GERMANY TURNING AWAY MORE UNDOCUMENTED MIGRANTS AT BORDERS
BERLIN—The German government is working to curb the influx of migrants into the country despite its welcoming discourse on refugees, statistics released on Tuesday suggest. Authorities here turned back more undocumented migrants at German borders during the first half of this year and deported more foreigners without residency permits than during all of 2015, according to the latest government figures. Germany denied 13,324 migrants entry at its borders in the period from January to June—nearly 50% more than the 8,913 people it rejected in 2015.
