Today on The Day, the political party winning votes with every new terror alert - the Alternative for Germany (AfD). But what kind of alternative? DW's Brent Goff puts that question to one of the party's leaders, Alexander Gauland.
Alexander Gauland is one of two candidates leading the far-right, nationalist AfD into Germany's federal election this September - and he's known for his controversial, headline-grabbing statements.
Alexander Gauland, the top candidate for the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany, has told DW there should be a clear path for repatriating migrants. Accepting refugees is not in Germany's interest, he said.
Frauke Petry, the face of the nationalist Alternative for Germany, has suffered a blow to her political career weeks before the Bundestag elections. Even her AfD colleagues have dropped her as prosecutors ready charges.
A committee in Saxony has unanimously recommended that AfD co-chair Frauke Petry's immunity be lifted due to suspected perjury. The nationalist lawmaker is suspected of lying under oath about campaign finance in 2014.
