Master Plan Migration: More deportation places, more control, more rule of law

Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has presented his master plan migration to the CSU leadership. Some of his ideas on asylum policy are likely to encounter opposition from the SPD.

Master Plan Migration: More deportation places, more control, more rule of law

For weeks, so-called master Plan migration of Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) was only known to a small group of people. On Sunday afternoon, German Minister of Interior presented him to CSU board. According to plan, Seehofer wants to expand detention places. "In order to meet current plight of detention places", "separation of Deporters and or detainees" should be suspended temporarily, it is said in paper from which news agency DPA cites.

The Länder should be encouraged to "develop adequate detention places". It should also be examined wher "detention facilities" of Confederation could be set up at airports in particular for collective deportations.

Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) had said that she agrees with 62.5 of 63 points contained. However, many of tightening plans planned by Seehofer are not likely to fall to SPD coalition partner. For example, Minister of Interior would like to have current possibilities for remedies examined in asylum procedure. In addition, it is considering involvement of protection seekers in court costs. Procedures should be accelerated by means of legislative changes.

More money for police

The paper is preceded by a preamble in which Seehofer is outlining guidelines for his asylum policy. "Successful integration can only be achieved by limiting immigration," it says. "The request for humanitarian protection and perpetration of criminal offences is in principle mutually excluded." He speaks of a "balance of helpfulness and real possibilities of our country".

For Ministry of Interior, head of Department requires additional funds in millions: for training and equipping of police in migrant countries of origin and transit, he calls for six million euros, as well as Sondertatbestand to 2020 each half a million Euro per year. In addition, Seehofer wants to gain more access to funds from SPD-led Foreign Office. For budget of CSU Development Minister Gerd Müller re should be more money than previously planned.

Intersections with EU decisions

In part, ideas of Seehofer overlap with decisions of EU summit last week. The minister writes of "safe places" in North Africa, among or things, where refugees could be brought back to Mediterranean. The EU's role in paper is: "The less common European asylum system can afford, more national measures and ir effectiveness gain in importance." Discussions with or EU countries on withdrawal of asylum seekers should be intensified. Orwise, in particular in event of a renewed illegal return to Germany, "domestic measures" should be taken. This is a sticking point in asylum dispute between Seehofer and Merkel; The Chancellor rejects national single-aisles.

In paper, Seehofer also outlined details of anchor centers he planned, but which were already widely known. The entire asylum procedure is to be carried out re and various local authorities are working more closely toger. The obligation to stay is 18 months, for families six months. Most federal states do not want to set up anchor centres.

The master plan migration lists many tightening for protection seekers. For example, legally convicted offenders are threatened with revocation of ir protection in Germany, as well as people who travel back home, even though y are threatened re according to ir own data. "In se cases asylum application is considered to be withdrawn in case of home stays during current asylum procedure", it says. The paper also says: "Anyone who abuses his right of residence to commit crimes must leave our country." The legal employer sanctions for expulsion should be checked.

According to plans, transition from asylum seekers to social assistance would not take place after 15 months, but only after 36. Those who do not participate as prescribed in integration courses should be afraid of stricter sanctions. Those who do not submit identification papers will have bad prospects in future. The concept mentions "linking of state permits and services to existence of valid travel documents".
