The German Ministry of the Interior has announced that Third World migrants are welcome to the country while fellow EU citizens are being barred to prevent the spread of the Chinese Virus.

A spokesman for the Ministry told Junge Freiheit “At Germany’s EU external borders (airports and seaports) there has been no change in the (asylum) procedure”.

This is despite the fact that Germany has placed controls on its borders with France, Switzerland and Luxembourg since the beginning of the week limiting the ability of EU citizens to enter the country Junge Freiheit reports.

In a bizarre quirk of the law this means, according to the German newspaper that,

“if a migrant travels to France or Switzerland via Italy, for example, and reaches the German border, he only needs to apply for asylum and is allowed to go to Germany to”.
