When you open your borders, you abandon your security. No amount of humanitarian or ideological special pleading can change this simple and straightforward fact.
The German government pleaded for calm on Monday after the arrest of a teenage Afghan asylum seeker for the alleged rape and murder of a German student triggered fresh criticism of the country's liberal refugee policy.
The anti-migrant Alternative for Germany party (AfD) blamed the crime on the "uncontrolled" influx of foreigners, while the head of a police union warned of the "dangers that always go along with massive immigration".
The 17-year-old suspect, who arrived in Germany in 2015 as an unaccompanied minor, was arrested in the southwestern town of Freiburg on Friday after his DNA was found at the crime scene and he was identified on CCTV.
The chairman of the DPoIG police union, Rainer Wendt, said the killing could have been prevented.
"We wouldn't have this victim, and so many others, if our country had been better prepared for the dangers that always go along with massive immigration," he told Bild.
But how do you prepare for the arrival of a million mostly young men who have been taught from birth to feel superior to you and to take advantage of you? Who believe that women and non-Muslims are inferiors and their property to dispose of as they please by the will of Allah.
You prepare for that with a really big wall to keep them out. And you deport
them when they do show up.
