Migration to Germany: 30,000 asylum seekers due for deportation went missing


Alarming news regarding migration to Germany. About 30,000 failed asylum seekers due for deportation are unaccounted for within Germany’s refugee processing system.

The authorities think that some may have left for other European countries but many are believed to live under the radar, protected by family or friends in an environment that police and other agencies find difficult to penetrate.

According to the government 54,437 people were liable to be deported after their asylum applications failed last year.

Yet according to the Federal Statistical office only 23,617 of these were ejected — and what happened to the remaining 30,820 people is unknown.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation, and will publish migration to Germany news, once they are publicly available.
