That’s what the extreme right nationalists of Germany say; the NPD and the AfD.
I am German, living in Karlsruhe/Germany, and we got a shop for religious things (Nativity scenes, Crosses, Madonnas, Angels etc). My wife is 78. Disregarding her age, she was sexually attacked in our shop last March (on her birthday) by an unknown refugee of most likely North-Africa (unidentified he fled).
We still where about to give a little flat in our house to a refugee. Well the formalities took too long, so we let it to a Jewish young woman (the synagoge is right next door).
The great Chancellor Merkel acted in a most Christian way, and could not act any other way. Remember the metaphor of the good Samaritan Jesus gave His listeners. Actually Jesus warned in Mt 10,5 not to go to the places of the Samaritans, as they where infidel, but now Jesus made clear, that no-one is entitled to say this or that peoples are bad, by emphasizing that all humans are loved by God, and all the humanity consists of 7 billions of individuals.
What should the real good Chancellor Frau Merkel have done? Should she have let the refugees - men, women, children - perish on the border?
Let’s in all these fast assessments we so often tend to stete, first consider as to - WHAT WOULD JESUS HAVE DONE?
Before Merkel we had the atheist Gerhard Schröder as Chancellor. He probably had acted different. I don’t know. He’s happy not to be in charge of any solution - which one so ever. Europe hasn’t found one yet, as there is no satisfying solution to the huge challenge and problem.
Yes, the masses of refugees who moreover so Moslems, are a huge problem. But God never said we live in a world without problems. Problems even keep increasing world-wide.
Yes, the „Arab Spring“ for years now causes much distress and suffering among masses of people who see the only solution in flight. And yes, with these masses of refugees on the flight certainly also a number of real bad people come along too with that big stream of refugees we truly can’t watch perishing on our borders. In any mass of people you got some evil ones too.
Yes, not only the bad ones, bring us problems, but the masses with their very much different culture and religion does too.
But how should we differ in the masses between good people and bad people? Even more so, when masses wait and press after them?
Most of them also suffer a post-war-syndrome, many children are traumatized. Aren’t we all called to help the least among us, and when we did, we helped Jesus, for he called even the least, His brother and sister.
Mt 18,5 - Mt 25,45 and many others.
Chancellor Merkel - daughter of a great priest, acted as the Gospel told her to act. Should we blame her for acting Christian-like? OK - many Germans do blame her similar as you did. But how could we then justify ourselves before Christ?
