Why rejected asylum seekers are seldom deported

In no other industrialized nation have so many people applied for asylum in the past year than in Germany. Around half of the applications are rejected, but that seldom has consequences for the applicant.

In this digital age, it’s not just millions of banal emails that are sent around the world, but also important messages. Information that can spark a massive reaction. Like the fact that in Germany, the risk of being deported is pretty small despite a rejected asylum application. Refugees know this, and it’s one of the reasons why Germany remains their preferred destination.

    • My TV ain’t that big.

        Didn’t I ask you to get a better TV a year ago?
        Fine, I’ll bring my own!

        What kind of story would I have to give to the CIS to explain my only possessions being a flat screen TV and six cases of Maker’s Mark Bourbon?
        Obviously I’m fleeing the Taliban controlled areas of Southren California.

    “Refugees know this…”

    Merkel had to know it too, which makes her all the more evil. She knew that what she had done could never truly be undone.

    If any country tries mass deportations there will be riots in the streets in response.

    Politicians know that we can take down any politician as Stephen Harper recently found out.

      Hey Achmed, long time no see!
      Go ahead and riot.
      It will only justify your own removal, so have at it big boy!

      So, why did the INS turn down your immigration visa?

    “…Following verdicts from the European Court for Human Rights, taking people into custody prior to deportation is no longer allowed…”

    That is literally insane.
