Germany Calls for Limits on EU Influx

The number of refugees and migrants expected to arrive in Germany by the end of 2015 has soared to 1.5 million, according to Bild newspaper, citing a government report.
This is while German politicians say the EU must take immediate measures to limit numbers.
Forecast, one of Germany’s top newspapers, reported that officials have revised their estimates on the number of asylum seekers and migrants to enter the country by the end of the year, RT reported.
“Migratory pressures will increase further. We now expect seven to ten thousand illegal border crossings every day in the fourth quarter,” Bild cited the report as saying.
“This high number of asylum seekers runs the risk of becoming an extreme burden for the states and municipalities.”
The number of asylum seekers is hitting an all-time record, according to Minister-President of Bavaria Horst Seehofer who earlier this week acknowledged almost 170,000 registered arrivals in the region in September alone.
According to Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, the daily influx has recently soared to 10,000.
Germany’s abilities to accept and handle refugees and migrants are not infinite and the country’s capacity is now strained to the limit, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in interview with ZDF on Sunday.
“Europe must be ready to accept asylum seekers, but must be able to help everyone it receives,” Schaeuble said. “That is why the influx of refugees coming to Europe must be limited.”
