Germany to clamp down on migrants’ multiple wives and child brides

The country’s justice minister said no one has the “right to place their cultural values or religious beliefs above our laws”.

Polygamy is banned in Germany – but many officials “turn a blind eye” to migrants who arrive in the country with more than one wife, according to the German newspaper Bild.

Justice minister Heiko Maas said: “We need to look very carefully. Forced marriages, we can not tolerate, and certainly not when underage girls are involved.

“Everyone must abide by rules and laws, whether they grew up here or are new. The law is equal for all.”

UN sanctions against Germany imminent.

    I am sure all the things will be closely looked at. And then waved along.

    It amounts to promising to close the stable door after the horse has bolted and is now three counties away.

      and they will call the additional ‘wives’: sisters, aunts, cousins. They’ve done it in Canada.

        That way they get to collect more money 4 wives times 5 children each per month is a tidy sum plus the food bank drain and the halal food bank scam

    Where muslims are involved, the only thing the markelites excel at is suppressing knowledge of their daily atrocities against “others”.

    Good luck with enforcing German law. Invaders don’t come to assimilate.

    The horrible thing is that they have actually tolerated it until now.

    Nicely put, but how are you going to put it into action. I have a better idea. Don’t let them in to begin with. They are already lawbreakers when they arrive.

      Inviting and letting them in was the equivalent of the horse bolting.

    Given the lack of consent for girls in Islamic marriage I would favor refusing to recognize any of them, even one.
