CSU-Chef Horst Seehofer history. This Saturday, he is the party Chairman. As Minister of the interior, the 69 does not want to take-Year-old but back. On the contrary, Seehofer this week plays his usual role as a political Hardliner.
To view the got a small round of some of the Bundestag, the Grand coalition. Seehofer invited her on Thursday to the Ministry and presented a paper. The vertices of a planned law are listed, to tighten up the handling with the departure of foreign nationals subject to dramatically.
some 230,000 people would have to actually leave the Federal Republic of Germany. More than half of them, however, is tolerated officially, "a", for example for humanitarian reasons.
according to Seehofer, then you need to adjust these people on a tougher approach to the authorities. The interior Ministry is planning an "act for the better enforcement of the obligation to leave the country". The goal is for more people to deport – and the faster and more effectively than in the past. In the centre of the Plan, the extension of the detention.
"under international law the Minimum"
The interior Ministry wants to lower the "conditions for security detention" – an "international Minimum", as it is in the key issues paper. So required to leave the country foreigners should be locked up, so they can't dive. Treat the Ministry as a traditional offender wants you to. The "principle of Separation" by Deportation and criminal prisoners should be repealed. Even the "judicial reservation" might be omitted in the common law. Then the authorities would have to ask a judge before you take someone in detention.
Also on foreigners without papers, the interior Ministry wants to increase the pressure. You should strive independently for their Embassy to have a passport or "to feel consequences for state permits and services". More in the focus of the Ministry of the interior wants to take threat. Should in the future come faster in "preparatory detention". Who can not be deported, have to take a "spatial limitation", and "reporting requirements" and "electronic tagging".
a few months Ago Seehofer would have provided with such plans in the SPD for outrage. In the past year, the Grand coalition zoffte constantly about Seehofer's asylum and migration policy. Now it looks very different. After the Meeting in the interior Ministry, the social Democrats hold back strikingly. Not a mockery of "the eyrie", no allegations to the Union. "Wait," says the group. Only the SPD interior expert Burkhard Lischka warned, "to create a new rules". Basically, against Seehofer's plans, the SPD is not but apparently.
the Bundestag decides on a new "safe countries of Origin"
Also in the Union group, is being sought on the topic of "low hanging", a spokeswoman said. In the interior Ministry speaks of an "ongoing process", refers to the coalition agreement. No trace of Seehofer's roar á la: "Migration is the mother of all problems."
That a tightening of the asylum law in Berlin, in the meantime, a broad consensus showed on Friday, the Bundestag. A large majority of the deputies agreed with a proposal by the Federal government, the countries of Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Georgia as "safe countries of Origin". The deportation of rejected asylum applicants from these countries should be easier.More about

But whether the law comes from is unclear. Green party leader Anna Lena Baerbock announced resistance: "There, where we join the government in the countries, it will come in the Bundesrat, due to the green Position to an abstention, or rejection." Baerbock himself had shown in the past, but also a willingness to compromise on the subject of deportation. By the end of 2018, she said, who "was enforceable required to leave the country", had to be quickly deported. It was an obvious Flashing to the right and a Signal to the Union that the Greens still willing to talk. Can't hurt – perhaps for the time, according to Seehofer.
