China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Around 55,000 mi­grants who were not el­i­gi­ble for or were re­fused asy­lum left Ger­many vol­un­tar­ily be­tween Jan­uary and Novem­ber 2016, up by 20,000 from the to­tal num­ber who left vol­un­tar­ily last year, a news­pa­per re­ported on Wed­nes­day. Ger­many has tough­ened its stance on im­mi­gra­tion in re­cent months, prompted by con­cerns about se­cu­rity and in­te­gra­tion af­ter ad­mit­ting more than 1.1 mil­lion mi­grants from the Mid­dle East, Africa and else­where since early last year.
