee camp needed to be quarantined because of the spread of COVID-19.
Breitbart published that quarantines in migrant areas within Paris were proving “impossible” to control as many just ignored the law and congregated in large crowds despite the ordered lockdown. Police and other authorities did not issue fines to Parisian migrants for breaking the law because of fears of a violent “backlash.”
A recent Ipsos survey found that the majority of Europeans did not support the government’s practice. Instead they wisely supported closing all borders until the COVID-19 pandemic was contained.
Unfortunately, Sweden has also adopted Germany’s same procedure, despite the widespread global pandemic and against Europeans’ wishes.
