Earlier in the month, EU Commissioner for Refugees Dimitris Avramopoulos said that Germany would accept over 10,000 migrants and refugees from North Africa and Middle East. On Monday, the move was confirmed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
"We must get used to such declarations about migrants by Mrs Merkel and her ‘GroKo’ [Big Coalition]. This so-called exception of welcoming 10,000 more migrants from North Africa and the Middle East will be followed by more ‘exceptions’ in the future. Nothing has been solved in that matter," Meuthen, who is also a member of the European Parliament, said commenting on decision to accept more refugees.
The politician added that such policy should be stopped and the AfD would exert maximum efforts to achieve this goal.
Europe has faced a large inflow of migrants in the past few years, with hundreds of thousands of people fleeing to European states from the Middle East and Africa in search of a safer future in stable and wealthy countries such as Germany.
