Hard to believe: In order to speed up asylum procedures, Federal Interior Minister Nancy Feser (SPD) wants to ease the rules for vetting asylum seekers. Apparently the government is not interested in who is coming to the country.
Asylum processes often take more than 18 months. Interior Minister Feser now wants to change this. In the future, asylum seekers will be examined less closely and the process will be sped up – this is revealed by an email to the refugee authority BAMF, which is available to “Build”. The email lists “temporary measures” which, however, should remain in place “until further notice.”
According to this, fewer passports, ID cards and documents will be checked in future. If the passport is missing, the smartphone should not be checked to determine nationality or obtain other information about origin. Short information about the asylum seeker should also be researched in the Schengen Information System.
Apart from this, statistics should no longer be made on the level of education. Furthermore, language and dialect identification (including major Arabic dialects), which could provide information about the precise origin of many asylum seekers, will no longer be used – it will only be used in individual cases.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of the Interior told “Bild”: “BAMF, in coordination with BMI, is implementing measures to accelerate asylum procedures.” He stressed that despite the weakened regulations, safety “remains a high priority”.
According to estimates, around 300,000 asylum seekers are expected to arrive in Germany this year – 267,384 initial applications for asylum had already been submitted by October.
Speedy asylum procedures should certainly be welcomed, but certainly not at the expense of security checks. Apparently the government is not interested in who comes into the country. Even more so for civilians, internal security is already at risk and locals are increasingly becoming fair game. It is well known that asylum seekers often make their ID cards disappear in order to avoid deportation. Indeed, it should not be possible to apply for asylum without papers. Weak regulations are likely to encourage illegal mass migration and make deportation more difficult. As is well known, border control changes nothing, because authorities are not allowed to send migrants back. It has been shown time and again that the government does not want to stop mass migration.
