Germany’s new health minister Jens Spahn defends food bank’s move to bar foreigners

Jens Spahn, Germany’s designated health minister in the incoming government, has defended a food bank’s decision to bar foreigners from registering.

In an interview on Saturday with Germany’s Funke media group, Spahn said that young men queuing up outside the small food bank in the city of Essen looked “so bold and robust that the elderly and single parents no longer had any chance of receiving any food.”
