And border controls are probably imminent. Germany (and other Schengen countries) do have the right to border controls under in emergency circumstances.
Even as the acceptance rate will be about 1/3 to about 1/2 of total, it doesn´t mean all the rest will be "sent back", forced deportation were about 10000 last year with about 200000 new asylum applications, but even if it happened, it would be a record huge amount remaining. Balkan immigrants will be indeed mostly rejected, but given the massive numbers, the government is working on new legislations to allow them legal immigration to look for work in Germany, at least that´s what Merkel said a few weeks ago.
Border controls are, otherwise, not into serios consideration so far, but of course if this grows out of control, and countries like Italy, France and other EU eastern countries keep refusing their duty to help refugees, nothing´s guaranteed, but seriously, I can´t imagine how Germany could turn itself into a big walled castle, control all their borders to 9 countries and let hundreds of thousands camping around its territory
