Migrant in Germany Cannot Be Deported

We all love our favorite cliches. Among them is the notion that: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. We know that this is true. It’s also somewhat amusing.

Fortunately, the adage has a “probably” in it. Because, the news from Germany, emblematic of the absurdity of the German migrant policy, shows a situation where something that sounds too good to be true, really is true.

It’s about a migrant who has spent two decades gaming the German legal system… to stay in the country illegally. He has been investigated hundreds of times, but no one knows where he came from, so they cannot ship him back to where he belongs.

The Daily Mail has the story. What would we do without the Daily Mail?

An EU migrant facing 542 criminal investigations - including robbery and drugs offences - cannot be deported because authorities don't know where he came from.
The man, who arrived in Germany in 1998 without a passport, has allegedly been using legal loopholes to remain in the country.

After being was arrested by German police, he claimed to be from North African countries including Algeria and Morocco.

But authorities do not know the man's name or where he travelled from. A fingerprint search showed no matches.

The migrant, thought to be 59 years old, reportedly lives on the streets of Frankfurt and has 542 investigation proceedings against him.

High commissioner Ruedigar Buchta told German newspaper Bild: 'A third of the proceedings were for possession and purchase of narcotics.

'Some were for the fraudulent acquisition of services like fare dodging. Added to this is assault, theft and robbery, and many offences against the Residence Act.'

German police have since released the man.

It confirms your belief that Germany deserves whatever it is getting from the illegal migrants that it welcomed into the country.

I don't think that is what you meant to write!

It would seem given the number of offenses, that they could at least jail him for 20 years. More or less.
