Munich (dpa / lby) - In view of the high number of refugees, the Bavarian district association calls for quick action by the EU. The association warned on Wednesday evening that municipal refugee reception in Bavaria and throughout Germany was at the limit. The war refugees from Ukraine and asylum seekers from other countries exceeded the number of refugees in 2015. The situation has come to a head.
"Without a noticeable limitation of uncontrolled local access, integration at the municipal level will fail. The capacities for accommodating refugees, the resources for social care and the necessary places for children in day-care centers and schools are almost exhausted," said President Thomas Karmasin (CSU) in a presidium meeting. "The municipalities cannot solve this special situation created from outside without the European Union and the federal government."
People fleeing war and whose lives are threatened at home should be able to find protection in Europe. "People who have no prospects of staying from the outset must be turned away at the EU's external borders. To do this, the European Union must effectively secure its external borders," demanded the district administrator of Fürstenfeldbruck. In addition, the EU must set binding distribution quotas for the member states. Asylum procedures and benefits should at least look similar.
