Over the last months, asylum seekers have continued calling to confirm the reality of media reports on Germany`s plans to favor asylum especially the many who are living in years of limbo in Germany. There is no doubt that many Asylum seekers and many other members of the German society are optimistic about propaganda of any new government at this very beginning.
From a critical point of view, a very practical change is the removal of proof of German knowledge as a visa application criteria for persons intending to join a family member in Germany. Based on the German status quo, we are not convinced about the plans to make integration easier for asylum seekers (access to integration courses and vocational language).
On the issue off opportunities available to asylum seekers, “same old story”. Its just a deceptive reduction in the period that makes you eligible to apply for the so-called residence opportunity (Chancen-Aufenthaltsrecht).
While political and charity organizations continue to criticize some aspects of the propaganda draft and in some cases negotiating compromises, a larger mass of migrant community are once again reminded of the need to be visible and take position in the struggle against repeated beautified repression of asylum seekers and migrants in Germany.
As a community of those who are directly affected by these racist discriminating policies, any attempt to just remain silent, waiting, hoping and praying for manner to fall from this German democratic heaven will mean further disaster for many migrants and refugees especially those who are already trapped in the German limbo situation.
Questions that we need to ask ourselves are;
What does it actually mean to live with Duldung.
How can one survive the Duldung Criminalization without Passport (living with Work ban and other restrictions, deportation) and consider these points as major requirement for eligibility.
Please take note of this statement in any of the media reporting on the issue;
Criminals and persons who have demonstrably made false statements about their identity will not be given this opportunity. Furthermore, tolerated persons who have committed criminal offence are to be deported more consistently.
* Not cooperating in obtaining identity document to facilitate your deportation is a criminal offence.
