Even if it wasn’t in the German constitution, the people have a right to resist tyranny. Unalienable rights are not bequeathed by parliament or congress, but by our creator, no man can put them asunder.
One of Germany’s most senior constitutional judges has said Angela Merkel’s government is violating the country’s constitution by failing to protect its borders.
In a report commissioned by Mrs Merkel’s partners, the Christian Social Union (CSU), Udo di Fabio says the federal government is constitutionally obliged to take control of border security when European institutions are impaired.
Mr. di Fabio, himself from an immigrant family, adds that the overwhelming migrant influx, and the subsequent suspension of the Dublin Convention, means that the German government is therefore obliged to step in, but has so far failed to do so adequately. In doing so, they committed a “historic breach of law”, N-TV reports.
Taking a shot at Merkel’s appeals to keep the borders open due to compassion for refugees fleeing war and persecution, he adds:
“The Basic Law does not guarantee the protection of all people worldwide through de facto or legal entry permits.”
The report will be of particular concern to the German authorities since article 20(4) of the German constitution says citizens have a right to “resist” any person seeking to violate the country’s constitutional order, “if no other remedy is available”.
It reads: “All Germans shall have the right to resist any person seeking to abolish this constitutional order, if no other remedy is available”.
