A year ago, the German parliament made an important decision by officially recognizing the Yazidi genocide at the hands of ISIS in 2014. That decision gave renewed hope to Yazidis across the world, especially the Yazidi diaspora in Germany. Many Yazidis, especially survivors of genocide and sexual violence, hoped that this decision would mean more sympathy and support for the Yazidi community.

However, in the months since this decision was taken, the federal government of Germany and some local governments have refused asylum applications for thousands of Yazidis living in Germany and forcibly deported tens of Yazidis from Germany to Irag. Some of the families and individuals who were deported have lived in Germany for years and consider it their home.

The federal government's decision to deport refugees and asylum seekers is particularly troubling, especially after the country officially recognized the genocide, murder, and enslavement of Yazidis by ISIS in Iraq in 2014.

I call upon the German government to immediately halt the deportation of Yazidis and to grant asylum to those seeking refuge in the country. The Yazidi community has endured immense suffering, both during the genocide and in the aftermath. Many refugees are also survivors of enslavement and conflict-related sexual violence.

For many years, Germany has been a steadfast friend to our traumatized community, offering shelter and taking judicial action against ISIS terrorists. Deporting Yazidis now, breaking up families, and forcing displaced people back to a country in which they feel unsafe is neither just nor compassionate. It contradicts the stance Germany has taken thus far.
