The CDU parliamentary group in the Saxon state parliament has demanded temporary entry controls in view of the increasing number of refugees at the German-Polish border.

"Action must be taken and therefore temporary border controls should be carried out in Germany until the completion of a border fence on the Polish external border with Belarus," said the domestic politician Rico Anton on Monday in Dresden:

Dresden / Görlitz - "We cannot just sit and watch as more and more illegal refugees come into the country."

CDU parliamentary group leader Christian Hartmann sees Berlin and Brussels as having an obligation: “The federal government and the European Union are now responsible.

We must not allow refugees to become the political leverage of the Belarusian rulers. ”Everything must be done to ensure that the EU's external borders are better protected and that this“ attempt at blackmail ”fails on the EU.

Federal police officers picked up more than 130 unauthorized people at the Saxon-Polish border last weekend alone.

A total of 135 people were taken into custody from Friday to Sunday, the police said.

All of them came to Germany via Belarus and Poland.
