The influx of immigrants must not result in the existing population suffering social disadvantages. Where there is competition for social and societal resources, immigration will always remain an issue of conflict. Sufficient child education services must therefore be created, and the housing market and job creation must be promoted in particular. In addition, social entitlements and longer residence rights of immigrants should be linked to work and a minimum length of stay.
But integration must also be further promoted. We need a framework in which immigrants can learn the German language quickly. Language courses must be compulsory and made available in sufficient numbers. Only in this way will access to the social environment and the labour market be made possible. In addition, the support and accompanying programmes for integration must be further expanded and improved. Integration is a task for society as a whole that can only succeed with the efforts of all those involved.
