A former minister under Angela Merkel has said that the EU could eventually close its external borders in as little as ‘five years’.

Speaking about migration on ThePioneer podcast, former German health minister Jens Spahn demanded that ‘anyone who is rescued in the Mediterranean must be returned to the North African coast.’

The deputy chairman of the conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) went on to say that the closure of EU borders ‘will happen’.

He said: ‘The border will be closed sooner or later. Whether in five or 15 years, I cannot tell you. But it will happen.’

Immigration has been an urgent political crisis in Germany after millions of Middle Eastern refugees migrated there in 2015.

Mr Spahn said: ‘The key question is not repatriation, but limiting irregular migration.

‘If we talk about illegal migration, logically the number should be zero, because it’s illegal.’

He has, however, received backlash for suggesting violence is used to stop illegal migrants.

Speaking on the podcast, he said that if necessary the EU must ‘use physical violence to stop irregular migration movements’.

Clara Anne Buerger, the Left wing MP, said: ‘Jens Spahn now wants gangs of thugs to beat back people seeking protection at the borders … This is clearly illegal and potentially criminal.’
