Half of Afghan refugees in Germany may be deported
KABUL (Pajhwok): Berlin may deport half of the 79,449 Afghans who have applied for asylum in Germany, a German media outlet reports.
Around 40,000 Afghans, including the refugees who are willing to return voluntarily, could be sent back to their homeland as part of a bilateral arrangement.
Bild magazine reported the migrants whose asylum applications have been rejected three times on the trot would also be repatriated.
Chancellor Angela Merkel has been under fire for her 'open door' policy for refugees after one million people sought asylum in the country last year.
