Greens in Germany want more low-skilled and unskilled migrants and a federal European Union

The Greens around Chancellor candidate Baerbock are calling for a new immigration law to bring more foreign workers to Germany. Business and science agree with the Greens: the labor market and social system urgently need immigration.

The Greens have big plans with their candidate for Chancellor Annalena Baerbock. They want to stop climate change, introduce a funded pension, legalize cannabis and make Europe a federal state. But the Greens also want to further open Germany's borders to migrants, enforce an “inviting immigration policy” for “low-skilled and unskilled workers” and offer them naturalization after five years. The outcry in some media was great. Focus Online has taken a close look at the green proposals for labor migration.

The Greens' call for an immigration law with comparatively low-threshold access to the German labor market is not new. As early as April 2017, the green parliamentary group submitted a draft law:
  • Qualified foreigners should therefore be given the opportunity to come to Germany without a specific job offer via a “talent card” and a point system.
  • An immigration commission is to determine the annual labor requirement and thus propose the number of annual talent cards to the Bundestag, similar to many Anglo-Saxon states: "A talent card is given to those who collect enough points for the selection based on qualifications, professional experience, German language skills, previous residence in Germany and old-age security." It says in the green proposal.
  • While looking for a qualified job, immigrants should be allowed to work here in order to be able to support themselves.
  • They should be allowed to look for a job for a year. They would not be entitled to social support during this time.
The Greens call this supply-side immigration. "This is how we meet the needs of medium-sized and small companies that cannot operate their own recruiting offices abroad," explained the green authors Katrin Göring-Eckardt and Volker Beck at the time.
