Not Green enough? German Socialists complain about too few migrants

The SPD in the Baden-Württemberg state parliament has accused the Greens of accepting too few Moria migrants. The reason for this is the announcement by the Ministry of the Interior in Stuttgart that only 85 immigrants from the burned down Greek migrant camp will be accommodated.

    “It shows once again the double standards of the Greens,” the SPD member of the state parliament Rainer Hinderer told the dpa news agency. “In Sunday speeches, they generously praise the welcoming culture, but in terms of practical government responsibility, the topic is not important enough to mess with hardliner and CDU interior minister Thomas Strobl,” the spokesman for labour market integration complained.

    The Greens have been ruling Baden-Württemberg since 2016 together with the CDU. According to the CDU-led Ministry of the Interior, “from the group of 1 553 recognized persons entitled to protection, a total of 291 people had entered Germany by December 10, 2020”.  Some 35 of them have arrived in the southwest of the country.

    The remaining immigrants are to be brought to Germany in nine flights from January 28 to the end of March. However, changes may occur due to the Corona pandemic or other variables. Ironically, under-representing the number of migrants in the mainstream media have helped both the CDU in hiding the numbers from their voters as well as the Greens in hyping the need for more migrants.

    “It was a sign of impoverishment that the only thing that could be achieved with the CDU in the federal government was that only 1 553 refugees were accepted from the Greek camps,” said Hinderer. “The green-led state government is now going one step further.” According to the distribution plan, Baden-Württemberg should have accepted more than 200 people because it is “common sense”.

    But Germany did not only accept 1 500 Moria migrants. There are also 243 “children in need of treatment and their core families”. According to the federal government, this is a further 1 250 people, which means that Germany is bringing in almost 3 000 of the asylum seekers, mainly from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, into the country.

    Not all EU countries want to take in Moria migrants. Austria’s federal government, for example, had refused and stressed that they would “not follow the German path”.
