Austria: Up to 90 percent of failed asylum seekers ‘not deported’ as countries of origin refuse repatriation

Up to 90 percent of failed asylum seekers are not being deported from Austria because their countries of origin will not agree to readmit them, according to Defence Minister Hans Peter Doskozil (SPÖ).

He said the problem was particularly acute with migrants from African countries.

“At the moment, it doesn’t make much difference whether someone gets a negative or positive decision on their asylum application because we are unable to implement any decision in between 80 and 90 percent of cases,” Doskozil said. He added that the issue is pressing as it’s estimated that the population of Africa will “double by 2050”, and people will continue to try and flee poverty and persecution.

Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka (ÖVP) agrees with him: “We will have to live with this migration issue… maybe for years, or decades.”

    In 20 years we will be the majority throughout Europe and the Shari’a will be the law.

    • I suspect you’re right.

        Nothing is more depressing than the thought of that happening. We are so f*cking stupid. Why does the West want to sacrifice what we have for them?

      And Lambchop, too?

      since our treasonous govts will not protect us we will end up having to fight a guerrilla war then

      we will not lay down like the left

      once law and order breaks down all rules are off

    They were motivated to come on their own. They can be motivated to leave on their own.

      by hook or by crook

    Good going Austria. You have either hobbled yourself permanently or committed national suicide.

  • Dana Garcia

    Austria could try cutting off visas from the misbehaving nations. If all European countries joined together and ended visas of all kinds then there might be some response from dirtbag African nations.

    • Cut off aid and asylum for their tin-pot dictators as well as freezing those Swiss bank accounts they enjoy.

      • Dana Garcia

        Yep, lotta ways the dirtbags can be put on the sh!t list.

  • Throw ’em in the pond.
    If they sink, they can stay.
    If they don’t sink, leave ’em in the pond.

    • WalterBannon

      If they don’t sink, throw more in on top of them

    And nobody saw that coming? It is standard routine. It also shows our total weakness and submission by accepting it. You really don’t need permission from their countries of origin to deport them; you just do it.

  • k1962

    Force them to take them back by withholding aid.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      If by with holding aid you mean bombing their government buildings for non-compliance.

      • k1962

        Well, not exactly. Just fly them out, bus them out. Get them out or else the laws mean nothing. Enforce the laws and if you have to threaten other countries into taking their citizens back, do it.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Stopping aid programs is a rather limp approach to repatriation.

          • k1962

            Do nothing is a limp and costly approach. If they can’t deport, they won’t bomb.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Should have bombed the boats.

          • k1962

            I hear you 😉

      air drop them

  • Repatriate them into the open sea.

  • WalterBannon

    any country that refuses even one repatriation of a citizen should be put on an international blacklist wherein they are banned by every nation for all immigration applications and refugee claims by made their citizens, permanently
