Germany is not so dreamy anymore
Rapporteur-Farbod Dehghani: Germany is one of the most attractive destinations for immigrates of the world. Each year about hundreds of people enter there to achieve better life . but now a days it seems that we are facing with a reverse thing: more and more people are leaving Germany.
Merkel’s unsuccessful policies in immigration, make many of them to return from Germany. They are now facing that there is no enough facilities and job for them.
Most of them come from the West Balkans: as many asylum seekers and migrants no longer return in 2016, according to a media report.
Last year, 1.1 million migrants—mainly Arabs, Afghans and Africans—came to Germany to escape war and hardship, many of them risking their lives to make the dangerous journey. Authorities have scrambled to accommodate the influx and Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing growing public discontent, especially after the alleged role of foreign-born men in the mass assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
In 2015, a total of 37,220 people left Germany voluntarily through such programs, compared with 13,574 in 2014. While most of those returnees were people from Balkan countries, who face little chance of being granted asylum here, the number of Iraqis who left quadrupled in the same period to 724, according to Germany’s immigration office.(1)
In 2016, around 55,000 asylum seekers and migrants were to leave Germany voluntarily towards their homelands. It would be the highest level in 16 years. This is reported by the "Süddeutsche Zeitung", citing an estimate of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bamf). The Federal Republic promotes the voluntary return financially (read an overview, who can get as much money).
Most returnees, as in the year 2015, are from the West Balkans; They were without a serious chance of a permanent residency in Germany and could have avoided the voluntary return of their deportation.
Alone 15,000 people had returned to Albania by November, according to the "SZ" report. This is by far the largest group this year. Serbia, Iraq, and Kosovo were to be found in the following places, each with a good 5000 returnees. The number of returnees rose sharply this year, particularly to Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq. According to Afghanistan, more than 3200 volunteers were returning voluntarily by November - a good ten times more than in the previous year. The number of deportations, estimated to be 25,000 this year, was not even half that of voluntary return trips.
If, for example, a family of five decides to return to Germany before the return of the negative asylum decision, the "Süddeutscher Zeitung" can receive about 4200 euros - in addition to basic funding. The included travel expenses, a travel baggage allowance as well as a simple start-up aid, which can be between 1000 and 3000 Euro depending on the country and age of the children. The Federal Government wants to further encourage voluntary return and to launch a new program next year.(2)
