Right of asylum: the budget 2020 devoted to the return of the rejected stagnates surprisingly

Over 123,000 applications for asylum in 2018. The current government is


dote-t-he in the finance bill 2020 means powerful enough to enforce a maximum of 90,000 annual bond given back at the border? In 2018, only 15.677 returns have been effective from the metropolis.

the increase in retention time of 45 to 90 days in administrative detention centers voted in the law of asylum, immigration would have allowed to achieve, by 2019, 582 removals, additional. From January to September, 13.971 forced removals have been made in metropolitan france, representing a growth of 21.3% compared to the same period in 2018. But it's still very little compared to the number of obligations to leave the territory issued annually: about 90,000.

deputy Jean-Noël Barrot at roughly 500 million euros of the budget allocated to all (police, justice, etc) returns to the border, but it is the mission of the immigration, asylum and integration that is at the heart of the government scheme. Overall, the credits of this mission are to increase between 2019 and 2020 from 1.6 billion to € 1.8 billion, representing a growth of +7.6 per cent thanks to the increase of the funds of the european competition.

200 million of credits required for returns to the border

But, when one examines specifically the fight against irregular migration, we can see that the credits will decrease in 2020 by nearly 10% in 2020 to reach 122.4 million euros. Of this amount, only 33 million will be spent in 2020 in the charge of deportation of people denied the right to asylum. A figure in a very slight increase, but that has been stagnating for 4 years. Thus, if France could not enforce the obligation to leave the territory with 30 million dedicated to the costs of removal by 2019, it is hard to believe that it will happen in 2020, with 33 million!

30 million will finance the deportation of 15,000 people in an irregular situation. It should, therefore, 200 million euros in credit for a ride to the border the approximately 90 000 failed asylum seekers. Is 6 times more than what is expected for 2020. The minimum is € 100 million a year that we should aim for while you are thinking about outsourcing some of the tasks of monitoring and oversight in detention centres or in the field of escorts.

as Well, the return policy at the border suffers from both a sub-investment budget, but also a weakness of the means implemented. Police Air and Borders were in 2018, 3179 refusal to board, 953 flaws escort international/national, 839 absences of seats in flight, 475 absence of flights on specified date and over a hundred of refusal to embark on the part of the commanders of the edges.

in Short, the policy pursued will certainly very slowly in the right direction, but lack terribly of ambition and remains structurally under-dimensioned in relation to the issue of enforcing the 90,000 obligation to leave the territory. At a time when we talk about immigration quotas, at a time when the government understands that these are safe countries (Albania, Morocco, Georgia, etc) that come to the essential part of the future failed asylum seekers, should be the means of our ambitions.
