Germany’s security minister is openly challenging Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open door immigration policy.

As Sky News reports, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer is planning to introduce a resolution on Monday that will demand the extradition of all “refugees” who have already been processed by other European Union (EU) countries.

The resolution, expected to be passed, will effectively end Merkel’s immigration policy that has allowed anyone to come to Germany if they are entering from another EU country.

Seehofer is prepared to wait two weeks for Merkel to alter her immigration policy in conjunction with other EU nations or he says he will implement the policy himself as the German minister responsible for national security.

Seehofer is not a member of Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party. Merkel remains chancellor in a tenuous minority government and had to appoint members of Seehofer’s Christian Social Union party to key government posts like the interior ministry in order to stay in power.

Citing German newspaper Bild Zeitung, Sky News said Merkel is reportedly in talks with other members of the EU to find a continental immigration policy that will reduce the number of migrants entering countries like France, Spain, Greece, Italy and Austria. (RELATED: Conservative Suggests Trudeau Government Is Hiding Number of Illegals Deported)

But Seehofer has had enough and reportedly wants Germany to act unilaterally, saying he “can no longer work” with Merkel.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, secretary general of Merkel’s CDU Party, said the resolution could have wide repercussions on Germany. “It could weaken our negotiating position and potentially impact other areas such as the euro.”
