Germany breaks post-Nazi laws and calls in Army over illegal immigrant invader crisis

Troops from the Bundeswehr were deployed to erect tents and sanitary facilities, despite the nation’s strict constitutional ban on deploying the military for anything other than defence or national emergencies.

The edict was imposed by Allied forces after the Second World War in 1945.
