The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has pledged to get rid of at least 200,000 more migrants a year than it takes in as part of its draft election manifesto released yesterday.
The populist party has demanded the closure of the nation’s borders, restriction of Islamic practices and promised to fight against the “oligarchy” in its election programme.
In their manifesto, the AfD wrote: “The expatriation of criminal migrants should be possible: firstly, in cases of serious criminality within ten years of naturalisation.
“Secondly, for migrants in terrorist organisations (for example, ISIS); thirdly when belonging to criminal clans, even if the deportees thereby become stateless.”
The measures would only apply to first generation migrants who had managed to obtain German citizenship after arrival, the party confirmed.
Currently poling at around 11 per cent, the AfD is expected to swoop its first MPs following the election later this year.
The party believes that “Islam is not part of German” – despite 4.5million Muslims living in the country.
The group claimed that Germany is “losing its cultural identity because of a flawed notion of tolerance” and that they “want to pass on to coming generations a country that is still recognisable as our Germany”.
Founded in 2013, the Eurosceptic group has also denounced all mainstream political parties in Germany for abandoning ordinary voters.
The party added that it wants to “end of the euro experiment” and return to sovereign national governments.
Under the leadership of Franke Petry and Jörg Meuthen, the party has representation in ten of Germany’s 16 state parliaments.
The party narrowly missed the five per cent cut-off for representation in the 2013 election, with 4.7 per cent.
It has also previously called for a official investigation into the opening of borders which brought more than one million migrants into Germany from 2015.
