Up to 90 percent of the asylum seekers that have had their applications rejected in Austria still remain, never having been deported, Austria’s defense minister said, adding that the majority of these migrants come from Africa.

“At the moment, it doesn’t make much difference whether someone gets a negative or positive decision on their asylum application, because we are unable to implement any decision in between 80 and 90 percent of cases,” Hans Peter Doskozil, Austria’s defense minister said, as cited by the Austria Press Agency.

The majority of such rejected applications come from the citizens of African countries, he added. According to the minister, the problem may even worsen as the population of Africa will “double by 2050,” and people will invariably continue to flee and arrive in Austria.
