In total there were 5613 from January to March deportations, citing a response of the Federal Ministry of the Interior to a request of the left-wing fraction reported.
In the first quarter of 2018 there were 6235 deportations. In total, just over 23,600 people were deported from Germany last year.
The Federal Ministry of the Interior confirmed the numbers on Sunday. As one speaker pointed out, these must not be just people who came to Germany as asylum seekers.
According to the report, in the first three months of this year, people were deported mainly to Italy (600), Albania (389) and Georgia (352). In addition, there were about 400 deportations from other states.
