German city orders bulletproof vests for deportation officers

The German city of Essen has ordered 128 custom bulletproof vests for deportation officers, suggesting that they face grave danger in carrying out their duty.

    The protective gear will go mainly for the newly created, Central Immigration Office (ZAB) of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Some are also to be used in municipal orders.

    As Bloomberg reported in May, Germany has a problem with illegal immigrants who have been denied asylum because they become violent if apprehended.he creation of the Central Immigration Officer (ZAB)

    In May this year, police in Ellwangen in the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg had to retreat when 150 other Africans heavily outnumbered 24 officers carrying out a deportation order.

    The African migrants forced the officers to hand over the keys to the rejected immigrant’s handcuffs.

    In June, a failed Nigerian asylum seeker stole a firearm from a police officer in Landshut, tried to shoot the officer, but failed after three other officers intervened. The migrant then stabbed one of the officers and another was injured, Die Welt reported.

    Rainer Wendt, chief of the German Police Trade Union (DPolG), has noted that migrants are purposely disrespectful to law enforcement officers. “They despise our country and laugh at our justice.”

    The ZAB’s 300 employees are expected to work from a new office that was formerly used as an asylum seeker accommodation.

    The Essen Citizens’ Alliance (EBB) welcomed the move: “The repatriation of non-resident foreigners must finally be improved. We need more deportations. If rejected asylum seekers are not deported, this undermines the acceptance of the rule of law.”

    From next month, the ZAB will be tasked with the deportation of some 21 000 failed asylum seekers in the region.

    For 2016 and 2017, 406 153 people were denied asylum in Germany, but only 49 300 illegals were deported or left the country. Many of the unsuccessful asylum seekers appeal the denials in the courts to remain in Germany indefinitely.

    Last year, Germany only deported 7 102 people to the EU countries where the asylum seekers had entered into Europe, according to Bloomberg.

    Bullying and harassment at Sweden’s new Gender Equality Agency

    Sweden is often synonymous with feminist fanaticism. The country's Gender Equality Agency was opened in January this year and is thus one of its newest agencies. However, even before the government could celebrate a year, 70 percent of the staff are at risk of ill health and more than half suffer from burnout and fatigue. It seems the agency's disastrous workplace culture is related to its staunchly feminist leadership. There is not a single man in the "equal" management group.
