40% of New Refugees without Chance for Asylum

Some 40 per cent of the refugees arriving to Bavaria and Germany over the so-called Balkan route have little or no chance that they will be granted asylum within the EU and Germany, according to an article at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung citing a representative of the EU Commission.

According to a report, only some 39 per cent of the asylum-seekers in January came from Syria. In September last year 69 per cent of the refugees came from the country. Almost 50 per cent of the newly arriving refugees and migrants now come from Iraq and Afghanistan, and most of the people coming from those countries have little chance of being granted asylum.

The proportion of people arriving from the North African Maghreb states is also on the rise. People arriving from there are mostly economic migrants. The German government is now planning to declare Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco as safe countries of origin in order to speed up the rejection of asylum applications from citizens of these countries and send them back.
