well his senior press officer oxfam he says european governments need to share responsibility for the care of refugees children have different rights to adults under the law no child migrant he wants to claim asylum in front should ever be pushed back to italy there is a procedure for sending children back to italy if they do not wish to claim asylum but that involves certain protections like a twenty four hour grace period or like having a guardian appointed and these procedures the simply not being followed instead from the accounts we hear repeatedly children are being sent back almost automatically to to italy and being kept in the cells abused and and also in some cases increasingly having their paperwork altered by french border police to make it appear that they're older we think it's important the french government immediately puts an end to these practices that at the french border which are
3:35 am
illegal and immoral but we also think it's really important that european governments come up with a better solution than the one we've got for sharing responsibility for refugees and migrants and when e.u. leaders meet in brussels on the twenty eighth of june it's really important that this is top of their agenda too to agree a better way forward the german chancellor is battling to save her government as europe continues to be divided on immigration part of the anglo mogul's ruling coalition has threatened to pull out if she sacks or interior minister emergency talks are being held as the two fail to agree on germany's open door policy donna cane reports. these are difficult days for angela merkel a coalition government is at a crossroads brought there by a route over immigration with her interior minister horst zero offer he's one of her strongest allies on the center right with his very and based christian social union c.s.u. the sister party to her c d's he wants her to change course she does not
