Migration: For the first time, more than 10,000 first-time asylum applications – domestic policy

According to Bild, the number of first-time asylum seekers in June is more than 10,000 a month for the first time in a year.

The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees will release the exact numbers for June in the coming days.

Mathias Middleberg (56, CDU), domestic policy spokesman for the CDU / CSU Parliamentary Committee, told Bildt of the biggest improvement over the previous month: “We will be tearing back the 10,000 limit for early asylum applications in June. This is a significant increase of 20 percent compared to the previous May. “

Comp comparison: last February over 10,000 first-time asylum applications were exceeded, i.e. directly before the corona epidemic (10,140 applications).


“There are many indications that we will receive more asylum applications this year than by 2020 (102,581 initial applications). .

Tun The majority of people from Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria are seeking asylum in Germany. But: asylum seekers from these countries have only a small chance of getting recognition.

In the long run, the number of first-time asylum seekers is currently high. Ten years ago (2010) there were 41,332 initial applications Per year Less than half last year (2020).

“At the same time, a number of decisions have been made at the level of the High Courts, which means that those who are eligible for protection from Greece can seek asylum with us again,” Middelberg told Bildt.

This fact will further increase applications in Germany, and, according to the interior expert, will increase the “migration pressure on Germany” as “further migration” through Europe becomes possible.

More: “Given this situation, it is very difficult to set up additional concessions to go to Germany. But that’s what the Greens call it in their election manifesto, ”Middleburg said.

Because, according to their election site, the Greens want to repeal the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act. According to Middleberg: “Therefore, anyone applying for asylum in Germany is entitled to comprehensive social and health benefits from day one, just like fellow citizens who have paid for their social security fund for many years here – even if it is expected to be an asylum. “

So far, in European asylum policy (Regulation (EU) No. 604/2013, Dublin III), in practice the first entry country is responsible for carrying out asylum procedures in most cases.
