Many migrants have been re-settled in the minister’s state in the south of the country.

Mr Söder said integration of those from different cultural backgrounds was “bound to fail”.
He added: “Even with the best intentions in the world, it will not work to integrate successfully that many people with a completely different cultural background.
“Germans do not want a multicultural society.
“Anyone who wants to live here must adjust themselves to our values and not vice-versa.”
The CSU minister added the asylum seekers pose a security threat because of few details about their background.

He also said many parts of war-torn countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan have been recognised as safe.
The 49-year-old added: “The civil war in Syria will also end sometime soon.
“According to legislation, people have to return home when the reason for fleeing is no longer valid.”
Bavarian prime minister Horst Seehofer has also blasted Angela Merkel’s government.
