According to a report, the head of the Federal Police Union, Decatur, has called for temporary border controls with Poland. Otherwise, there is a risk of a “collapse” at the borders due to the high number of illegal registrations.
The Federal Police Union has spoken out in favor of temporary border restrictions on the German-Polish border as the number of so-called refugees on the Belarus route increases. One reason for this is the high number of unauthorized posts.
“The number of fears has been erupting for months,” Haiko Decathus, head of the Federal Police Union, warned in a letter to Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU). Only by introducing temporary border controls can the federal government prevent a “collapse” of borders as it did in 2015, with “built” quotes from the letter.
Decots: Restrictions do not solve problems
“SARS-Cov-2 infections, especially those of immigrants (in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, etc.), pose a significant health risk to our colleagues. As usual in Germany and Europe health regulations are certainly not adhered to in the “smuggling process”.
Decots also acknowledges in the letter that the “overall problem” cannot be solved by temporary border controls. The truth is that Belarusian “dictator Alexander Lukashenko is reacting to state-sponsored kidnappings to EU sanctions.” Europe should not engage in such “games,” Decathlon warned.
The European Union suspects Lukashenko’s retaliation
Lukashenko announced at the end of May that Minsk would no longer bar immigrants from continuing to travel to the EU – in response to the tightening of Western sanctions against his country. Since then, there have been increasing reports of attempts to cross the EU’s outer border with Belarus and the German-Polish border. Since August, thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa have tried to cross the Polish border from Belarus.
The European Union (EU) expects Lukashenko to retaliate against Brussels. Belarusian authorities are believed to be bringing immigrants into the country and smuggling them across the borders of Eastern EU countries. In addition to Poland, Lithuania and Latvia also report an increase in the number of immigrants on their borders with Belarus.
