on new year's eve and nothing be done about it. what is interesting is we know that the justice and interior ministers are looking into strengthening the penalties on those who commit such crimes if they are asylum-seekers. as things stand, the only way an asylum seeker can be deported from germany is if they commit a crime punishable by three years imprisonment. the considering reducing to a one year sentence. it is worth making the point that the state department minister of westphalia has said today that he believes that almost all the crimes that were -- all the attackers were indeed of migrant origin. that gives you a sense of

1:16 pm
the refugees coming to germany increased. so if there are 1,000 people on the streets, that is considerably down on the peak of plairp that they had last year. it is also worth noting that pegida did hold a demonstration on saturday and attracted perhaps 300 to 400 people to the streets of cologne to demonstrate over the poor policies of the german government. of course there was a counterdemonstration against pegida on the streets of cologne. that gives you the sense that perhaps the pegida phenomenon is not perhaps as popular as they themselves would seek to suggest that they are. >> dominic kane, in berlin, thank you. arrived in a new u.s. detention center known as camp

1:47 pm
quite yet. that is a tiguan from volkswagen. they are the people who are probably having the worst day at the car show, that's because their numbers were hit significantly because of the emissions scandal that you just were speaking about. a volkswagen official stood up behind me and apologized, said we know we have let down our customers and our dealers. so they're having a rough time with it. overall it has been a good year for car makers here in north america and they are hoping for another good year. >> do situations like the emissions scandal, the recalls that have affected other car makers this year, does that have an impact on the shows like the one in detroit? >> reporter: yeah, it definitely means that companies that have faced those recalls and principally here we're talking about vw and general motors, for a couple of years that has been coping with a
1:48 pm
problem with its ignition switch, it has dimmed prospects somewhat for those company immediately. but keep in mind this that doesn't seem to last very long. gm had a record year last year as did the other american based car makers and they're bringing out new cars, there's a new buick that is being shown here. so after having a record year in which they sold 17.5 million cars in north america, i talked to ford's ceo and he told me expects 2016, mark fields, 2016 to be better than 2015 and 2017 likely to be even better than 2016. >> john hendren live there in droid. thanks so much. coming up in a few minutes' time, the heat is on miami as they look to snap golden state's unbeaten record at home. that's in sport. sport.

1:52 pm
nothing. >> welt i'm happy with the results of present and with the goals i've scored. i have to thank my teammates for that. i that i we all set our own goals and make our own history. those two have made history and are still making it and i think everybody deserves to be here. >> we are bringing the announcement to you as soon as i.t. appears. miami heat, and the awcial , followed up by a loss to the utah jazz an saturday, when they take on the golden stateside yet to be home this season. well there's still three months away from the n ba playoffs but in the nfl, the surviving teams are just two wins away from reaching the super bowl. the seattle seahawks are in

course to reach their third consecutive super bowl. the game was the third coldest in the history of the league, 21° below freezing greeting fans at kickoff. 10-9, blair walsh missing a 22 yard field going to. handing seattle the victory. >> i don't know how cold it was but feels like it was in the negatives. didn't think we got a degree. sun was out, wasn't helping a lot. it was one opportunity for our team to show who they were. when it went dire, field going to but we went at it today. >> carolina panthers will be their next opponent.

1:55 pm
hole for his first trophy, matching tiger woods record of seven trophies before his 24th birthday. >> i'm nowhere near, i don't think there's any reason to compare. i think it's awfully early, we're very excited about where we're at the start of our career, as a team and what tying are's done i can't imagine ever being done again. but it's nice to be in that company. any time you can get in the company of him or some of the greats, hall of fame players, it's certainly a goal that i've had since i was a little kid. so it's just fantastic being out here doing what is left to do and doing it well. >> in the last few moments, the fifa balandor well player of the year has been announced. >> ladies and gentlemen, the fifa balandor 2015 goes to yonel
