A city in Germany is making a splash all across the Internet after temporarily banning new refugees as a means of putting a surge of violence citizens have experienced lately to an end.

Cottbus, which is located just southeast of Berlin, has experienced many attacks from refugees and what the city calls “right-wing extremists” ever since the beginning of the year.

Brandenburg state police said two Syrian teenage boys were arrested under the suspicion of injuring a German teenager in the face with a knife, the Telegraph reported.


The 16-year-old reportedly sustained injuries that were not life-threatening in what started as a fight between Syrian and German schoolmates.

That fight unfolded just days after a group of three Syrian asylum-seekers, aged 14, 15 and 17, attacked a man and his wife outside a shopping center, police told the Telegraph. Officials handed the 15-year-old a “negative residency permit” effectively ordering him and his father to leave the city.


Cottbus, a small university center with just over 100,000 residents, has taken in around 3,000 asylum seekers since embattled German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country to a large number of refugees in 2015.

Coupled with a lackluster economy, the influx has fueled anti-immigrant sentiment among German citizens, and Cottbus is home to one of the country’s largest right-wing extremist scenes.

Authorities in the area have counted 145 right-wing radicals living in Cottbus, though how they know where these people live is sort of creepy.

A local group in the community told the media that Neo-Nazis have assaulted refugees ever since the morning of New Year’s Day. According to these folks a group of 100 Neo-Nazis, wearing masks, marched through the city as part of an illegal protest.

Interior Minister Karl-Heinz Schroeter spoke with a German broadcaster stating the ban on refugees would “stay in effect for the next few months.”

City officials are also taking other precautions to subdue the violence in Cottbus including increased video surveillance, more police officers on the streets, 10 additional social worker positions in local schools, and more.

A spokesperson for the Cottbus police spoke with The Telegraph stating that officers were being deployed daily on foot patrols starting from late afternoon to evening.

Interestingly, Cottbus isn’t the first town in Germany to impose a ban on refugees. In 2017, the cities of Salzgitter, Delmenhorst, and Wilhelmshaven in what is known as the Lower Saxony also put up a similar ban.

At the end of the day, each city, whether in America or abroad is responsible for taking the right measures to ensure the safety of its citizens and sometimes that means making a really tough call, like banning troublemakers from your city.

Now, in this case, the Neo-Nazis are evil pieces of garbage, but that still doesn’t excuse the many refugees who have flooded Germany and other parts of Europe and committed awful crimes against local citizens. At some point, you have to draw a line in the sand.

The real question is, how much more do we here in America have to take before we do the same?
