Paging PM Useful Idiot! Germany imposes restrictions on Syrian refugees in surprise U-turn

Berlin has announced hundreds of thousands of Syrians entering Germany will not be granted asylum or refugee status in a surprise U-turn from Angela Merkel’s “open-door policy” on refugees.

While Syrian refugees will still be able to enter Germany, they will only be able to stay for one year with “subsidiary protection”, which limits their rights as refugees.

The policy shift followed an emergency meeting of Ms Merkel’s cabinet and coalition partners on Thursday.

    A positive message for them and whole country .

  • Once they are in there is no way they will be able to get them to leave.
    This is smoke and mirrors. merkel is just looking for a way to get the public outrage to subside.
    The invasion will continue unimpeded.

    • Xavier

      They will disappear, just as 50% are doing now.

    • This was my reaction too. This is just pretense so as to calm popular fears.

    • Millie_Woods

      Bingo. Even Europeans aren’t dumb enough to believe that horseshit….. are they?

  • Allan

    Just heard she reversed it!

    • barryjr

      Dislike, but I read that too.

  • SDMatt

    I still want Frau Merkel strung up a la Mussolini.

  • Xavier

    Where are they going to go after one year? Do you think anyone will be able to convince them to leave? At best she’ll cut off their benefits and force them to turn to crime or retaliate against a government that has abandoned them after so many promises. Hard times coming.

    This is what I was alluding to on another thread: once they are in, you will never get rid of them and they will incite violence to gain power.

    • Gaylord Ponce

      No, Trudeau will welcome them to Canada.

      • Denis

        too bad we elected this horses ass, he is as brain dead as a slug!

  • Too late for that now.

    (SEE: horse, barn)

  • Denis

    and just how are they going to get rid of them in a year?

  • Norman_In_New_York

    A still, small political voice in Berlin got real.

  • Ed

    “No family reunification.”

    LOL… till they stroll in on their own

  • Xavier

    Germany’s new normal: ‘People can’t leave their homes’ ‘Migrants go into churches to disrupt service. They walk in and start to riot.”

      Read the article – prefix the words “people” or “women” or “Shopkeepers” with “Jewish” and you’d swear you were reading an article about the plight of Jews in Germany in 1938-39.

      Only in this case the Germans are
      stupid enough to do it to themselves.

      B”H …God has one heck of a sense of humour!

  • Hard Little Machine

    Oh sure just like the millions of illegals in the US who overstay their ‘welcome’/

    • Alain

      Yes and no. It isn’t in the least that I approve of accepting illegals, but for the most part they are not Muslim. That remains a major difference.

      • Hard Little Machine

        No one is going to track million Syrians

  • Brett_McS

    These “Syrians” all have mobile phones. Even if they were concerned about the ‘change of policy’ they will find out the truth from those already there, and keep on coming.

  • tom_billesley

    Bad for Sweden.
