Refugees should be sent to islands outside Europe, says German pro-White leader
A German pro-White leader says Berlin should send rejected asylum seekers and illegal immigrants to "two islands outside Europe", in an apparent a reference to Australia's asylum seeker policies.
"Illegal migrants and asylum seekers whose applications are rejected will be accommodated on the two islands outside Europe that are protected by the United Nations," Alternative for Germany (AfD) party leader Frauke Petry told local media.
Ms Petry did not name the two islands she had in mind.
The influx of over one million migrants last year fuelled support for the AfD, which now has seats in eight of Germany's 16 state assemblies and is expected to make a strong showing in state votes next month.
German media has interpreted Ms Petry's remarks as a reference to the detention centres on Nauru and Manus Island in Papua New Guinea, where Australia funds facilities to hold asylum seekers and refugees.
The United Nations Refugee Agency has called for the transfer of refugees and asylum seekers out of those centres, describing the policy as "immensely harmful".
"I propose the transformation of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees into an office for emigration, which ensures that all illegal migrants leave this land as soon as possible," Ms Petry added.
The refugee office has been overwhelmed since last year with hundreds of thousands of asylum applications.
Known for her fiery speeches to AfD supporters, Ms Petry sparked an uproar earlier this year when she called for German police to be allowed to use firearms against illegal migrants.
Most of the more than 1 million migrants who arrived in Germany last year are refugees escaping war and persecution in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.
