Germany is speeding up the deportation process for refugees that overstay in the country as local newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten reports.

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere is trying to deal with the refugee flow in the country citing a bill on the matter.

"It will become easier to enforce existing obligations to leave the country," the newspaper writes.

According to the law indicated above, refugees can not overstay in the country after their permissions expire. The law says that the time refugees can overstay today is six months and it will be reduced to three.

At the same time, the cash benefits the refugees currently hold will be replaced by no cash benefits.

In future, once the deadline for people for a voluntary leave has passed, the date of deportation will not be announced to reduce the risk of people going into hiding.

According to the newspaper, the new reforms of the law have been agreed between ministries and the federal government with the cabinet due to agree to them this month.

At  the same time, tensions in Hungary rose on Wednesday when police fired tear gas and water cannon when hundreds of refugees tried to cross the Hungarian-Serbian border.
