Despite being charged with some 542 crimes over a 20-year period, a migrant walks the streets of Frankfurt, Germany because no one knows who he is or where he came from.
Police have had no choice but to let the unidentified migrant return to the streets he has called home since 1998 when he arrived in Germany with no passport or documentation of who he is, RT World News reported Friday.

Ruediger Buchta, a high commissioner with the Frankfurt police said of the migrant’s crimes: “One third of the investigations were related to possession and purchase of drugs,” while other charges have included “fraudulent acquisition of services like fare dodging,” as well as “assault, theft, robbery” and numerous “offenses against the Residence Act.”
Police have not been able to deport the migrant since they have no idea where to send him.
The man has claimed to come from Algeria and Morocco, but authorities cannot confirm this. In addition, database searches for his fingerprints have not generated any matches.
The migrant refuses to give authorities any information about himself, including his name, leaving him to dodge legal loopholes.

Michael Seyfert, a migration spokesman for the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party said: “It is a failure of the system; it is a failure of the government. German authorities simply “do not dare to [extradite people] as they are afraid of the left-wing media and… protests.” Additionally, various “NGOs… protest against it and even try to prevent [deportations] physically. ”
Migrant crime continues to rise in Germany with cases of violence, sexual assaults, and robbery reported daily, Jihad Watch reported.
Police data cited by the German Die Welt reports that out of 23,900 extraditions that German police carried out between January and May 2018, 12,800 failed for various reasons.
Migrants up for deportation often disappear or physically resist deportation, and they do so successfully.
Germany was flooded with migrants and asylum seekers after German Chancellor Angela Merkel enforced an ‘open door policy’ during the refugee crisis. She now knows this has caused problems and she is seeking help abroad.
Last Wednesday, Merkel traveled to West Africa to meet with Senegalese President Macky Sall, as well as stops in Ghana and Nigeria. She was accompanied by entrepreneurs working in the fields of electrification, automation, and infrastructure.
Discussions about migration were buried under combatting human trafficking and preventing smugglers who pave the path of illegal migration into Europe. Merkel and Sall did agree that the development of African countries would be the best way to stop the problem of migrants entering European countries.

Merkel advised German companies to place a bigger stake into advancing Africa and to fight against their negative stigma where many say the risks outweigh the benefits.
Germany’s eastern city of Chemnitz is battling violent riots currently that began when two asylum seekers of Syrian and Iraqi origin killed a German man. As right-wing radicals and leftists clashed against each other and with police, at least 20 injuries have been reported.
As tensions rise, all eyes are on Merkel and the outcome of her visit.
