Angela Merkel Backs Tougher Deportation Laws After Cologne Attacks


German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been heavily criticized for her "open-door" refugee policy, explained on Saturday that she would change the law to make it easier to deport asylum-seekers who commit crimes.

Under German law, asylum seekers are only deported if they have been sentenced to at least three years in prison, and providing their lives are not at risk at home.

22 men of African and Middle Eastern origin seeking asylum were among the suspects in New Year’s Eve assaults in Cologne. There have been more than 170 complaints, largely for sexual assault, filed by victims with local police.
