The Republic of South Africa has begun deportation of mostly African migrants.

South African authorities have commenced deporting 20 refugees and asylum seekers who were part of a months-long sit-in protest against xenophobia, the Home Affairs department said Friday.

They are mostly from African countries and demanded to be resettled outside South Africa.

“The deportation of these foreign nationals follows a successful law enforcement operation which was undertaken by the Department Inspectorate officials, supported by South African Police Service (SAPS), the City of Cape Town and the departments of Social Development and Health, at the temporary facility at Paint City in Bellville, Cape Town.”

The deportation of the 20 foreign nationals followed “due process” and was confirmed by the court on Monday and Tuesday in terms of the immigration laws of the country, the Home Affairs Department added.
