Despite reports that members of the Taliban and the Islamic State are among this group of 12,000 Afghans to be deported, so far only 107 have actually been sent back. Scarier is the question of how many jihadis are among the other 238,000 Afghan refugees out of the 250,000 that have been absorbed into Germany.
In the meantime, German taxpayers continue to pay for the upkeep of the 11,893 still awaiting deportation. Taxpayers also endure the catastrophic crisis — from mass sex assaults and violent crime to jihad attacks — that has been created by the irresponsible Angela Merkel government in flinging open Germany’s borders to unvetted Muslim refugees. Still, Green Party chairman Simone Peter and others like her continue to gamble with the lives and safety of innocent citizens; they think it’s “unprincipled” to proceed with the deportations.
“Germany to restart deportations to Afghanistan next week – reports”, RT News, June 23, 2017:
Failed Afghan asylum seekers in Germany could be ferried back to Afghanistan beginning next week, according to reports in the German media. Deportations to the country were paused following a deadly suicide bombing in Kabul last month.
After the blast on May 31, which killed over 150 people and severely damaged the German embassy, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced a temporary suspension of deportation flights to Afghanistan, with exceptions for security threats, criminals and those refusing to reveal their identity.
The policy was subject to a security review, with Merkel saying the ban was unlikely to be lifted until July. Der Spiegel newspaper and broadcaster NDR broke the news of the scheduled deportation flight from Leipzig to Kabul next Wednesday, though the government has refused to confirm the reports, as is its policy, seeking to avoid the public protests that have plagued the deportation process.
There are about 250,000 Afghans living in Germany, and nearly 12,000 are waiting to be sent back to their homeland under the policy implemented by the German government in late 2016. So far, a mere 107 migrants have been deported on five separate flights.
But the deportation of Afghans, whose country remains locked in conflict, remains one of Germany’s most symbolic and hotly-debated issues.
“The federal government must no longer play down the security situation in Afghanistan and must present a new situation report that reflects the reality,”said Green Party chairman Simone Peter, a representative of several left and center-left parties that have opposed the deportations on principle….
