Actually, developmental aid should be cut nonetheless and the kicking of frauds out of the country expedited, and charge the country from which they left for any costs incurred.
Germany threatens aid cuts to countries over asylum seeker return
“Those who do not cooperate sufficiently cannot hope to benefit from our development aid,” Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel told Der Spiegel in an interview published this weekend.
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told ARD public television on Sunday that he “fully supports this idea”.
The warning was aimed in particular at Tunisia – the home nation of Anis Amri, who was suspected of ploughing a lorry into a Berlin Christmas market last month in an attack that killed 12 people – and at north African nations in general.
Germany rejected Amri’s asylum application last June, but Tunis initially denied he was a Tunisian citizen, blocking him from being sent home. A new Tunisian travel document for the 24-year-old only arrived two days after the slaughter in Berlin.
Several thousand citizens of north African nations, including those with almost no chance of obtaining asylum in Germany, are similarly lacking papers to return home.
