Trump Suspects Crime Rising In Germany, Questions Official Data

A reversal of her 2015 open-door migrant policy would be a huge blow to Merkel's authority

The President added: "We don't want to have happen what is happening with immigration in Europe".

"Germany also has a head of government", he said of Merkel, saying it was she who was "responsible before her people and her parliament".

She has vehemently opposed his calls for Germany to unilaterally turn back people previously registered as asylum-seekers in other European Union countries.

"Trump is trying to sway the domestic political debate in favor of right-wing conservatives and populist elements in Germany", Rolf Mützenich, foreign affairs expert for Merkel's coalition partner, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), told DW. We must always do more to fight criminiality.

Merkel, the EU's longest-serving leader, welcomed Monday's compromise in a dispute that has threatened to unravel her new coalition, and said her Christian Democrat (CDU) party would decide how to proceed after the two-week deadline elapsed.

On migration, Merkel's insistence on finding common European solutions to reducing migrant numbers and other issues has met stiff resistance in her own conservative bloc, leading to a showdown over the last week with her interior minister who has insisted some categories of migrants should be turned away at Germany's borders.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said Monday that more than 5,600 migrants entering Europe through Greece have reached Bosnia and Herzegovina so far this year, compared with 754 in all of 2017.

"Asylum-seekers who have been registered in other European Union member states should be turned away at Germany's border", he insisted, despite Merkel's opposition to such a unilateral step.

"In an unhinged world, France and Germany should be grateful for the ties which still bind them".

Italian military ships to escort ‘Aquarius’ to Spanish port of Valencia
Sea-Watch said it requested help from the coastguard in Malta to send boats to aid the rescue mission but Malta refused . Doctors Without Borders (MSF), which is operating the Aquarius alongside SOS Mediterranne, urged a rethink.

She further denied the separations are a matter of policy.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel delivers her speech at a meeting in preparation for a climate change conference that takes place later this year in Poland's city Katowice, in Berlin, Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

Arriving for talks with Merkel on Monday evening, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte stressed that his country can not be left alone to deal with the influx.

Seibert declined to elaborate ahead of the meeting, which will be preceded by statements from the leaders.

The almost six months it took Ms. Merkel to form a government after last September's election was the longest ever in the postwar history of Germany and an indication of her weakened position.

Meanwhile, this negative picture for wider European stock funds is even more pronounced, as they absorb investors' fears over the impact of the migrant crisis on top of the existing concerns over the situation in Italy and the recent scandal involving the former Spanish Prime Minister, which we have covered in previous articles.

Tripoli already runs migrant camps in Libya where the European Union pays the United Nations migration and refugee agencies to help resettle people to Europe legally or deport them to other African countries. Many Roma people are Italian citizens who have been in the country for generations, while others come from Eastern Europe.

But Mrs Merkel opposed to this move, claiming Germany will follow the EU's immigration laws.

The poor showing also set off an internal power struggle: Seehofer salvaged his job as party leader but gave up the Bavarian governor's job to younger rival Markus Soeder.
