Merkel Germany Coalition Limps on as Immigration Control Compromise Struck
German interior minister 'offers to resign' over migrants
04 July, 2018, 13:06
Chancellor Angela Merkel and her rebellious Bavarian allies searched Monday for a way to resolve a standoff over migration after Germany's interior minister offered to resign, but a compromise looked elusive in the dispute that has rocked her government.
However, after a night of high drama, Seehofer later said he would hold last-ditch talks with Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) "in hopes of reaching an understanding".
Her turnaround was prompted by her Interior Minister, Horst Seehofer, who has demanded that migrants at the border must have papers before advancing past the German welcome mat.
Both sides hammered out "a truly good compromise ... after a tough struggle and hard days", Merkel said, describing the holding and processing centres.
Sources said Seehofer rejected Merkel's assessment that the EU-wide measures would "have the same effect" as his demand to turn away at the border asylum-seekers already registered in other European Union nations.
Polls indicate the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD), would be among the biggest winners, an unpalatable outcome for Merkel and all other parties.
Following marathon talks at the Brussels summer summit, European leaders eventually reached a compromise on migration in the early hours of Friday.
Hans-Peter Friedrich, a member of the CSU leadership, said that Merkel's rejections of compromises submitted by Seehofer suggested she was happy to see him go.
However, according to das Bild, Seehofer called the meeting on Saturday evening an "ineffective conversation".
Horst Seehofer, leader of the CSU, a key party in Merkel's coalition, has become increasingly hostile to her position on immigration.

What did Mrs Merkel negotiate with the EU?
Their two "sister parties" agreed to set up transit centers for asylum seekers on the Austrian border to prevent those registered in other countries from entering Germany.
Under the new policy, which is still pending approval of the Social Democrats, another party in Merkel's delicate coalition, Germany would create so-called "transit centers" along the border.
Ms. Merkel had also been unyielding in her insistence to not go it alone, but to have at least some bilateral or multilateral agreements in place with European Union partners.
The Austrian government reacted furiously to a political deal by Angela Merkel's government to hold migrants at transit centres on its border with Germany, and said it was prepared to impose new controls on its own borders with Italy and Slovenia. SPD leader Andrea Nahles said there's still "a lot that needs to be discussed". "I have not studied it in detail but at first glance - and I have asked the legal services to look at it - it seems to me to be in line with the law", Juncker told a news conference in Strasbourg.
