AfD leader: Violent African mob that stopped deportation must leave
After a mob of Africans prevented the deportation by German law enforcement of an asylum seeker from a reception center in Ellwangen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, the leader of the AFD parliamentary group in the Bundestag, Alice Weidel, has demanded the expulsion of all the asylum seekers involved.

It was first reported that the asylum seeker was from the Congo, but it later transpired that he was from Togo.
“To restore the authority of the rule of law, the arrested Togolese man must be deported immediately. All attackers who have resisted must also be identified and arrested. Their stay must be ended immediately,” Weidel told German weekly Junge Freiheit. “Those who attack the state and its officials, have forfeited its hospitality.”
On Thursday police launched a major crackdown on the violent African asylum seekers in the asylum shelter, and there were several arrests. According to the police, 18 residents, who have repeatedly been noticed as troublemakers, are going to be transferred to other provincial reception centers.
According to information from the news agency DPA, several people were injured in the large-scale operation, because asylum seekers jumped out of the windows of their accommodation. In addition, three officials were injured.
The raid on the centre included special forces, paramedics and emergency physicians, a spokesman for the police headquarters in Aalen announced at a press conference. There are currently around 500 people living in the country’s initial reception center, most of them from African countries.
Among them is also the 23-year-old Togolese, whose planned deportation on Monday had been prevented by a mob of about 200 Africans. The asylum seekers threatened the police, demolished their patrol cars and ordered the officers to remove the man from Togo’s handcuffs. Reportedly, the police responded to the request because they were outnumbered and there were no reinforcements nearby.
According to Weidel, despite the raid on Thursday and the arrest of the Togolese man, there is no reason to ignore the details of the stand-off. “This mission contributed to mitigation at best,” she said. The damage to the image of the constitutional state, which was created by the prevented deportation, has remained.
The raid also showed that the asylum shelter had created a police-free area of illegal activity, which the administration and authorities apparently could not handle. The incident was “an epiphany for the existing asylum system,” Weidel noted.
“Raids like those in Ellwangen must take place regularly and focus on smashing criminal and illegal structures and arrest troublemakers; offenders and aggressive perpetrators of violence should get out of the country.”
Civil war scenes, already well-known in France or Italy, were witnessed to Ellwangen, and critics blame the ill-conceived asylum policy of the Merkel administration.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that 6 235 deportations occurred in the first quarter of the year. The Federal Government, after a request by the AfD delegate Harald Weyel, announced the high costs involved.
The Federal Police spent the amount of about five million euros, including flight costs which accounted for around 3.5 million euros.
The security escort of the deportees further cost 1.5 million euros. Part of the cost of the charter flights will be borne by the EU border protection organization Frontex, according to the Federal Government.
Criticism against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s failed policies has also come from her political allies. Prominent opponent of her open-border plan is Rupert Scholz, former Minister of Defense and constitutional lawyer. During an event at the CDU’s Protestant Working Group, Scholz gave a critical account of Merkel’s asylum policy on Wednesday in Berlin.
The asylum law in its present form must urgently be reformed in the face of the asylum crisis, warned Scholz and the current legal framework subjected to a detailed analysis. In view of the 15 000 new migrants arriving monthly, a high number of Germans will continue to burdened for a long time. In addition, the family reunification issue of the already around two million migrants is still up in the air.
Scholz views the development since the beginning of the asylum crisis with great concern. He warned that the right to asylum should “not become a gateway for violent crime”. One of his central demands is therefore to consistently expel criminal asylum seekers. But at present this is not happening, and neither is there an effective limitation on the number of asylum seekers.
Every immigrant who submits his or her asylum application is entitled to an examination of his or her admission in Germany. Due to the possibility of being able to sue the administration, the competent courts are threatened with collapse, Scholz warned. Since there are lawyers who support rejected asylum seekers, a “liquidation of the administrative jurisdiction” can no longer be ruled out, said the former Berlin Senator for Justice.
Apart from the constitutional aspects, Scholz also pointed to problems that were revealed by mass immigration. He doubted that integration would follow since the predominantly Islamic immigrants felt no such compunction. Valid concerns from the population is unfortunately also being ignored by most parties in the Bundestag – with the exception of the AfD.
Scholz drew a drastic conclusion from a constitutional point of view. Because Merkel had opened the border, she had thereby abandoned state territory. In order to get the situation back under control, German border controls should be mandatory, he argued.
The humanitarian argument propagated by Merkel is not above the constitution, Scholz said. More worrying is that the Bundestag has never discussed the clear constitutional breaches committed by Merkel.

Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
