Comment: Ever thought what it feels to be caught and deported from a country as an undocumented immigrant? The reconstruction of how people are deported from Switzerland these days was made by humanitarian group Augenauf (Open Your Eyes). The video clip was shortly banned after it was broadcast on Swiss television, according to Digital journal. 

After passage of a referendum in November, Swiss authorities can deport today foreigners if they are undocumented immigrants or foreign residents convicted of certain offenses. 

The humiliating way people are deported from Switzerland looks like a convict who placed on an electric chair. The Digital Journal continues:  “The procedure involves the shackling and gagging of deportees, presumably to prevent any effort to escape or protest or to make it as unpleasant as possible to return to Switzerland.”

 Augenauf claims that a Nigerian refugee died of heart attack when he was shackled.
