The German SPD party wants to call retired military personnel back to duty in order to deal with the immigration crisis more effectively, Focus Online reported.

The increasing influx of refugees to Germany requires an increase in the armed forces. The German SPD party therefore suggested that military personnel and civil servants in early retirement go back to work to deal with the newcomers, Focus Online wrote.

From the legal point of view, it is possible, but there are currently debates whether the “mobilization” would take place on a voluntary or mandatory basis, the article said.

The SPD prefers the second option, assuming that it could be attractive for those interested in additional earnings. Moreover, the party also proposed to involve “the translators who were active during the operations in Afghanistan” to work in refugee reception areas.
