Merkle Calls For ‘National Push’ To Get Rid Of Rejected Migrants
At Daily Caller by Jacob Bojesson,
German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants a “national push” to deport as many migrant rejected asylum seekers as possible from the country.
Germany struggled to get rid of asylum rejects during years when the migrant influx was much smaller. Close to a million arrivals in 2015 alone has created a huge backlog of deportations that authorities can’t execute.
“We need a national push to deport those who are rejected,” Merkel said at a news conference Saturday. “That’s indisputable and we’re working hard on that at the moment.”
The chancellor promised to increase the staff at immigration authorities to tackle the problem.
