Having learned nothing from her past mistakes, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel called upon the EU to double its refugee intake. “Merkel willing to resettle more refugees,” reports Germany’s most-read newspaper, Die Welt. “The EU can cope with twice as many migrants,” writes Austria’s leading daily, Kronen Zeitung, quoting Merkel.
Merkel talked of relocating 40,000 refugees initially throughout the EU member states. These 40,000 ‘refugees’ will be in addition to the estimated 200,000 migrants that Merkel has agreed to accept annually from Turkey. According to German newspaper reports published in May, Germany’s Merkel and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte had struck a ‘secret deal’ with the Erdogan Regime to fly in migrants directly from Turkey and settle them across the EU–without bothering to consult other European countries.
The Merkel government also wants to spread around the couple of million migrants that have illegally entered Europe since September 2015, when Merkel, in an erratic move, decided to disband the EU-wide migrant controls, also known as the Dublin Regulations.
German public broadcaster ARD reports:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel supports the proposal to accept more refugees in the EU than previously planned. She is willing to double the number from 20,000 to 40,000. “The European Union with its 500 million inhabitants can cope with it,” Merkel said after her meeting with UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi and Director General of the International Organization for Migration, William Lacy Swing.
