Another German Town Bans New Migrants Following Violence

Cottbus, a small university center with just over 100,000 residents, has taken in around 3,000 asylum seekers since German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country to refugees in 2015. Several incidents of violence and a growing sentiment against immigration has led to the ban. Cottbus joins the towns of Salzgitter, Delmenhorst, and Wilhelmshaven in prohibiting new migrants. -GEG

A German city that’s become a focal point of right-wing extremists temporarily banned new refugees in an attempt to stem a surge in violence there.

Cottbus, located southeast of Berlin, has been hit with attacks from refugees and far-right extremists since the start of this year.

Brandenburg state police said two Syrian teenage boys were arrested under the suspicion of injuring a German teenager in the face with a knife, the Telegraph reported.

The 16-year-old reportedly sustained injuries that were not life-threatening in what started as a fight between Syrian and German schoolmates.


That fight unfolded just days after a group of three Syrian asylum-seekers, aged 14, 15 and 17, attacked a man and his wife outside a shopping center, police told the Telegraph. Officials handed the 15-year-old a “negative residency permit” effectively ordering him and his father to leave the city.

Cottbus, a small university center with just over 100,000 residents, has taken in around 3,000 asylum seekers since embattled German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country to a large number of refugees in 2015.

Coupled with a lackluster economy, the influx has fueled anti-immigrant sentiment among German citizens, and Cottbus is home to one of the country’s largest right-wing extremist scenes.

Authorities counted 145 right-wing radicals living in Cottbus last year, Express Digest reported.

A community group told local media that neo-Nazis had assaulted refugees on the morning of New Year’s Day, while last weekend a group of around 100 masked neo-Nazis marched in an illegal demonstration through the city.

Brandenburg’s state interior minister Karl-Heinz Schroeter told a German broadcaster on Friday that the ban on new refugees would stay in effect “for the next few months.”

Regarding the immigration mistake, nothing will happen that makes any real difference until these towns start doing what is necessary in actually getting rid of the invaders.


I find the inflationary use of that term “right wing extremists” quite absurd and hypocrite.

The population replacement program which is carried out in Germany->Europe->white countries would have been regarded as shocking and appaling not long ago by the very conservative center of society.

Is not the USA a good example that multiculturalism does not work? Has it not become a pressure cooker for people?


The liberal Germans being interviewed stand there and say “not accepting any more migrants is not a solution and won’t solve the problem”. Man they have been brainwashed. What’s their way? Virtue signal, and say you can’t fix anything, and complain about any attempts to do so.
