The Turkish government has stared mass deportations of illegal Afghan invaders back home, even if they don’t have any identification papers.
According to a report in the Jordan-based Al Bawaba newspaper, the deportations are taking place in terms of an agreement between the Afghan and Turkish governments to deal with Afghans who have been living in Turkey without legal documents for years.
The deal was reached on Sunday during the visit of Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim to Kabul.
Both governments will form a joint team to identify how many such illegal Afghans live in Turkey, Javed Faisal, a spokesman for the chief executive office, said.
He said the Afghans ended up in Turkey while either trying to “migrate” to Europe or were deported from Europe after their “refugee” status was rejected by host countries over the past few years.
More than 200 such migrants were deported to Kabul from Turkey on Sunday, just as the Turkish leader was holding talks with Afghan authorities, an official at the Afghan Ministry of Repatriation of Refugees, said.
An estimated 150,000 Afghans are currently in Turkey, said another government official.
The deportation procedure had been completed for 591 Afghans in the eastern province of Erzurum, claimed the Turkish Interior Ministry. Charter flights to Kabul would be arranged on Saturday and Sunday to send them back, it added.
“Following the completion of deportation procedures for illegal migrants in our other provinces, deportations will speed up and continue in the coming days,” the ministry said in a statement.
- The lack of papers is always used by nonwhite invaders as an excuse in Europe as to why they cannot be deported.
Earlier, the Hurriyet Daily News in Turkey reported that the number of Afghans in Turkey had risen 400 percent in just one year alone.
According to the figures, there were 27,000 Afghans in the first quarter of 2018, an increase from 6,000 in the first quarter of 2017.
