Asylum dispute in the union: Steinmeier criticises language in asylum policy

Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has shown concern about language style used in German asylum policy. "We must go back to reason," he said at ZDF. Especially in digital media "border of unspeakable and unspeakable" threaten to blur. He does not believe in exaggerated political correctness. But one must argue responsibly. That also demand discipline in language.

He has recently received calls from or heads of state, and has also written many indignant citizens. He would have called back some and would n be asked: "How are we to argue here on ground with a sense of proportion, with reason for right argument, when great policy does not perceive its exemplary character," Steinmeier said, referring to conflict between CDU and CSU on more rejection of migrants at border.

Words such as " axis of willing", as IhnÖsterreichs chancellor Sebastian had briefly put into play for closer cooperation between Austria, Italy and Germany, were not a suitable language, said federal president. The road to a common migration policy in Europe is laborious enough. "That is why I believe that we should not cultivate any language that can still divisive."

The term "asylum tourism" is a criticism

Söder means people who want to apply for asylum only in anor EU state and n also in Germany.

The shifting scales, violate values and serve resentment, said Nahles world on Sunday. The SPD vice-chairman Ralf Steger wrote on Twitter, who said so, was "eir a brainless right full post or a nasty right-wing populist demagoguery".

The asylum dispute in union

This Tuesday, CSU chief Horst Seehofer intends to present his master plan migration. The asylum dispute between CDU and CSU had ignited at original version. Seehofer had foreseen that asylum seekers already registered elsewhere in EU should be sent back at German border. Merkel rejected this. In course of conflict, Seehofer had threatened to resign – dispute had almost shattered union's community. It was only last week that union agreed on an asylum compromise.

Meanwhile, Seehofer considers dispute with Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) to be done. "We look forward," said federal interior minister of picture on Sunday. "I always say: The windshield is bigger than rear-view mirror. This is what we both always thought of. " If agreements of grand coalition and proposals from its plan for German asylum policy were implemented, fewer asylum seekers would come to Germany permanently, he said.

However, federal President of Greens, Robert Habeck, does not believe in an end to dispute between Merkel and Seehofer. He was sure he would break out again, he said in ARD summer interview. "This so-called compromise does not solve any of problems that Seehofer has opened up," said green politician. It is not a matter of questions, but a question of power. This has still not been clarified. The Union must clarify which party it is and this clarification will Habecks "still many, many pains. So it's guaranteed to go on. "
