A 37-year-old Palestinian migrant, who was recently convicted of sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl, was given asylum status despite a criminal record stretching back to when he first entered Germany in 2014.
The Palestinian, who claimed to be from Syria, attempted to rape a 10-year-old girl last June and was convicted of child abuse at a court in Tübingen and sentenced to five years and nine months in prison, Stern reports.
What confused many was the fact that the man, despite a long record of criminal behaviour, had been granted asylum status by the German Federal Office of Refugees and Migration (BAMF) in April of last year.
So, even though he lied about being from Syria and tried to rape a girl in Germany, the government still allowed him to stay. The day can't come soon enough when Germans realize that their current government has no interest in protecting the country.
