German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer will propose sending Syrians back to their country if they have committed crimes or pose a threat to the security of Germany.
Seehofer will bring this up in consultation with ministers from the sixteen states. In 2012, it was established in the country that Syrians could not be deported to their country of origin.
That was a year after the start of the Syrian Civil War, which is now over almost everywhere in that country. Most and most of Syria is once again firmly in the hands of the Assad family, who have ruled Syria with a heavy hand for some 50 years and tolerate no opposition.
During the war, hundreds of thousands of Syrians fled to Germany, mainly thanks to the hospitable policies of Chancellor Angela Merkel. She almost invited them in 2015, by proclaiming that Germany could handle that and would not send anyone back.
Of the more than one million Syrians who moved to Europe, an estimated 770,000 have settled as asylum seekers in the Federal Republic.
The question of whether Syrians who would not be entitled to asylum because they commit crimes or have terrorist plans can be deported has recently come to the fore.
In October, a Syrian who had already committed crimes in Dresden stabbed a 55-year-old German with a knife and seriously injured another.
