Schwerin (dpa / mv) – At the end of its two-day closed conference, the AfD parliamentary group renewed its criticism of the federal and state asylum policy. “Before we allow ourselves the luxury of solving the problems in the world, we have to take better care of our country and our citizens – just as is normal and natural in other countries,” said parliamentary group leader Nikolaus Kramer in a press release on Thursday Schwerin widespread statement.

The influx of migrants into the social systems must be prevented, it said. “The possibility of a municipal freeze on admissions in the Refugee Admissions Act can only be the first step,” explained Kramer. For weeks there have been protests in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, for example against the construction of container villages to accommodate several hundred refugees. Districts and municipalities see themselves increasingly overwhelmed and call for help from the state.

Kramer again criticized the current energy policy, the prioritization of wind energy was wrong. After the closed conference, he announced that the AfD wanted to introduce many new ideas and concepts to parliament this year. He did not give any examples.
