‘I’m a Daesh Terrorist’: Tricks Migrants Use to Avoid Deportation From Germany

On Sunday, Der Spiegel, citing an internal police document, reported that Germany couldn’t deport more than half of illegal migrants in the country.

Only 27,000 migrants out of 57,000 left Germany in 2018. As German Interior Ministry spokesman Steve Alter confirmed to Sputnik, in most cases travel documents are missing or the deportees evade the authorities and therefore cannot be handed over to the Federal Police for repatriation. The foreigners are required to obtain a passport or a replacement passport themselves, but often don’t do so.
