Extremely Difficult?

How could it even be considered possible at all?

Citizens

Under a draft law, immigrants living in Germany under a false name would later find it extremely difficult to become citizens.

Well, it still is just a draft, folks. I’m sure they’ll take that “extremely difficult” part out yet.

In an apparent bid to deter asylum-seekers from providing false information about their identities, the German government plans on making it harder for foreign nationals to attain citizenship, Die Welt newspaper reported on Friday.

A draft law drawn up by the Interior Ministry targets immigrants who have been living in Germany under a false name or provided authorities with incorrect information about their country of origin when they arrived.

Currently, foreigners are generally eligible for German citizenship if they’ve lived in the country for eight years or more.

Under the new law, the years that an immigrant lived under a false identity would no longer count towards the total years required to attain citizenship.
