Coalition Germany reaches agreement on stricter asylum policy

berlin - The leaders of the German government parties have agreed a new package of measures against illegal migration and for a stricter asylum policy. The parties announced this after consultation in Berlin on Thursday evening.

The proposal agreed that the process for asylum seekers would be dealt with more quickly under the so-called Dublin Regulation. New immigration legislation will also be drawn up before the end of the year. This regulates the number of foreign labor migrants.

Andrea Nahles, leader of the Social Democratic party SPD, said that there are no camps where migrants are held at the border. Instead, existing complexes of the German police are used for the return of migrants. In these so-called transfer centers it is determined within a maximum of 48 hours whether someone is allowed to stay, as CDU and CSU have previously agreed.

The Bavarian CSU Minister of the Interior, Horst Seehofer, was satisfied afterwards. According to him, this is 'from A to Z' how he would like it.

With the agreement, the crisis seems to be sworn in German politics. The SPD rules together with the Christian Democratic sister parties CDU and CSU. The latter two argue about the migration policy that Seehofer wants to implement and came to an agreement on Tuesday. The SPD also had to bend about this.

Seehofer played the conflict high and even threatened with boarding. He is for a strict asylum policy. Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) thinks that the problem of migration must be tackled at European level. She was supported by the SPD.
