    Default German Migration Drama Could Spell The End For Angela Merkel

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s grip on power is hanging by a thread as the immigration crisis stirring political upheaval across Europe threatens to split apart her already fragile coalition government.

    Interior Minister Horst Seehofer and his Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) are trying to upend Merkel’s open-door policy towards migrants and refugees by proposing to shut Germany’s borders. The CSU and Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU), which jointly hold power over the government, are required to seek compromise on how to move forward.

    Following a crisis meeting on Thursday, Seehofer’s CSU announced that it planned to stick with its “migration master plan,” which lays out strict immigration and deportation rules. Merkel’s CDU said it agrees with most of the points in the plan except for one: whether to reject migrants who try to enter Germany after they’ve already registered for asylum in another European Union country, as doing so would represent a breach in European Union law.
