Despite lifted German deportation ban, criminal Syrians not threatened with repatriation

There was great excitement when it became apparent at the end of last year that the general ban on deportation to Syria was expiring and would not be extended. As of 2012, Syrian "refugees" were no longer sent back to their homeland, but because the federal and state interior ministers could not agree on a continuation of this agreement, it had lapsed.

    Those with SPD party membership were in favour of an extension of the ban, but there was resistance from the ministers from the mainstream parties. Lower Saxony’s Interior Minister Boris Pistorius (SPD) criticized the fact that nobody should be deported to a country in which he was threatened with persecution, torture or even death. Bundestag deputy Claudia Roth (Greens) warned that Syria was a “torture state, a dictatorship and a country still a war”. Not to extend the deportation freeze was “a scandal and irresponsible” she said.

    Bavaria’s Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann and Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (both CSU) emphasized that it was only about a small group of Syrians, which included radical Islamists or who had committed serious crimes. The domestic political spokeswoman for the left-wing parliamentary group in the Bundestag, Ulla Jelpke, countered that human rights were “indivisible” and would also apply to criminals too.

    Less than six months later, the heated discussion has turned out to be a phantom debate with a lot of theatrical thunder. Since January 1 of this year, potential Islamist terrorists, threats and serious criminals can be deported from Germany to their homeland – in theory.

    In practice, however, it has been shown that the option is not applied. At the beginning of June, AfD member of the Bundestag Stephan Brandner asked the federal government how many criminals and threats with Syrian citizenship had been deported from Germany to Syria between January and May.

    The answer of the State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior, Stephan Mayer (CSU), was succinct. “As far as the Federal Government is aware, no returns to the Syrian Arab Republic have taken place during the period in question.”

    An earlier request from Brandner to the federal government last October showed that there were definitely candidates for deportation. At that time it emerged that foreigners who committed acts of violence in Germany were most often of Syrian origin. In 2019, around 37,5 percent of all suspected violent criminals were foreigners. And among these, in turn, Syrians were most strongly represented with 12,2 percent. However, the expiry of the deportation ban on December 31, 2020 had no consequences for them.

      This report certainly identifies those in the German political system who are responsibility for the continued dysfunction of the German immigration system regarding deportations of criminal Syrian illegals. And it is, not surprisingly, the German left. The SPD, like the Greens and Linke, are pro-mass migration, and will do what they can to sabotage any efforts to rid the country of jihadists and other criminals who are a danger to the German public’s security and safety. And the powers that be in the CDU and CSU will do nothing about it, because of the partnership the CDU has at the national level with the SPD, which is necessary for Merkel’s government to stay in power. The SPD is thus able to do what it wishes to advance the leftist agenda, and frustrate perfectly sensible immigration system controls.

    The aggressive promotion of Covid vaccine passports and draconian vaccine mandates by globalists are not going as smoothly as they had hoped. Vaccinated people can still get infected and transmit disease, so this clearly eliminates the argument that the unvaccinated bring harm to others. And how safe are the jabs?
