At least 1,000 Afghan migrants were deported from Pakistan on Tuesday, April 14, as Pakistan continues the deportation of undocumented immigrants.

According to the Taliban’s Ministry of Refugees, the migrants entered the country through the Torkham and Spin Boldak border towns.

Those deported included 191 families, the ministry said.

The group also included three Afghan nationals who were recently released from Pakistani prisons.

The mass return and deportation of refugees have raised concerns about their situation in Afghanistan, where they face a lack of shelter, employment, and other essential services.
