When the Germans said they would take 800,000 migrants this year were they telling lies?

I am confused by the behaviour of the German government.

They have already said they want 800,000 Syrian migrants this year.

They have also said they intend to take 500,000 migrants per year for an unspecified time into the future.

Now we learn that the German government is bullying central European states over the distribution of a mere 120,000 migrants.

When the Germans said they would take 800,000 migrants this year were they telling lies?

If they were not telling lies why do they not simply take the 120,000 migrants as a first instalment of the 800,000 migrants they say will be welcome this year?  No need to bother anyone else.  Take them into Germany and keep them in Germany.

However, if the migrants (together with their descendants and dependants, since the 800,000 they take will soon double and even triple as family members claim their human right to a family reunion) are to be imposed on other EU nations then an important constitutional issue is at stake.  Artificially ramping up the population of the EU must imply an eventual allocation of citizenship to the majority of the migrants (since history demonstrates most will not return), with a consequent impact on the electorates of the EU states the Germans are bullying.  Therefore the imposition on the four bullied nations of central and eastern European must be unconstitutional.

And while we are discussing constitutional issues, has the German government gained the permission of the German electorate before they give their country away?
