Of the Head of the CDU / CSU parliamentary group, Ralph Brinkhaus, has the traffic light parties SPD, Greens and FDP in front of a German A special route in migration policy warned. After a visit to the German-Polish border, Brinkhaus and parliamentary deputy Thorsten Frei (CDU) called on the federal government to both increase pressure on Belarus and to intensify controls at the border. However, Frei spoke out against border closings. The background to the warning is the increasing number of migrants from Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan who come to Germany via Belarus and then Poland. These are mostly young men, said Brinkhaus.
The Union leader said that The federal government still in office must act – also in coordination with the emerging new government. However, the exploratory paper suggests that a traffic light coalition is heading in a different direction than other EU countries. He referred to that Expansion of family reunification and better social benefits. Most of the other EU states are currently going the other way, so that Germany is threatened with an alleged pull effect.
Group Vice Frei said that there were already 10,000 more asylum applications than in the whole of 2020. After the corona pandemic had flattened out, migration would pick up again. The subject is not on the agenda again. “Basically it was never really gone,” said the CDU politician. You can also see that many countries such as Morocco, Turkey or now Belarus are also using the issue of migration as a political weapon against the EU.
