Many people are afraid of deportation. In 2022, 12,945 people were deported. Deportations often take place through Frankfurt/Main International Airport. Individuals are brought to the airport from detention centers, accommodations, or their homes. The author explains how a deportation process unfolds, including who is accompanied by the Federal Police to the destination and who is not. When is a deportation halted? When is the use of immediate force applied? The deportation monitoring at Frankfurt Airport is a valuable point of contact for those affected, their families, lawyers, Caritas, and Diakonie (Christian social services organizations).
