In fact, Minister Seehofer is refusing a "lane change" for well-integrated refugees. Now he gives a compromise dispute. The GroKo advises in the evening about an immigration law for professionals.
Before the coalition leaders discuss the planned immigration law for skilled workers, the Union continues to refuse to allow "well-integrated" refugees "to change lanes" in the event of a rejected asylum application. The Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer said that the "lane change" was not planned in the cornerstones he and the Federal Minister of Labor, Hubert Heil had worked out. However, there is room for negotiation with tolerated asylum seekers.
This group will be decided in the evening, says Seehofer. "But that is not a lane change," he said.
SPD for "lane change" of well-integrated refugees
The leaders of the Grand Coalition want to come together for a discussion in the chancellery, which is mainly about dealing with the diesel problem, but also about the planned immigration legislation for foreign skilled workers.
The SPD demands that well-integrated refugees with a job, even with a negative asylum decision, have the opportunity to stay in Germany. The affected persons would thus be given a "changing of lanes" from asylum to immigration legislation. The Union rejects this because it is afraid of negative stimuli.
Stay under certain conditions
A compromise might now be that rejected asylum seekers who are tolerated in Germany are given the chance to stay under certain conditions. Often they can not return to their home country anyway.
Agree that you are yourself, "that we do not deport the wrong", said Heil, the dpa news agency. Seehofer said: "If it can not be removed for compelling reasons, for reasons that are not in the person of the asylum seeker, then people say that they are working before they sit down here." This has been his position for a long, long time. But that is not a lane change. "Whoever is rejected and obliged to leave must also leave."
Nevertheless, asylum seekers can already work under certain conditions.
Lischka for "pragmatic solution"
The SPD domestic politician Burkhard Lischka spoke in the "Bild" newspaper for a "sober and pragmatic solution" for asylum seekers who are tolerated, "who already have a permanent work or training relationship, their livelihood can deny itself and be guilty of nothing". The entrepreneurs in his constituency would "show him a bird when we send these workers home".
The debate on a "lane change" was launched. "" The premier of Daniel Schleën-Holstein, Daniel Günther. At the beginning of August, he proposed that certain well-integrated and labor market-oriented asylum seekers be allowed to move to a regular immigration process.
Economy insists on immigration legislation
Faced with a shortage of skilled workers in many industries, the German economy is driving the big coalition for an immigration law for skilled workers. A "lane change" is viewed critically. "We employers do not expect marginal discussions about so-called" lane changes "or closing dates", warned the chief executive of the employers' organization BDA, Steffen Kampeter. "The inclusion of people who need humanitarian reasons may not be mixed with the required skilled labor migration where necessary. "
Craftsman President Hans Peter Wollseifer considers the regulations currently in place in immigration legislation to be inadequate. He called on the federal government in the interview with the newspaper to quickly present important points for a Fachkräftezuwanderungsgesetz and to start concrete legislative work.
Economic pnosis significantly reduced
Such a solution was also supported by the migration expert from the research institute of the federal employment office, Herbert Brücker. "It would be logical to have a closing date with a permanent residence status for all who have come to Germany, for example at the end of December 2017, who have been working for at least two years and thus finance their own livelihood," Brücker told the newspapers of the editorial network Germany. "There are no incentives for extra migration to Germany."
At the end of last week, leading economic researchers had significantly reduced their economic cycle predictions in their autumn report – from 2.2 to 1.7 percent. One of the reasons they mentioned was that "companies seem to have increasing problems finding sufficient manpower to produce."
