The personnel details go back to the coalition agreement, which states on the subject of refugee policy: "We want to conclude new practical and partnership-based agreements with important countries of origin, taking into account human rights standards." This involves, for example, economic cooperation, qualification measures for the German labor market and "cooperation on the return of rejected asylum seekers". The federal government "appoints a special representative" to design the migration agreement.
"We need a general switch in migration policy: with procedures in which entry requirements are checked in advance and people come to us according to clear criteria," Faeser told the "Welt am Sonntag". "In this way, we can also pull the plug on the smugglers who illegally bring people into the EU in life-threatening ways."
Stamp left his ministerial post after the FDP was defeated in the North Rhine-Westphalian state elections in May. He has also announced that he will not run again as chairman at the FDP state party conference planned for early 2023.
SPD faction deputy Dirk Wiese told the "Bild" newspaper about the designated special representative that it was "good that this important position is now being filled in the Ministry of the Interior". Stamp will, among other things, "make countries of origin unwilling to cooperate clearly responsible for repatriations".
The Federal Government already has a commissioner for migration, refugees and integration: Minister of State Reem Alabali-Radovan (SPD) works in the Federal Chancellery.
