Increasing violence was mostly due to immigrant crime, but only because the government is not spending more and taking in more refugees, we are told.
A government study admits that most of the increase in German crime was immigrant crime. But that doesn’t mean, they tell us, that the government should stop its immigration policy. Instead, it means that we shouldn’t import only males but their families as well, because that’s the reason for the crime. Or else it means that the government must “do more” (free stuff) to “integrate” them into German society.
The recent influx of mostly young, male migrants into Germany has led to an increase in violent crime in the country, according to a government-funded study published Wednesday.
The study used figures from the northern state of Lower Saxony to examine the impact of refugee arrivals on crime in 2015 and 2016, a period when the number of violent crimes reported increased by 10.4 percent.
The authors concluded that 92 percent of the additional crimes recorded could be attributed to the increase in refugee numbers.[…]
The findings add to the ongoing debate in Germany about how to tackle migrant crime, which has been fanned by a number of high-profile incidents. Parties on the right, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Union bloc, want a tough response and more deportations, while those on the left say more needs to be done to integrate refugees into German society.
