According to “Die Welt”, the Hamburg office for foreigners called for 300 people to leave Germany in 2018. In another 312 cases, the office decreed that those people had lost the right to freedom of movement and therefore, their right to remain in Germany. In total, 77 lost the right to remain due to prison sentences, and 21 were deported from Hamburg to their countries of origin – made up of mainly homeless people from Poland and Romania.
In October 2018, a 43-year-old Polish woman died due to hypothermia
According to German law, people living on the streets longer than three months may be subject to control and sanctions. In October 2018, a 43-year-old Polish woman died due to hypothermia.
The office warrants its decision by claiming that those people are not employed or currently being educated. At the same time, Germany is accepting many migrants from Africa and the Middle East, most of who live off social benefits. For some reason, they do not qualify for deportation.
