AfD files complaint with Constitutional Court against Merkel’s open borders
The German anti-immigration party, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) has filed a complaint to the Constitutional Court over Chancellor Angela Merkel's immigration policy.

The party accused the government of suspending the Constitution, paragraph 18, section 4 related to the basic principle of German border security.
“The Federal Government is bound by law and order. This is completely clear; this is the division of power. The Federal Government cannot say, now we find that one law is convenient, and the other less convenient,” the party said.
Angela Merkel has overstepped her authority by allowing entry to migrants who came safe third countries, like Austria, without the consent of parliament, the AfD argued. Merkle’s decision to take in millions of migrants should have been approved by parliament.
It also reminded the government at a press conference where the announcement was made, that opening the borders came at a massive cost to taxpayers. The AfD has accused Merkel of acting like a “dictator” by ignoring zanaflexhome.com parliament. “The chancellor has to follow law and order, and essential decisions, essential decisions that concern our community, have to be decided in the Parliament.”
But Christian Blex, an AfD state parliamentarian, told Sputnik News that the court has shielded Merkel until now. Equally, parliament allowed Merkel’s transgressions.
“The Bundestag should have stopped Merkel immediately, when she began acting alone. For example, it should have insisted on a vote of no confidence, but instead, it virtually applauded her actions,” Blex said.
He added: “In 2015, there was no opposition. The only so called opposition parties were the Green party and the Left party. And these people wanted to tear down borders even quicker than Merkel and her masters in the globalized elites. In other words, we are the only opposition now.”
