On the 19th of December, 2016, a truck was driven into the Christmas market next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin by a Tunisian immigrant Anis Amri killing 12 people including the original truck driver and leaving about 49 people injured. An international manhunt is underway to find the terrorist who entered Germany more than a year ago.

According to reports, Amri who was a native of Tunisia left Tunisia for Italy in 2011 after dropping out of school. He allegedly entered Italy in February, 2011 amid the turmoil of the Arab Spring without any ID and claimed to be a 17-year-old minor. He served 4 years in an Italian after he was involved in an arson attack on a school. The Italian authorities ordered his deportation but the Tunisian authority refused to accept the request on the grounds of inadequate identification.
According to the Italian officials, Amri was asked to leave country and the officials lost track of him.
It is believed that Amri entered Germany in July, 2015. He requested asylum in Germany but was denied. The German authorities believed that Amri had contacs with radical islamists and kept a close eye on him. Deportation proceedings were started for Amri. But the inability to definitively ascertain his identity stalled the proceedings.
If the Italian and German authorities had been a little more thorough in their scrutiny of immigrants like Donald Trump campaigned about maybe Amri wouldn’t have committed arson in Italy and murder in Germany. And this 12 lost souls would’ve still been alive. Therein lies the justification of the millions of Trump voters who cast a vote for him.
A vote for trump was a vote against political correctness and a vote for a more ruthless pragmatic approach toward immigration.
