Merkel’s Refugee Policy Breaks the Law, Bavarian Minister Says

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision not to apply European Union rules in her handling of the region’s refugee crisis violates German laws, said a Bavarian state minister whose party is allied with Merkel nationally.
“The German federal government is clearly overstepping its constitutional competencies at present,” Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said Wednesday on ZDF public television. “It is not in the power of the federal government to just override and no longer apply existing European and German law.”
The EU agreement requires refugees to be registered in the countries where they apply for asylum and allows bloc members to send back those that have been registered elsewhere. Germany can no longer take the 9,000-10,000 asylum seekers entering the country per day in violation of those rules, Herrmann said. "
