    German Conservatives Suggest Intelligence Tests for Immigrants

    Conservatives said on Monday that humanitarian concerns should no longer be the only criteria in accepting immigrants into Germany and suggested they also be required to take an intelligence test.

    Peter Trapp, domestic policy spokesperson for the Berlin chapter of the Christian Democrats, told daily Bild that the country needs new immigration rules.

    “We must define immigration criteria that really serve our country,” he said. “Besides a good education and professional qualifications, the benchmark must also be intelligence. I am for intelligence tests for immigrants.”

    The idea should no longer be taboo, he added.

    The idea should no longer be taboo, he added.

    Markus Ferber, a member of the CDU’s Bavarian sister party the CSU and a member of the European parliament, echoed Trapp’s concerns, and pointed to alleged Canadian immigration policies as an example.

    “We need a unified policy in Europe,” he told Bild. “Canada is much further ahead with this and requires immigrant children to have a higher IQ than native-born children. Humane reasons such as reuniting families cannot be the only immigration criteria in the long term.”

    Does Canada really have such a policy?
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    I did not believe it would stand a chance.

    Berlin rejects call for IQ tests on immigrants

    Berlin - Berlin swiftly rejected Monday a call by two right-of-centre legislators to introduce intelligence tests for new immigrants, with a spokesman saying it was a "weird" idea.

    Christoph Steegmans, deputy government spokesman, said the proposal encouraged nasty prejudices.

    "It's also not particularly intelligent in itself," he said. "Attributing stupidity to immigrants as a group is absolutely discriminatory." He added that it was "weird" to think of testing migrants' intelligence before arrival.

    Peter Trapp, who is state spokesman on interior policy for his party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), had been quoted in the tabloid Bild on Monday as saying he supported IQ tests for immigrants.

    He was backed by a member of the European Parliament, Markus Ferber, for the Bavaria-only Christian Social Union (CSU), who said, "Canada is a lot more advanced, and requires immigrant children to have a higher IQ than its own."

    Neither party has ever adopted such a policy. Chancellor Angela Merkel heads the CDU. Opposition parties loudly objected to the idea.

    Germany already has a written test which migrants must pass to obtain long-term residence. They are obliged to answer questions about the German political system and German attitudes to tolerance.

    Ethnic issues, with right-wingers complaining that immigrants refuse to assimilate, generally get less attention in Germany than in neighbouring lands like the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria.

    Immigration issues loomed large in this year's Dutch general election with the anti-immigrant leader Geert Wilders' Freedom Party winning 24 of 150 seats.
