Germany and North Africa split over illegal migrants

As European countries such as Germany continue to debate deportation and the influx of migrants, North African countries have put the issue on the backburner while they address political and economic problems domestically. This is in spite of the fact that the proportion of North African migrants generally does not exceed 2 percent of all migrants in the country. North African countries, however, do not seem to consider the issue a priority. Many North African migrants are younger - young people account for up to 70 percent of the population of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The North African communities in Germany, such as Düsseldorf's Eller Strasse neighborhood and the Kalk district of Cologne, are facing backlash.
