by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

Immigration was a central theme of Donald Trump's successful run for the White House.

He consistently pledged to build a wall along the US-Mexico border and recently stated that he intends to imprison or deport up to three million illegal immigrants. In Europe, freedom of movement has resulted in much debate and proved one of the primary reasons people in the UK voted in favour of Brexit.

Just last week, the European Union released figures showing how many non-EU citizens received deportation orders from member states in 2015. Greece served the most, 104,576. Even before Brexit, the United Kingdom was one of the top-three nations in Europe for ordering non EU-citizens to leave with 70,020 orders issued. last year. It is important to note that being issued with a deportation order does not guarantee deportation. Some people decide to leave voluntarily while others cut contact with their respective immigration authorities.

This chart shows non-EU citizens ordered to leave member states and share of total orders in 2015.
