Around 90 people with a Syrian passport who are trusted by the authorities to carry out attacks live in Germany.

According to information from WELT AM SONNTAG, after the general ban on deportation to Syria, several federal states are now preparing for the possibility of deportations to the country.

“Wherever legally and actually possible, we do everything possible to get such people out of the country.

And that must also apply to people who come to us from Syria, ”said Baden-Württemberg Interior Minister Thomas Strobl (CDU).

Bavaria's Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) expressed a similar opinion: "People who commit serious crimes in our country or appear as threats cannot expect to find protection and refuge with us." To refrain from deportations only because diplomatic relations about the Assad regime is missing, is hardly negotiable.


Saxony's Interior Minister Roland Wöller (CDU) advocates establishing contact with the Syrian government via Jordan or Lebanon.

He considers it necessary to carry out individual deportations there.

Because threats and serious criminals in Germany should not be protected from this.

As a precaution, the house of Schleswig-Holstein's Interior Minister Sabine Sütterlin-Waack (CDU) asked the immigration authorities "to submit any cases in which a specific possibility of deportation to Syria should then be presented to the Interior Ministry for preliminary examination."

Hesse's Minister of the Interior Peter Beuth (CDU) has checked in which cases “there is a special need for prioritized deportation.” His house wants to “promote” this as far as possible in coordination with the responsible federal authorities.

Other Union-led interior ministries were cautious: Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saarland and Saxony-Anhalt are still examining what follows from the decision of the Interior Ministers' Conference to lift the ban on deportation.


The SPD-led internal departments in Berlin, Bremen, Hamburg and Lower Saxony, on the other hand, do not see any requirements for deportations to Syria.

While the Minister of Integration in North Rhine-Westphalia, Joachim Stamp (FDP), is open to this, his colleague Anne Spiegel (Greens) in Rhineland-Palatinate and Migration Minister Dirk Adams (Greens) in Thuringia strictly reject it.
