In meantime, leading CSU politicians once again defended party's restrictive stance on asylum policy. Federal Minister of Transportation Andreas Scheuer said that many citizens help with integration, but many are also overwhelmed. "Those entitled to protection receive all our attention and our humanity and integration performance," said Scheuer. However, if someone does not have a right of protection or has become offended as an asylum seeker, consequences should be drawn.
Regional group chief Dobrindt said: "I think it is right that endangered and violent criminals are brought back to ir home countries." It is "an expression of rule of law" when State protects its citizens from criminals. Looking at deportation of Sami a. To Tunisia, Dobrindt said: "I am not criticizing that Sami a. was deported. On contrary, I criticize that he was allowed to stay for so long. " The suspected bodyguard of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had been deported on 13 July. The administrative Court of Gelsenkirchen had reprimanded action as "grossly unlawful" and asked to retrieve Sami a. In contrast, city of Bochum defends itself.
Prime Minister Söder and Bavaria's transport minister Ilse Aigner called for Unity at a party congress of Upper Bavarian CSU in Irschenberg. Debt allocations and quarrels would have to end, demanded Aigner. Söder tried to differentiate himself from AfD: "We are center," he said, indirectly responding to Union of Middle initiative, founded by CSU politician Stephan Bloch, which supports liberal course of Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU).
Federal Minister of Economic Affairs Peter Altmaier (CDU) said in German radio that refugee policy is an important issue, "Neverless, debate we have had in recent weeks has been superfluous as a goiter." However, it led to fact that all participants felt now that one could "not win a flower pot anywhere", says Altmaier.Updated Date: 23 July 2018, 12:02
