Trump Says Crime In Germany Is Up, It's Actually Down

Germany's interior minister insisted that his party has no intention of bringing down Chancellor Angela Merkel and her government, amid uncertainty Sunday over chances of a solution to a bitter standoff over migration.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday accepted an offer from Bavaria's Christian Social Union (CSU) to delay until July the ban it wants on admitting migrants who have previously been registered in other EU states, German news agency DPA reported.

Mrs Merkel's hopes are to see European Union member states agree to a new bloc-wide asylum reform or at least a bilateral solution with some European Union countries.

However, "the European project is at risk", and "we have a particular responsibility", she said.

Merkel's "open door" policy is increasingly under fire from other European leaders.

Merkel herself has come a long way since the fall of 2015 when she said that there was no legal limit to the number of people who have a right to asylum and told Germans that "we will manage" the challenge of integrating migrants, many of them from war-torn countries like Syria and Afghanistan.

On Sunday, a government spokesman said Merkel was seeking talks with some European Union members on migrant policy before the leaders summit at the end of the month although denied a report in Bild that she was trying to set up a special summit.

Once again the two sister parties, Merkel's CDU and the Bavarian CSU, have been fighting over immigration.

Google Maps just evicted Uber bookings
Google's corporate parent, Alphabet, has a $1bn stake in Lyft, which it bought in late 2017 via its CapitalG investment arm. Since Lyft's integration still works inside Google Maps, I guess it was Uber that chose to remove this cool integration.

Macron previous year outlined his vision for a stronger, more united Europe as a forceful reply to the far-right and isolationist National Front he defeated at the polls.

On July 1, after the completion of a two-day European Union summit, Merkel will meet with the CDU executive to discuss next steps, the chancellor said Monday.

That, in turn, could lead to the collapse of Merkel's government, which also includes the center-left Social Democrats, who joined only reluctantly and are still struggling to recover from their poor showing in the national election last September.

Instead, Merkel wants to find a common European solution at the EU summit in Brussels.

The migration crisis will also be high on the agenda when the new Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez meets for the first time with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Saturday.

The prospects of Merkel reaching a deal on migration with Conte on Monday would appear slim.

As a result of the influx, even some within Merkel's own political party, as well as political allies, have called for turning away migrants at the country's borders. The Geneva Refugee Convention, to which Germany is a signatory, guarantees every person seeking protection against human-rights violations the right to an asylum procedure, regardless of whether they have identification papers or not.
