ERFURT, GERMANY - JANUARY 13: Supporters of the AfD (Alternative fuer Deutschland, or Alternative for Germany) in Thuringia, take part at the first AfD Thuringia rally since the Cologne sex attacks on January 13, 2016 in Erfurt, Germany. Hoecke, who is on the far-right wing of the AfD, is demanding an immediate closure of Germany's borders to refugees and the expulsion of foreigners with criminal records. Over 500 women have filed charges including molestation, in some cases robbery and even rape following the gathering of hundreds of North African men, many of them were from Morocco and Algeria, at Cologne's Hauptbahnhof main railway station on New Year's Eve. The incident has caused heated discussion in Germany over the government's open-door policy for refugees. In 2015 Germany registered 1.1 million new migrants and refugees.
