And, sure enough, from The Independent today:

How Angela Merkel’s open-door immigration policy protects Germany from terrorism in the long-run

All three asylum seekers who carried out attacks this week had entered Germany long before the Chancellor announced her immigration policy last year

Angela Merkel’s open-door policy towards immigrants fleeing Middle East war zones will, in the long run, make Germany safer from terrorist attacks.

By showing compassion to hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees, the German Chancellor has sent a message to the world that Germany is not at war with Islam.

More importantly, this means that the vast majority of Muslims resident in Germany have every reason to cooperate with the security services in the fight against terrorism.

This is not something that can be said of the marginalised and radicalised Muslim communities of the run-down suburbs of Brussels or Paris which breed and harbour terrorist networks.

You can tell Merkel’s genius plan is working because Germany has now gone, what, a full 36-hours without a major terrorist attack?

Similarly, the GOP must let in everybody in MesoAmerica, or the MesoAmericans who are already here will kill them at the polls.
