As is apparent from a position paper of the federal-state working group that reports from the ARD studio, the law is primarily aimed at unused commercial properties. It is not excluded that even condos and homes covered by the proposed law.
About 100,000 migrants entered Germany in August alone. The country is said to expect a total of 800,000 in 2015.
