Anti-Semitic migrants could be denied right to stay in Germany, Interior Minister says

Deutsche Welle: The chairman of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, Josef Schuster, told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper that fines and reprimands were not enough when tackling anti-Semitism and that migrants who offend Germany’s democratic values should be expelled. “Those who knowingly and repeatedly violate our societal consensus should forfeit their right to stay,” he said.

The Interior Ministry, which is run by the Bavarian sister party of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling CDU party, the CSU, says it “emphatically supports” Schuster’s proposal. Deputy Minister Stephan Mayer told the Die Welt daily on Monday that “as a last resort, we should take away people’s right to stay in Germany if they have committed an offense motivated by anti-Semitism.”
