"Wilkommen" No More: Germany's Chancellor Says the Country Must Begin Mass Deportations of Illegal Aliens

You don't say. You don't say.

Scholz expresses complete support of Israel:

DER SPIEGEL: The Hamas attack on Israel was barbaric. Despite the justified anger felt by the Israelis, does a democracy like Israel have to temper its response, even in a fight against terrorism, so as not to lose sight of humanitarian imperatives?

Scholz: Precisely that is Israel's self-image. But that does not mean that those who did this to Israel cannot expect severe consequences. As I have said, Israel has the right to defend itself and ensure its own protection and security.

DER SPIEGEL: Did you address those humanitarian imperatives with Mr. Netanyahu?

Scholz: There is no disagreement on the issue. Israel doesn't need warnings from German politicians. I asked Prime Minister Netanyahu about Israel's concrete plans for the military offensive. And we discussed the issue of humanitarian aid for the Gaza Strip. It is good, and vital, that it has likely gotten underway.

Good self-awareness from the German.

He is then asked about the Arabs' unquenchable hatred for Israel -- and Germany now being filled with that unquenchable hatred, due to Merkel's "Wilkommen" policy of open borders.

DER SPIEGEL: Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, you made several trips to countries belonging to the Global South in an effort to shore up support for the Western position. That is now likely to become even more difficult, because part of the South has far more sympathy for the Palestinians than for Israel. Many see the Holocaust as being more of a Western issue.

Scholz: The Holocaust was a crime against humanity, and humanity includes all of the people who live on this planet. What we witnessed in Israel on October 7 was a horrific, murderous, inhuman terror attack perpetrated by Hamas against innocent Israeli citizens -- against children, women, the elderly, against peaceful participants at a dance festival. That is seen as terror everywhere in the world.

DER SPIEGEL: There are apparently people here in Germany who don't see it that way. On German streets, particularly in Berlin, there have been violent anti-Semitic protests in recent days. How is that possible in a country that has vowed to "Never Again" allow this to happen?

Scholz: Such acts are reprehensible. And yes, we have committed ourselves to "Never Again." That is why we must decisively stand up to all those who chant anti-Semitic slogans, who burn the Israeli flag, who unashamedly celebrate the death of those killed in the Hamas terror attack. They are all crimes that must be punished.

DER SPIEGEL: In recent days, however, it was possible for these crimes to be committed publicly.

Scholz: The police and judiciary are fighting against it. Because we cannot and will not tolerate this. The authorities responsible for public assemblies must ban rallies where there is a threat of such crimes being committed.

Now this leads into Scholz announcing that Germany must begin to deport illegal (Islamic) aliens.

DER SPIEGEL: What is your message to those who demonstrated their hatred against Israel on the streets?

Scholz: That has no place here. The deeds of Hamas were inhuman and barbaric, nobody can be allowed to celebrate them. Particularly not in a country whose history is inextricably bound to the Shoah.

DER SPIEGEL: Among those in Germany who harbor hatred for Israel are many people with Arab roots. Did German policymakers ignore for too long the deep hatred entrenched in some groups?

Scholz: I don't agree that anyone has ignored that issue. We have been keeping a close eye on it for quite some time.

DER SPIEGEL: Apparently not close enough. Should Germany be paying more attention to who is coming into the country and who is allowed to stay?

Scholz: We have been doing that for a long time. But we will now be differentiating even more precisely. On the one hand, there is the immigration of workers that we need. And there are those who are seeking asylum because they are the targets of political oppression. On the other hand, though, that means that all those who don't belong to one of those groups cannot stay. That is why we are limiting irregular migration to Germany. Too many people are coming.

DER SPIEGEL: How do you intend to lower the number?

Scholz: Through an entire package of measures. We are classifying Georgia and Moldova as safe countries of origin. Both want to become members of the European Union, as such it isn't plausible to assume systemic oppression in those countries.

In other words: if you're coming from a safe country, you can't claim asylum, and Germany is classifying two more countries as "safe."

We should do that in the US. We don't. Even if a country has no oppressive government, we will let people in if they claim, without evidence, that they're being bullied by local gangs.

No country is "safe" as far as the US's fucked-up open borders immigration regime is concerned. We'll take anyone from anywhere, as long as they tell the right lies.

He continues his answer:

We are strengthening the protection of Europe's external borders so that fewer people are able to make their way to Europe. And we have agreed on a new solidarity mechanism in the EU: Refugees are to be registered in their first country of entry instead of merely being waved through to Germany. In return, they will be fairly distributed throughout Europe. The European Parliament will hopefully approve this mechanism in the coming months.

DER SPIEGEL: That will take some time. What can be done immediately here in Germany?

