Germany Deportation Center Costing Nearly $3,000,000 Deports Only 84 Migrants A Year

Job security.

The regional government in Hamburg relocated their deportation detention centre last year and so far the new location has cost 2.4 million euros, despite only facilitating the deportation of fewer than a hundred people.

The new facility, which places failed asylum seekers and illegal migrants in detention to await their deportation, opened in October 2016, located at the Hamburg international airport, and has so far led to the deportation of a mere 84 migrants, Hamburger Morgenpost reports.

The report comes after a formal request into the matter by Cansu Özdemir, a local member of the Left Party, who said that the costs associated with the deportation centre were “enormously high”. BreitBart
