Beg Zeqiri: Mr. Strobl, why do I have to go?
Thomas Strobl: I’ll put it very clearly. We have to concentrate on those who are facing threats to life and limb. That’s not the case with you. People coming from Syria, for example, are fleeing torture, rape and death – they fear for their lives. Anyone like that, we let them into this country. But it doesn’t make sense to integrate asylum-seekers from the Western Balkans into Germany. We know from practice that the better they are integrated, the harder it is to repatriate back to their countries of origin.
