Merkel demands release of Germans unduly imprisoned in Turkey

RTS1CXH5

Although the plan has successfully reduced irregular migration flows and came as a significant relief for Merkel in domestic politics, the European Union failed to timely deliver the promised funds.

She added that Germany would not support the widening of a customs union agreement with Turkey and the EU "so long as the situation remains as it is".

Germany and Egypt have agreed on a plan to reduce the flow of refugees and asylum seekers to Europe, as part of Berlin's wider push to curb the stream of illegal and unchecked immigration to the European country, refugees' ideal destination. That compares with a 39-38 percent edge for Merkel in January, when Schulz's emergence as her main challenger gave the SPD a temporary poll boost.

She says: "It can not be that Europe only shows solidarity when it helps some".

President Trump Pardons Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Liberals were furious that President Trump pardoned a law enforcement officer for trying to enforce immigration laws. Arpaio was described by a DOJ expert as overseeing the worst pattern of racial profiling in USA history.

Mrs Merkel says she also is interested in fostering a "migration partnership" with Niger to inhibit the smuggling of migrants through African deserts on the way to Libya.

French President Emmanuel Macron hosted a summit of the EU's "big four" continental powers, including Germany, to discuss the migrant crisis with leaders from Libya, Chad, and Niger on Monday. The arrival in Germany of a million refugees over the last two years, mainly from Syria and Iraq, opened deep rifts in Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative party and is becoming a campaign theme ahead of a September 24 national election. The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party has gained considerable strength in the a year ago and could get 10% of the vote in the election on September 24.

But the 63-year-chancellor said she would not be kept away from areas where animosity towards her runs high.

Independent journalism is a basic pillar of democracy that can "never be questioned, even when it is uncomfortable", she had said.

Interior secretary won't recommend eliminating national monuments
It appeared on Trump's review list. "But my tribe has no trust for (President) Donald Trump ", the 52-year-old artist told Xinhua. The majority of the public comments were in favor of maintaining the existing monuments, according to National Geographic .

"Some people can't do anything else but scream and shout - but we're not going to let them lead us astray".

Merkel said it was unfair that Greece and Italy were left on their own carrying the full burden of the refugee crisis "simply because of their geography".

"Someone who detains law-abiding visitors to their country on the basis of outlandish, indeed absurd, accusations and throws them into prison has left European values behind", Gabriel said in July, while calling for Steudtner's release.

Florida inmate Mark Asay to be executed by experimental injection
