February 15, 2018 - Munich, Bavaria, Germany - Herbert Kickl of Austria’s extreme-right co-ruling party the FPÖ arrived in Munich Thursday morning to meet with Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann at the Staatsministerium. Among the topics discussed were optimized border controls, intensive police cooperation across the Bavarian-Austrian border, and toll-free travel for German service vehicles in Austria (Einsatzfahrzeuge). The press conference coincides with an announcement by Bavarian Minister-President Söder of a new border police (Grenzpolizei) in Bavaria that will be based in Passau consisting of 500 officers to start. Controversially, while the border police is a federal task, the unit will be de facto under Bavarian state control via the CSU’s Horst Seehofer, who is a member of the federal cabinet...When asked if Herrmann is working with the extreme-right FPOe party, he countered by stating “I don’t work with the FPOe, rather with the Austrian Interior Minister”..Kickl is noted for a January 2018 statement that alluded to the Nazi-era, stating that he wanted refugees and asylum seekers “to be concentrated in one place”. His statement then created controversy and drew condemnations during Chancellor Kurz’s visit to France to meet Macron. (Credit Image: © Sachelle Babbar via ZUMA Wire)
