Merkel accepts CSU deadline for European Union migration deal

Merkel accepts CSU deadline for European Union migration deal

The German Chancellor is struggling to avert a crisis within her coalition on migrant policy.

In Munich, Seehofer said his party would be happy to see European or bilateral solutions this month that "achieve the same that we can achieve by turning people back at the border".

The Minister of internal Affairs of Germany and Chairman of the Bavarian Christian social Union (CSU) Horst Seehofer intends to issue an ultimatum to Chancellor Angela Merkel on the issue of illegal migrants.

He wants to turn away at the border new arrivals who have previously been registered in another European Union country - often their first port of call, Italy or Greece.

Finally, they said victims of crime are twice as likely to report incidents if they are committed by people who are different from them, distorting the statistics.

Speaking to dpa on Tuesday, Bavarian governor Markus Soeder (CSU) expressed skepticism that Merkel would succeed in meeting the tight deadline set by the CSU.

Failure to reach a deal that can be presented as a breakthrough at the European level could precipitate a full-blown crisis in Germany that might topple Merkel after nearly 13 years as chancellor.

Instead, she wants to find a common European solution at the June 28-29 EU summit.

European Union counter-tariffs against U.S. come into effect on Friday - commission
They range from agricultural produce such as rice and orange juice to jeans, whiskey, motorbikes and various steel products. The European Union will slap U.S. products with a series of retaliatory tariffs from Friday, it confirmed this morning.

In the meanwhile, a poll published on Tuesday in the newspaper BILD suggests that the CDU and CSU have suffered a loss of public trust as a result of their escalating cabinet rift.

She said yesterday that she supports 62 of his 63 points. More than 1 million migrants came to Germany in 2015 and 2016, though numbers have since dropped sharply.

It seems to have dawned on Seehofer that if Germany sends back refugees who are registered elsewhere, a country such as Italy with its new anti-immigrant government might stop registering them, as it did at the height of the refugee crisis in 2015.

The CSU, which faces regional elections in October, fears it could be toppled from its decades-old perch atop the wealthy southern state by the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party if it does not tighten policy towards migrants.

More than 2,300 children have been taken from their parents since early May, a practice loudly decried by rights groups and USA politicians from both main parties.

CSU leader Horst Seehofer, who is also interior minister, has drawn up a plan under which Germany would turn away migrants who have already registered in other European Union states.

The two leaders had made a decision to focus on broad issues to leave more room for negotiations with the other 17 euro members, Macron said - a scenario that leaves scope for the plans to be watered down. Its president, Donald Tusk, is interviewed this week with a good number of European leaders (including Merkel, Italian Giuseppe Conte and Spanish Pedro Sanchez) to get an idea of what can be achieved next week.

"I'm not aware of the report that you're referencing, but I'd be happy to check into it and circle back with you", she said.
