Germany’s governing coalition Thursday agreed on a set of rules and laws to tighten its asylum policies.
Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel announced that Germany will place Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia on a list of “safe countries of origin” .
That means nationals from these countries will have little chance of winning asylum.
Some migrants will also be blocked from bringing their families to join them in Germany for two years, according to the newly-agreed package.
The tougher rules come after Germany received some 1.1 million migrants in 2015.
