'Migrants' Responsible for Steep Rise in German Crime Rate

Least surprising news story of the year. The only wonder is that the Germans are actually admitting it:

A Germany university found that a 10.4 percent increase in violent crime was linked to an influx of migrants into the country's southern region. The increase in crime took place in 2015 and 2016 at the height of the European migration crisis, when German Chancellor Angela Merkel ignored E.U. rules and allowed an open-door policy for migrants entering the state from war-torn Syria.

More than 90 percent of the 10.4 percent increase in reported violent crimes was attributed to young male migrants in Germany's southern state of Lower Saxony, according to a new study from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. A huge wave of migrants flooded into the European Union in 2015 from countries through Greece and Turkey that led to more than one million migrants applying for asylum in Germany.

The study funded by Germany's Ministry of Family Affairs found that many violent crimes reported by police in that time linked to male migrants between 14 and 30 years old, according to Deutsche Welle. Violent crimes were significantly less likely to be committed by male migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria than they were by male migrants from northern Africa, the study said.

Lower Saxony -- Niedersachsen, in German -- is  part of the industrial heartland of what used to be West Germany.

Economically powerful and populous Germany often sets the tone for E.U. immigration policies. In September 2017, the Court of Justice  ruled that E.U. countries had to reach a quota of immigrants and that the quota was "necessary to respond effectively and swiftly to an emergency situation characterized by a sudden inflow of displaced persons" despite resistance in Hungary, Slovakia and other member countries.

In 2015, Chancellor Merkel ignored E.U. rules to deport Syrian asylum seekers back to their home country, which lead to Germany's migrant crisis.

The politically incorrect Europeans -- what few of them there still are -- now refer to "asylum seekers" as "asylum spoofers," which is a much more accurate term. Because the question the governments of Europe refuses to ask is: asylum from what?
