But his recent attack on the German government at least makes political sense.

Over the weekend Seehofer had signalled he would hold off on implementing the measure until after an European Union summit on migration and asylum policy that is scheduled for the end of the month.

The two leaders of Europe's biggest economies will seek to thrash out a compromise between Macron's bold vision for sweeping European Union change and Germany's stance that is more cautious, especially when it comes to finance. And then: "We don't want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!".

In a sign of the frayed nerves, Germany's political and media world lurched into a brief panic Friday as several media outlets fell for a hoax tweet claiming Seehofer's CSU was quitting the coalition.

"It is essential to propose a new European project on immigration, on economic issues, on financial issues to consolidate Europe in a world where you have the United States on one side, China on the other and we are trapped in the middle".

Though arrival numbers have always been decreasing and are now low, migration has shot back to the top of Europe's political agenda also because German Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition partner issued an ultimatum for an EU-wide deal on migration. Migration is "a European challenge that requires a European answer", Merkel said in her weekly podcast released Saturday.

"This is not about winning time or anything like that but rather that in July, if there is no result at European level, we must implement this - that is a question for the functioning of our constitutional state", he added.

The German commentariat wrote themselves into a Wagnerian Götterdämmerung frenzy.

"I heard that part but I haven't seen it, but I'd be happy to check into it and circle back", Sanders replied, before calling on another reporter.

Failure to reach a deal that can be presented as a breakthrough at the European level could precipitate a full-blown crisis in Germany that might topple Merkel after nearly 13 years as chancellor.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday a euro zone reform package agreed with French President Emmanuel Macron would be supported by all parties in her ruling coalition. The AfD that swept into Parliament past year on a wave of anti-migrant sentiment is staging a march Sunday through the heart of Berlin to protest against the government. But that is precisely the reason they are not going to pick up the tab if Germany tightens its border regime. Merkel opposes unilateral action, arguing that it would weaken the European Union.

"Crime in Germany is up 10% plus (officials do not want to report these crimes) since migrants were accepted", he tweeted Wednesday morning. -Mexican border, a policy aimed at deterring illegal immigration. The prime suspect is a refugee who fled back to Iraq in the wake of her disappearance.

She was criticised for letting in about one million in 2015. Whether this will be enough to head off the frustration that has spread far beyond the populist fringe is another matter.
