Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer wants to react to the case of Ibrahim Miri, who has illegally entered Germany, by extending border controls. The "Bild" newspaper said Seehofer: "The Federal Police should perform flexible controls at all German borders."
The newspaper reports, citing a plan Seehofers, the Federal Police had been instructed from this Wednesday to more controls at the borders to track down people who want to travel despite entry restrictions in the Federal Republic.
Accordingly, on rural roads at the borders with checkpoints is to be expected, also should be extended the Schleierfahndung. Anyone who wants to cross the border despite an existing entry ban will be rejected immediately. In the future it should also be arrested, who demands asylum despite entry ban.
"The important thing is that the trial be closed in custody," Seehofer said. According to Bild, this means that people who apply for asylum despite entry bans should no longer be allowed to go to jail in Germany or be deported.
Miri returned to deportation and filed for asylum
Ibrahim Miri, the head of the Lebanese Miri clan, had reportedly illegally entered Lebanon from Germany to Germany with the help of smugglers. There, Miri applied for asylum. Only a few weeks before he had been deported from Germany.
Seehofer called the case in the "Bild" newspaper a "litmus test for the defensive democracy". If the rule of law does not prevail, the population loses "confidence in our entire asylum system".
