The debate about a so-called lane change of refused and tolerated asylum seekers is becoming more and more fragmented. It is time to make clear rules. The SPD apparently wants to do that.
B erlin (dpa) – According to the party and parliamentary group leader Andrea Nahles, the SPD is determined to find a way to the German labor market for rejected or tolerated asylum seekers.
"We will enforce the lane change" Said Nahles in the summer interview of the "Berlin skip" ZDF broadcast on Sunday, at the moment the wrong people are being deported. "We want well-integrated people to stay here."
The so-called "lane change" actually means that asylum seekers who are refused and only tolerated, but who are well integrated and able to work under an immigration law, are allowed to stay in Germany, and there is always a complaint from the business community that asylum seekers are educated and well-integrated, and then deported, because of the shortage of skilled workers, this is counter-productive.
However, the employers' organization Gesamtmetall fears that the discussion about the prospects for a job for asylum seekers who have been tolerated the Immigration Act for special needs as a whole jeopardizing. "If we were to permit a rejected asylum seeker to stay with us through the back door of the immigration law would create the impression that it does not matter whether an asylum seeker is rejected or not, "said Chief Executive Oliver Zander of the Augsburger. General »(Saturday).
He criticized the initiative of the Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther (CDU). He suggested that asylum seekers without the right of residence have the opportunity to change from asylum to immigration if they are well integrated and qualified, speak German and have a job. In the CSU and predominantly also the CDU, he encounters rejection, because it is feared that such a regulation offers an extra incentive to escape.
SPD, Greens and FDP ask for such a rule. In the meantime, the EPD has proposed a deadline for avoiding escape incentives. For people who are already tolerated in Germany, a relaxation should apply, not for future asylum seekers.
The integration commissioner of the federal government, Christian Democrat Annette Widmann-Mauz, is before the closing date. "No one would understand that we recruit skilled workers abroad and send people who are already working or working in the country back home and are integrated," she told the ZDF
Minister of Labor Hubertus Heil showed up at ZDF to reach a settlement with the Union. The cornerstones of the Ministry of the Interior for an immigration law stated that the potential of the refugees should be used. "We will discuss the design together." Heil was especially relevant for students. So far there was a deviation that allows them to stay for a total of five years: three years of training and two years of follow-up work.
The Ministry of Interior of Horst Seehofer (CSU) confirmed the refusal to change from asylum to immigration legislation. State Secretary Stephan Mayer (CSU), however, was open to changes in the 3 + 2 rule: "Given the shortage of skilled workers in the healthcare sector, further relaxation is worth considering," he told the "Passauer Neue Presse" (Saturday).
