Implant A Chip In Me While You’re At It

So much for the infamous German obsession with privacy and data security.

Impf

“They’re from the government and they’re here to help us, honey. What could possibly go wrong?”

Most Germans keen on COVID vaccination passport – Around 60% of Germans surveyed for a new poll said they were in favor of immunity passports. Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed her support, albeit only when most residents have been offered the shot.

“When we have made a vaccination offer to enough people and some of them refuse to be vaccinated, we will have to consider whether there should be openings and access only for vaccinated people in certain areas.”

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.
