Germany threatens aid cuts to countries which reject failed asylum seeker "repatriation"

Countries that refuse to take back migrants who have been rejected asylum in Europe are running the risk of losing German development aid, said Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel. His stance was backed by Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere.

“Those who do not cooperate sufficiently cannot hope to benefit from our development aid,” Gabriel said in an interview with Der Spiegel released on the weekend, according to AFP.

In turn, Interior Minister de Maiziere, speaking to the ARD broadcaster on Sunday, said that he “fully supports this idea.”

 De Maiziere is to work out a plan stipulating that rejected asylum seekers, especially those deemed to be potentially dangerous, are kept in confinement until they are deported.
