It’s a good bet that Tunisian Anis Amri is the person who deliberately mowed down Christmas shoppers with a truck at Breitscheidplatz on Monday. It has been revealed that German authorities knew Amri had ties to radical Islamists and were alerted when he tried to purchase a gun. Amri was even detained by authorities at one point, but was released. The German people should be outraged that their own government is not protecting them. Chancellor Merkel’s open borders policy is a disaster for the European people.
Barack Obama’s refugee relocation will be a disaster for the American people. Trump must end it. But damage has already been done, terrorist are already here.
When the leader of a country does not do everything within their granted powers to protect his or her people they are failing to do the most important thing.
Amri shall be caught, but at great expense. He should have never been allowed into Germany in the first place. But when he was detained by German authorities after having been found with phony identity papers he should have been expelled from the country.
Politicians who do not control their borders are playing with fire. Often these politicians make a nice living and then retire with a nice pension. But the victims of their policies, both living and dead do not have it so good.
