Figures published on Thursday have revealed that the number of illegal immigrants deported out of Portugal increased by 53 percent in 2005.

According to latest figures, Portugal expelled a total of 784 immigrants last year, up 270 from the 2004 figure of 514.
The figures, compiled by the Immigration Office (SEF) shows that the majority of illegal immigrants deported were Brazilian nationals.
There has also been an increase in the number clandestine residents sent back to their countries of origin without being subjected to an administrative process.
As a result, the state only pays the return ticket of an illegal immigrant, dispensing with the paperwork that would require two officials to accompany an illegal immigrant back to their home countries.
