Every eleventh crime in Hamburg is committed by an asylum seeker

    The percentage was 8.6 percent in the previous year, but has climbed to 9.5 percent in the first six months of this year. So every eleventh suspect is an asylum seeker. This has emerged from the answer to a parliamentary request from the CDU Civic Member Dennis Gladiator.

    The CDU politician made it clear: “Anyone who commits crimes may no longer enjoy the right to stay.” He added: “The deeds of the offenders have brought discriminators into total discredit,” he told the Hamburger Abendblatt.

    According to the response of the Hamburg Senate, asylum seekers have become particularly prominent in the areas of theft, assault, abuse of services and drug-related offenses. In violence, the proportion of asylum seekers increased by 1.2 percentage points to 13 percent. Out of 295 apprehended pickpockets, 86 have refugee status.

    An increase of suspected asylum seekers was recorded in the statistics of the Hamburg police regarding sexual offenses. In 2017, their rate of rape was 12.7 percent, this year is has increased to 14.6 percent.

    In crimes against sexual orientation, an increase in suspects that are asylum seekers was noted from 8.8 percent to 11.8 percent.

    Among the 17 405 non-German alleged offenders are 1 493 Afghans, 713 Syrians, 458 Ghanaians and 346 Iraqis. According to statistics, the proportion of asylum seekers in the total population of the Hanseatic city is a mere 0.5 percent.

    The Green Youth meanwhile has demanded an immigration right for so-called “climate refugees” in a new bid to create sympathy for migrants as news of increased migrant crimes continue to reach readers.

    They say the EU should offer the citizens of island states that are threatened by climate change, European citizenship and “allow them a dignified migration,” according to the chairperson of the Green Youth, Ricarda Lang.

    She told the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland that “such a climate pass would not only be a question of solidarity, but also of responsibility – after all, it is, among other things, the countries of the European Union that have contributed to the manmade climate catastrophe through an irresponsible energy, economic and agricultural policy,” said Lang.

    It is often claimed that their generation is the last that could stop climate change, explained the Green Youth leader. But that’s only half true. In many southern countries, the consequences of environmental destruction and global warming have long been felt, she argued.

    “In the Pacific Island states, climate change is no longer a fear, but a tough reality,” warned Lang. Therefore, the EU should allow the residents there to become inhabitants of Europe.
