‘No one wants a repeat of that’ Merkel’s migrant crisis regret as illegals to be deported

Angela Merkel reveals migrant crisis regret

ANGELA Merkel vowed not to make the same mistakes twice as her party tries to claw back votes in the wake of her controversial open door immigration policy.

Last month, the centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) suffered a huge battering in the polls as anti-immigration party Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) received enough votes to enter the state parliament for the first time.

Just hours after the devastating results came in, the German chancellor was forced to admit she was wrong to open her country’s borders to more than a million migrants last year.

Now, Mrs Merkel has promised Germany will not repeat the mistake a second time in a bid to win back the electorate following the disastrous defeat.

Speaking to fellow party members at a party congress in Wittenberg today, she said: “I took on responsibility because the topic of refugees was, and is of course, one that polarises tremendously.

“And we have, you also have something to do with it. We’re now working on resolving this. 

“Looking at the federal election, CSU and CDU have said very different things. Especially during times of elections. 

“People want one union. No one wants a year like last year to repeat itself. 

“Therefore I am doing all I can to work on the causes, to give local people reasonable living conditions, but to also implement the constitutional proceedings and to say those who do not have a right to stay have to leave our country.”

And as the migrant crisis continues to engulf Germany, Mrs Merkel’s popularity has slumped to an all-time low.

The CDU was even knocked out of a ruling coalition with their fellow centre-left party Social Democrats, after winning just 17.6 per cent of the vote.

Speaking at a news conference in Berlin after the results were announced, she said: “If I could, I would turn back the time by many, many years.”

The German premier admitted she could have been better prepared for the influx of migrants last year and would consider changing her immigration policies if the public made it clear that was what they wanted.
