The security threat posed by more than 2,000 Islamist terror suspects is just one example of how Angela Merkel’s “mistake” to throw open the borders continues to haunt Germany daily, the country’s former spy chief has said.
Hans-Georg Maassen, who was forced to retire as Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) chief last year after voicing skepticism over antifa-promoted footage used to claim Germans had carried out a ‘pogrom’ against migrants,
said domestic security has been compromised since the Chancellor moved to welcome well over a million migrants in 2015.
Having been a co-author of German residence laws emphasising the state’s role and duty to ensure the “control and limitation of immigration”,
Maassen “felt chills” when he saw that “thousands of [third world migrants] were allowed to enter just like that”, he told the tabloid newspaper Bild.
