The Lower Austrian Asylum Council Gottfried Waldhäusl (FPÖ) finds clear words in the conversation between krone.tv and Jana Pasching about the disputes about the asylum tents in the federal states. It’s not about who gets the quota, it’s about finally solving the problem. More and more people would come to Austria, according to Waldhäusel there were more than 4,000 a week. “That’s why a border guard is needed to really get the problem under control.” Waldhäusl is sure: “Many asylum seekers come to us who have committed crimes in their own country.” Waldhäusl warns that there will be problems and abuse here again.
There will be no tents in Lower Austria, because: “I will not pay for the incompetence of the federal government.” According to Waldhäusl, asylum seekers should be prevented from crossing the border. “If they are being picked up anyway, if I were Minister of the Interior I would put them on a bus and take them back to the safe third country.”
“Dams are tight in Lower Austria”
“If I were the head of operations, I would say: close the dam, otherwise the village will drown,” says Waldhäusl. The way the federal government operates in the field of asylum is responsible for Austria’s drowning. “The SPÖ lets everyone in. The Greens are now watching people sit in tents in the winter months and the ÖVP is looking the other way.” According to Waldhäusl, politics has clearly failed here: “I did my homework in Lower Austria. That’s why the dams in Lower Austria are tight.”
The limit of what Austria can tolerate in terms of asylum seekers has long been crossed, warns Waldhäusl: “You have to say openly and honestly that it is no longer possible, it is enough.”
“Now that we know that there are more and more asylum seekers who are not adhering to our laws, we will continue to need neighborhoods like Drasenhofen in the future.” If we have 100,000 asylum seekers, a large proportion will have left their homeland, because Waldhäusl is sure that he will be followed there by the police. “A lot of asylum seekers come to us who have committed crimes in their own country.” Waldhäusl warns that there will be problems and abuses again.
