Merkel backs expelling refugees with suspended sentences too
Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday backed a sharp toughening of expulsion rules for convicted refugees, saying that even those who have been given suspended sentences should be required to leave Germany.
"If a refugee flouts the rules, then there must be consequences, that means that they can lose their residence right here regardless of whether they have a suspended sentence or a prison sentence," she said.
"If the law does not suffice, then the law must be changed," said Merkel, amid outrage over a shocking rash of sexual assaults on New Year's festivities in Cologne blamed on migrants.
