Saxony's Interior Minister believes that the population's sense of security has declined. In the Bundestag, he makes demands of the traffic light government.

Interior Minister Armin Schuster (CDU) has called for a tough change of course by the German government in terms of migration policy. We have a veritable problem with a misguided asylum and migration policy, said Schuster during a debate in the Bundestag on Wednesday. The debate focused on acts of violence committed by people who came to Germany as asylum seekers. The subjective feeling of security among the population had fallen dramatically as a result of such acts.

"Integration is not a one-way street," said Schuster. We want to see migrants who also want to integrate. The integration practiced in Germany is good, but the system must not be overburdened. "The sense of security is in danger, the ability to integrate is exhausted, the Dublin distribution mechanism is basically inadequate, is dead, the threat of terrorism is growing. In two words: enough is enough". The federal states urgently need a radical stop to asylum admissions and a deportation offensive for multiple and serious offenders. The federal government needs a migration master plan.

In concrete terms, Schuster called for more intensive border controls with the possibility of turning back migrants and the consistent deportation of criminals: "We now need a signal to the population: this constitutional state has teeth. And anyone who commits a crime here will be expelled." At the same time, he offered Saxony as a model project for the so-called federal departure centers. The admission program for people from Afghanistan must be ended, as must family reunification for people with subsidiary protection.
