Some 200,000 migrants in Germany have been living in legal limbo, unable to work, with a visa status known as “tolerated”. These migrants’ asylum claims have been rejected, but they cannot be deported, often because crisis situations in their home countries won’t allow it. The government now wants to address their plight by granting some of them legal residency status.
