Germany: Merkel defends CDU-CSU migration deal in Bundestag speech

German Chancellor Angela Merkel defended the CDU-CSU migration deal in Berlin Wednesday, during a speech in the German Bundestag over the annual federal budget. Speaking only a day after the dispute with Merkel's coalition partner CSU and interior minister Horst Seehofer has been solved, Merkel stated, «There needs to be more order regarding all forms of migration, so people can see that law... Еще and order are being implemented. This is our mission and our concern.» AfD's Alice Weidel heavily criticised Merkel's policy, saying, «You are splitting Germany, Europe. To do that you are splitting and dismantling your sketchy coalition and eventually your own party, too.» She concluded by calling upon Merkel to resign. SPD's Andrea Nahles who welcomed the compromise between CDU and CSU, but had yet to respond to the controversial issue of transit zones, rejecting 'closed centres' for refugees during her speech.
