Approximately three-quarters of the asylum seekers in France face little chance of deportation as the country is expected to have received a record number of asylum cases this yearm, reports Breitbart.
France could see as many as 130,000 asylum cases heard in 2018 according to new figures which would top last year’s record number of applications that stood at 100,000, Le Figaro reports.
Newly released French Senate reports have claimed that most asylum seekers, up to 75 percent, do not face deportation and it is almost certain they will stay in the country.
The new reports represent a massive challenge for incoming Interior Minister Christophe Castaner who was appointed earlier this week following the resignation of Gerard Collomb.
A number of illegal migrants coming into France have used French overseas territories like French Guiana in South America and Mayotte in the Indian Ocean as entry points to claim asylum.
