Even after the fire in the Moria refugee camp, the coalition is divided on the possible admission of refugees.

Juso chairman and SPD vice-president Kevin Kühnert called for the refugees to be evacuated on the island of Lesbos and for them to be admitted without waiting for a European solution. “The question of the distribution of refugees in the EU has not been resolved for years. That urgently needs to be clarified, but it won't be done in three days, ”Kühnert told the“ Spiegel ”.

"In view of the acute humanitarian catastrophe, we do not need any new working groups, we have to act immediately," said the SPD politician. "Germany can not wait for a European solution now, but should go ahead." Union parliamentary group Vice Thorsten Frei, however, reiterated his rejection of admission without European unification. “I am very critical of going it alone nationally when it comes to accepting migrants. It would suddenly wane interest in reforming European asylum policy. Going it alone could also easily send the signal that the way to Germany is free, ”said Frei to“ Spiegel ”.
