FOOT IN MOUTH: Angel Merkel now wants to REDUCE flow of migrants into the EU after Germany has turned into a complete catastrophe due to immigration

MONTHS after she was accused of ‘opening the floodgates’ for mass migration to Germany, Angela Merkel said she wants to stem the flow of refugees into the European Union (EU).
