    The Bild-Zeitung reported – citing the Federal Police – that a monthly average of 100 people “against which a national or rule-wide entry ban existed” have been intercepted since January 2017 at German border controls.

    According to the current legal situation, these persons can not be turned away at the border and can even petition for protection again in Germany. “The entry and residence ban is no obstacle to the filing of a protection application,” it says of the Federal Police.

    According to the report, it does not cover the amount of migrants who re-enter the country following a re-entry ban due to an ongoing Dublin procedure.

    The rejection of rejected asylum seekers and those who have already been registered under the Dublin rules in another EU country is the subject of a dispute between two German parties governing in a union, CDU and the CSU, They have not been able to agree on a common asylum policy.

    Horst Seehofer, the interior minister and CSU leader has submitted a plan that provides, among other things, for the refusal of such illegal immigrants at the border.

    In fact, Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing the biggest crisis of her chancellorship because her conservative Bavarian allies in the union are threatening to abandon her over asylum policy.

    Bavaria State Premier Markus Söder, says the dispute is a “credibility showdown”.

    The immigration issue is threatening to splinter Merkel’s bloc. A brief false panic was even set off on Friday afternoon, by a tweet from an account called “hr Tagesgeschehen,” masquerading as a branch of local public broadcaster Hessischer Rundfunk, suggesting that a split was inevitable.

    Jasper von Altenbockum of the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung, says Germany’s coalition government could be about to collapse, just three months after it came to power.

    In a bid to appeal to anti-immigration AfD voters, Seehofer has consistently opposed Merkel on the refugee issue. Beginning in late 2015, as Bavarian state premier he called for the number of refugees to be capped at 200 000instead of allowing millions into the country.

    On Friday, he told daily newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung that the CDU’s decision that year to open Germany’s borders had “split Europe”. As early as September 2015, he riled against Merkel’s decision to allow migrants in Hungary to enter Germany.

    “It was a mistake that will follow us for a long time,” Seehofer told Der Spiegel magazine. “I don’t see any chance to get the cork back in the bottle.”

    One might think that migrants fleeing from misery, persecution and hardship to another country should be grateful for their reception and support once they arrive in Germant. They have a roof over their heads, they are no longer hungry and they are safe.

    At the Asylum Home in Straubing in Bavaria, however, some residents have a somewhat strange way of expressing their gratitude towards Germany. Just in time for the start of the Soccer World Cup, they hung a German flag out of the window – but added a heartfelt detail in large letters on the red middle part: “Fuck”.

    The management of the accommodation centre has responded in the meantime. “The flag was removed by the home director,” said the spokeswoman for the Government of Lower Bavaria, Sarah Pancur. “This will not happen again.”
