European Parliament President Martin Schulz said the German Greens are backing a bill that would kill the European Union’s common asylum policy.
The bill, dubbed the “Greenspan-Ems” or “green-light bill,” would also eliminate a common asylum rule that applies to people fleeing persecution, violence and war.
“I think it’s absolutely necessary to end the common asylum rules,” Schulz told German broadcaster ARD.
“It’s a very good idea, but it needs a long time.”
Schulz said he had heard from a number of other European leaders who are also in favour of the bill.
“In a meeting we had on Monday we agreed that it’s the right thing to do.
But I’m not convinced that it can be done in the next few weeks,” he said.”
We have to do it, but we have to make sure that it is not too late.”
Schultz said the Greens would support the bill if the bill is approved by the Senate on Tuesday, adding that it was possible that it could pass on its own.
“There is no need to be so impatient, because it’s not a matter of if we can do it.
It’s a matter if we have enough time,” he told ARD, adding: “If the Greenspan- Ems pass, it’s a no-brainer.”
Schulzes plan for an EU solutionThe German Greens plan to support the “Greenpan-ems” legislation comes after the Greens called for a parliamentary vote on Monday in favour.
Schulz told ARG the proposal was “not without merit” but warned against a rush to pass it before the European Parliament meets next month.
“If we do it on the same day that the German Parliament meets, we could make a mistake,” he added.
“What we need to avoid is the mistake of rushing the green-light to the European Commission, because we want to make it clear to all those countries that have not agreed yet that we will not wait for them.”
Schloespan said the Greenpan- ems bill was a first step to “establish a new European asylum policy” that would provide a common platform for people fleeing conflict and persecution in Europe.
“This is a big step, and it’s something that we hope that others will follow, because this is a very important step,” he was quoted as saying by Germany’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.
“For a long period of time, we have not been able to have a clear EU asylum policy, and now we will be able to do that, and that will be a good thing,” Schloespen said.
Schloses plans to tackle ‘giant refugee crisis’The German politician said he was “very pleased” with the response from the EU’s 27 member states to the refugee crisis.
“Our country has been a pioneer for this,” Schulzes spokesman said.
“This is not a moment to celebrate, it is a moment for serious reflection.”
Scholess plans to establish an EU border agency in response to the influx of people fleeing war and persecution and tackle the “giant” refugee crisis that has claimed more than one million lives since 2015.
He said he wanted to “put the final touches” on the proposal in March, after the EU Council meets in Brussels, but only after a comprehensive EU border policy is agreed.
