Bavarian leader calls for end to "welcome culture" for refugees
MUNICH, Nov 21 - A prominent ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel stepped up his criticism of her refugee policy on Saturday, demanding an end to the "Willkommenskultur" that has encouraged record numbers of migrants to seek asylum in Germany.

A day after criticising Merkel -- as she stood uncomfortably beside him on stage -- for refusing to put a cap on the number of refugees entering Germany, Bavarian leader Horst Seehofer called for "a culture of reason, not a culture of welcome."

"No one can be forced to shoulder more than they can carry," Seehofer said at a congress of his Christian Social Union (CSU) in Munich, where he was later re-elected as party chairman.

The CSU is the sister party of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and is a member of her coalition government in Berlin, but Seehofer has emerged as her most high-profile domestic critic in recent months.

Thousands of migrants are entering Germany every day, the vast majority flowing into Bavaria over the Austrian border, and roughly a million are expected to arrive this year alone.

Merkel agreed in September to suspend EU asylum rules and allow thousands of migrants camped out in precarious conditions in Hungary through to Germany.

Scenes of German volunteers applauding refugees and offering them food as they descended from trains in Munich station sparked the feel-good term "Willkommenskultur" ("welcome culture").

But the mood has since shifted, with critics saying Germany's welcome has only encouraged more to risk the harrowing journey from war-torn countries such as Syria and Iraq.

Merkel, who marks her 10-year anniversary in office on Sunday, has rebuffed calls from the CSU and members of her own party to impose a formal cap on the number of refugees Germany will accept, saying it would be impossible to enforce.

The scene on the stage in Munich on Friday underscored how politically vulnerable she has become in recent months as the tide of refugees continues, straining the resources of local communities. A poll last week showed that 60 percent of Germans are unhappy with Merkel's refugee policies.

Re: Bavarian leader calls for end to "welcome culture" for refugees
I really can't see any benefit from this. Not only will the countries resources be depleted but also the economy in general. How will businesses survive let alone new ones start up. This has definitely been planned out not only in Germany but the other countries. It is economic suicide and in the long run the elites won't be able to live the life style they are living now. There has to be more to this story than what we are seeing.
