Angela Merkel faces outright rebellion within her own party over refugee crisis

Two of the German chancellor's ministers have supported changes to asylum rules for Syrians, urging the cessation of automatically recognising Syrians

Angela Merkel is facing an outright rebellion within her own party after two of her most senior ministers directly challenged her “open-door” refugee policy.

The German chancellor’s office was forced to intervene at the weekend to block an unauthorised attempt by Thomas de Maiziere, the interior minister, to change the asylum rules for Syrian refugees.

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.

In August, Germany decided to waive for Syrian refugees the European Union's Dublin rules, which oblige migrants to request asylum in the first EU country they arrive in.

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