The EU has announced a new plan to deport illegal migrants

Those who do not need international protection should return to their country of origin, European Commissioner Ylva Johansson said.

The European Commission wants to tackle the growing number of illegal migrants in the EU with a new deportation strategy, announced on Tuesday 24 January.

“Those who do not need international protection should return to their country of origin,” EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson said in Brussels.

More than 300,000 illegal migrants will arrive in the EU in 2022, he said. Most of them are not eligible for asylum.

The EU has been unsuccessfully trying to increase the level of repatriation for several years. However, the share of expelled and repatriated migrants is decreasing: if in 2019 of the total number of people who should leave the EU, 29% did so, then in 2021 – only 21%.

EU countries must work together on the problem

The new deportation strategy should “serve as a deterrent to help reduce unsafe and illegal migration,” the European Commission said in a statement.

The strategy assumes closer cooperation between EU member states, accelerated data exchange and decision-making processes.

In addition, the European Commission expects to increase the number of returns of migrants to those countries with which the EU has established cooperation, and where there are “no political obstacles” for this.

Germany leads the EU in the number of asylum applications

In terms of the number of applications for asylum in EU countries in 2022, Germany took the lead. At the same time, the number of applications increased by 57% compared to 2021.

Most of the petitioners are citizens of Syria, Afghanistan, Turkey, Iraq and Georgia.

Germany is followed by France, Spain, Austria and Italy. Least of all EU countries last year they sought asylum in Latvia, Slovakia and Hungary.
