Deportations are a crime
They act as a criminalization, punishment and deterrent of refugees and migrants – remand pending deportation and deportations were and are a central part of the European border-regime.

’Clarifications Of Identity’ And Trade Of ’Return Documents’
Unite Against Corrupt Deportation Trade

In order to maintain their control regime over borders and migration, the states of the EU depend on the collaboration of governments and public authorities in the migrants’ countries of origin and in transit countries. Without their collaboration they would not be able to deport people who made it to Europe. After all, as is generally known, a deportation is not possible unless there is a state that is willing to ’take back’ the deported person. And therefore the states that conduct deportations need travelling documents giving migrants the right to enter the target country.
