Schwerin: Afghan refugee tries to push 12-year-old girl in front of a moving freight train

Schwerin - Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's AfD state chief Leif-Erik Holm has called for tougher immigration regulations after an attack on a twelve-year-old girl. The background is investigations by the Schwerin public prosecutor's office against a 30-year-old Afghan. He is said to have tried to drag the child in front of a moving freight train at the train station in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state capital.

"How can it actually be that such a violent and unscrupulous Afghan walks undisturbed through Schwerin? Who will take the political responsibility for such acts?", said Holm to Junge Freiheit (JF). "Cameras or more police officers do not help against such violence, the only thing that helps here is tightening immigration law. We already have enough of our own crime in the country, we don't have to import additional ones."

As the public prosecutor announced yesterday, Monday, the act should have occurred last Friday. The Schwerin district court has in the meantime issued an arrest warrant for the homeless Afghan who is accused of attempted manslaughter.

Girls fight back and can prevent worse things from happening
According to the Schweriner Volkszeitung, the twelve-year-old was sitting with her 13-year old friend in the train station when the Afghan approached and spoke to the two girls. They didn't understand him because of his accent and continued talking to each other. While a freight train rolled through the station, the man grabbed the twelve-year-old without warning and tried to drag her to the tracks. Shortly before, her friend reportedly pushed the attacker in the leg and pulled the victim back.

When the train left the station, the Afghan is said to have let go of the girl and said: "Everything's fine, nothing happened." Then he fled over the tracks. Bystanders are said to have heard the girls' cries for help, but did not take any action, reports the newspaper.

Holm was also pleased that worse could be prevented. “For the perpetrator, however, there can only be one consequence: deportation. Anyone who comes to Germany and attacks children here has permanently forfeited their right to hospitality," said the AfD politician to JF. “I don't care at all whether the perpetrator is mentally ill in the end or which government is currently at the helm in Afghanistan. Germany must not be a collecting recipient for the violent criminals of the world."

The case is reminiscent of the act in Frankfurt
Holm was alluding to similar acts in other cities. Two years ago, the case of a then 40-year-old Eritrean made headlines across Germany. The immigrant living in Switzerland had pushed a woman and her eight-year-old son in front of an ICE train in Frankfurt Central Station. While the mother was able to get to safety at the last second, the boy was run over by the train and died.

"Such attacks are the logical consequence of a migration policy that lets everyone into the country if they just shout 'Asylum' loud enough at the border," commented Holm. While Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) and other politicians could surround themselves with bodyguards, "the citizens would have to live with crime, knife attacks and attacks on our children," added the deputy AfD parliamentary group leader in the Bundestag . "Where is the political outcry after such acts? Or is it normal in Schwesig's State Chancellery when children are almost murdered in the middle of the day at train stations?"
