Germany will soon allow known Islamic radicals to ‘reunite’ with their families under a law passed by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet.
The new policies will take effect on August 1, ensuring an increased flow of potentially dangerous migrants to enter the country legally.
German state media has released key details of the new law as follows:
• Expand the right to family reunification to refugees living in Germany with lower-level “subsidiary” protection, a status that falls short of full asylum and doesn’t grant indefinite stay.
• Grant an additional 1,000 refugees per month the right to settle in Germany, provided they have relatives with subsidiary status already living in the country.
• Allow only refugees’ spouses, unmarried minors and the parents of minors already in Germany qualify for the scheme.
• Give priority to humanitarian cases, such as those affecting young children, the seriously ill or people facing political persecution.
• Carry over unfulfilled quotas from one month to the next, although only for the first five months.
• Under exceptional circumstances, even allow migrants in Germany flagged as potential Islamists to apply for family reunification, provided they can prove to authorities that neither they nor their relatives will pose a threat.
It is unclear how “potential Islamists” will or can verify that they will not “pose a threat” to their hosts.
German media reports that some 26,000 applications for family reunification have already been received, indicating that this government-sanctioned chain migration scheme will likely continue for years to come.
Approximately two million migrants have been welcomed into Germany since 2015 alone, accompanied by an explosion in violent crime, terrorism and sexual assault.
Police statistics revealed that migrants were the perpetrators in nearly half of crimes committed in Berlin in 2016.
The founder of a German refugee aid organization recently made waves after announcing that she was emigrating to Poland as it was already “too late for Germany.”
She also believed that growing numbers of Western Europeans would be following her to escape the disastrous effects of open borders.
