Speaking to ANA-MPA on Tuesday, Tsirigoti had said they will be deported because specific migrants were responsible for the recent violent incidents in the temporary accommodation centers were they were staying and this is why they would be deported.
To resolve any misunderstandings, she made a new statement: “There are refugee and migration flows. The refugee flows include refugees and migrants with a refugee profile. Migration flows consist of economic migrants who are divided into those who can be deported and those who cannot be deported.
Nationals of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia are included in the category of economic migrants who can be deported and therefore police issues decisions of deportation or return [to their countries], after we record the person,” she said.
The participation, then, by nationals of these countries in incidents that took place in a facility of temporary accommodation is in no way connected with their inclusion in the category of deportable economic migrants,” she added.