Scholz: We have now introduced stricter controls on our borders with neighboring countries, as we have just informed Brussels. And we want to reduce the incentives for remaining here irregularly.

What an idea.

If German states say they want to provide in-kind social assistance instead of money, we will support that. If they want to introduce a debit card for asylum-seekers (eds. note: as alternative to cash payments, which are sometimes transferred back home or used to pay migrant smugglers), we will support that too. Furthermore, we think it is right to open up community service to aslylum-seekers.

DER SPIEGEL: Do you really think that will be enough to significantly reduce the number of people coming to Germany?

Scholz: As I said, it can only be done with a package of measures. And I haven't even mentioned one important one yet: We must finally deport on a large scale those who have no right to stay in Germany.

DER SPIEGEL: What does that mean?

Scholz: Those who are not likely to be granted permission to stay in Germany because they cannot claim a need for protection must go back. To make that possible, our public authorities must be reachable around the clock so that someone can actually be deported when the federal police take them into custody. We also must finally press ahead with the digitalization of the Immigration Office -- the paper era must come to an end. Procedures must be accelerated, with asylum applications and initial interviews taking place in the initial reception facility. Court proceedings must also speed up. In some states, initial rulings in deportation cases come after four months, while in others, it takes 39 months. That is unacceptable. We have to deport people more often and faster.

Something to note: Scholz claims he's always held this position. The interviewer expresses deep doubts about that.

It's likely that Scholz has supported the "Wilkommen" policy -- he is of the same party of Merkel, after all -- and is simply lying about having always opposed it.

And he's probably insincere about this as well. He sees the possibility that the immigration-skeptic AfD will take power, so he's pumping out tough but empty messaging about mass deportations.

Still, it at least tells us that the tolerance for never-ending illegal immigration is ending, even in Germany, which started this latest round of madness.

DER SPIEGEL: You are striking a new, tougher tone on migration policy. What caused you to make the change?

Scholz: I have thought this way in all of the positions I have held. And I have spoken this way as well.

DER SPIEGEL: You haven't spoken this way as German chancellor. You have left Interior Minister Nancy Faeser to deal with the situation on her own. Our impression is that the results achieved by the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in state elections in Bavaria and Hesse have convinced you to change your tune.

Scholz: Your impression is wrong. I am opposed to tactical politics. It must always be about the matter at hand and about finding concrete solutions to specific problems.

DER SPIEGEL: We have a hard time believing that.

Scholz: And yet it's the truth. Much of what I just described has long since been discussed by the government and is on the way to becoming reality.

DER SPIEGEL: Within your party, the Social Democrats (SPD), your new line hasn't exactly been welcomed with open arms.


DER SPIEGEL: Germany should be able to choose who it needs and who it does not?


Scholz: We are also going to need more immigration. With the modernization of our immigration laws, with the Skilled Immigration Act, we have established the conditions for the talented minds and skilled workers we need to come to us from abroad. We don't want them to just work here, but to live here and integrate -- to the degree that they urgently want to become German citizens. From my perspective, it can even be linked with a bit of emotion, as is the case in the United States.

DER SPIEGEL: People should be chosen in accordance with their usefulness to Germany? Those taking such a position in the past have been accused of heartlessness by the SPD and the Greens.


DER SPIEGEL: Are you not afraid that the AfD will tell its voters: We were right all along, and now the German chancellor sees that as well?

Scholz: That would be a blatantly false claim. Such concerns cannot be allowed to prevent you from doing what you think is right.

Meanwhile, an immigration-skeptic party gained nine seats in Switzerland's parliament. Or bund. Or whatever.

However, this is not a big enough shift to force actual change. More of a sign of things to come (one hopes).

Switzerland's national elections over the weekend resulted in a major victory for the Swiss People's Party, which ran on a hard-line anti-immigration platform as concerns about a growing population have increased in the European country.

Late Sunday's final tally showed the party, known as SVP, gaining nine seats, bringing it to a 62-seat total in the parliament's 200-member lower house where no party has an overall majority. At the same time, environmentally minded factions that campaigned heavily on climate change were the biggest losers as the Greens dropped five seats, bringing their total to 23, and the Liberal-Greens lost six seats and dropped to 10 overall.

Nice to see the parties of Luxury Concerns are fading.


SVP, which also campaigned vocally against "woke culture," has promised to promote policies with "less political correctness."

"I believe the people have given the politicians a clear mandate," Chiesa told the newspaper 24 Heures. "Acknowledge reality, and come up with solutions... These elections were about what's happening in people's daily lives."


Electoral posters that translate from German as "Too much is too much!," left, and "Protecting the jobs of local workers now" advertise a right-wing Swiss People's Party-backed initiative demanding that the government scrap the freedom of movement agreement with the EU within a year on Sept. 1, 2020.
