The tightening of the asylum law in Germany


Germany is considered a role model these days because of its “welcoming culture” and Merkel in particular is receiving international recognition for her asylum policy. At the same time, though, the Federal Government is planning to tighten asylum laws and conducts 10 000 deportations every year.

Protests marches were organized throughout Germany against the legislation proposal tightening asylum law that was voted in the upper house of the German parliament earlier this month.
