Yahoo: “Germany, which has taken in over one million asylum seekers since 2015, on Thursday readied plans to speed up expulsions of those denied refugee status — but controversy flared over sending people back to war-torn Afghanistan.
Chancellor Angela Merkel — who faces a re-election bid in September amid a voter backlash against the mass influx — was to discuss a series of measures with leaders of Germany’s 16 state governments.
Among the proposals are setting up national “deportation centres” to streamline expulsions, financial incentives for those who return voluntarily, and heightened pressure on countries that refuse to take back their nationals.”
Hillary supported Obama’s immigration platform and lost expected blue states. Liberals in Congress today, many of which are up for re-election in states won decisively by Pres Trump, are pushing sanctuary cities and open borders.
Why is Merkel conforming to the people of Germany and why are the democrats ignoring their voters?
