BERLIN. The number of deportations has also decreased in the past year. By the end of November 2019, the authorities had rejected 20,587 foreigners, Die Welt reported on Sunday, citing federal police surveys. Since May, more than 2,000 people have been deported in no month.

In 2018, 23,617 illegal immigrants were returned. The trend has been declining since 2016. The authorities deported 25,375 people that year and 23,966 the year after . At the same time, the number of foreigners who are required to leave the country remains at around a quarter of a million.

At the end of November, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees counted 248,861 people who should actually be leaving Germany. This was five percent more than in the previous year. Just over 200,000 of them are tolerated because they cannot be deported temporarily.

Deported asylum seekers return to Germany
According to the Federal Ministry of the Interior, about half of all deportations failed between 2015 and 2018. In addition, by September 30, 2019, almost 30,000 asylum seekers who had been deported since 2012 or who voluntarily left the country were living again in Germany.
