The German government has mounted an aggressive campaign to encourage illegal migrants to leave – bribing them with free rent for a year in their home countries.

“Your country. Your future. Now!” read billboards in seven languages, plastered in nearly 2,500 locations across 80 German cities, reports the National Post.

A series of flags corresponding with the top-destinations – Egypt, Turkey, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Russia – shapes a zigzagging road to a fictional horizon.

The “ReturningfromGermany” ad campaign is the latest tactic by the German government to boost departures and deter migration, in a reversal of Angela Merkel’s controversial welcoming policy of 2015 at the height of the Syrian refugee crisis. The campaign is the brainchild of interior minister Horst Seehofer, Merkel’s rebellious right-wing rival, who forced a coalition crisis over Germany’s asylum policy last summer. -National Post

As rejected asylum claims pile up – and arrivals have normalized since a flood of 700,000 migrants three years ago, the billboard campaign is aimed at the roughly 235,000 people who are still required to leave the country according to the interior ministry.

Most asylum seekers whose claims have been rejected can’t return to their country of origin due for several reason; danger, lack of documentation or they suffer from an illness. The German government has dubbed these people “duldung,” which means “tolerated.”

Denied asylum seekers who don’t fit either of those categories typically don’t show up for their deportation. Of more than 20,000 scheduled airport repatriations in 2018, just half of them appeared to take flights back home.

Seehofer, the German interior minister, aims to encourage migrants to leave with the cash-giveaway billboard campaign – offering 1,000 – 1,200 euros for a single person and 3,000 for families to provide for basic needs.

Not everyone is a fan of the new “stepping stone system,” in which “you get more money if you choose to leave earlier on,” according to Meiki Riebau – a lawyer and migration expert at Save the Children Germany.

Riebau – who is not a fan of the campaign, says “It’s a tasteless Christmas present.”
