Germany considering copying Britain and doing its own Rwanda-style migrants deal

Germany is considering copying Britain and doing its own Rwanda-style migrants deal.

It comes as MPs in the Commons will tomorrow vote on Rishi Sunak’s landmark new Bill to “stop the boats”.

Sir Keir Starmer is set to order Labour MPs to vote against it.

But senior German politician Joachim Stamp said Berlin should consider a similar plan.

Deporting migrants to countries in North Africa might be the only way for Europe to cope with the migration crisis, he added.

Home Office source said: “It is understandable our plans are being looked at by European countries.”

A Home Office source said: “All of Europe is struggling with the same migration crisis. The numbers arriving are spiralling.

“It is understandable our ground-breaking plans to send illegal immigrants to safe other countries – like Rwanda – are being looked at by European countries.

“And it appears they are already looking at it in Germany.

“The people of Europe will not stomach mass illegal migration and chaos at their borders for much longer.”

Mr Sunak has staked his political career on stopping the boats.

Over 45,000 migrants arrived on dinghies last year and there are predictions it could rocket to 80,000 this year.

The Bill would deport all Channel migrants and ban them from claiming asylum.
