Migrants twice as likely to be crime suspects German study shows
Data gathered by the police in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany show that migrants are twice as likely to be suspects in crimes, according to a new study.

Conducted by the Criminological Research Institute of Lower Saxony (KFN), the study examined crime statistics from 2013 to 2016. German citizens, it found, were underrepresented in crime relative to population size.
Norddeutsche Rundfunk reported that the criminologists noted a large number of migrants flooding into Germany were young men who are more prone to criminality than women or other age groups.
“Young men become more likely to be criminal at all times and in all cultures studied so far – that is a very well-established criminological fact,” according to Professor Thomas Bliesener.
A lack of education also contributed to the high crime rates associated with migrants, according to the study.
As reasons for the higher migrant crime rate, the experts also cited a tendency of lower socioeconomic status, lower chances for social participation and a focus on the cities. There are more opportunities for criminals in cities, they said.
Between 2013 and 2016, theft and sex crimes had skyrocketed in the federal state. Victims of the crimes committed by migrants included others from migrant backgrounds, as well.
Claus Schaffer, AfD politician, tweeted that the KFN study only confirmed what his party had maintained all along regarding migrant crime.

Left-wing Green Party politician Burkhard Peters meanwhile argued that the situation could be solved through “better access to education”.
Migrants are over-represented in crime statistics in many German federal states. In Munich, such crimes account for half of the suspects and in the southern state of Bavaria as a whole, migrant sex attacks increased by 91 per cent in 2017.
In Lower Saxony, criminologists found a direct link between mass migration and increased rates of violent crime in a similar study.
