But Wolfgang Schäuble, the influential finance minister, has since come out in support of Mr de Maiziere’s initiative, alongside a host of senior party figures.



Somebody had better do something to get this crazy witch in line!

Germany tones down welcoming message for Syrian refugees



BERLIN (Reuters) - Syrian refugees who have made it to Germany may be sent on to other European countries, the German Interior Ministry said on Tuesday, an apparent reversal of an earlier policy that suggested all asylum seekers from Syria would be allowed to stay.

"the Interior Ministry said a record 181,000 migrants had arrived in Germany in October. The government expects 800,0000 to one million overall. "
