German Police Study Finds Africans Most Criminally Prone Asylum Seekers

A study conducted by the German Federal Police (BKA) on migrant crime has found that African asylum seekers are far more prone to criminality than their Middle Eastern counterparts.

The study shows that migrants from countries which are far less likely to receive a positive asylum claim are also far more likely to engage in crime while in the country, Stuttgarter Zeitung reports.

Tunisian migrants, who make up just 0.2 per cent of recognised asylum seekers since 2015, account for 2.2 per cent of crimes committed by recognised asylum seekers. The statistics are even more dramatic for Moroccans who account for a mere one per cent of asylum seekers yet are 7.6 per cent of asylum seeker suspects.

Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union, said that the reason for the higher rates of criminality is that migrants who have less of a chance of gaining asylum or residency status have “nothing to lose”.

Syrians, Afghans, and Iraqis, who make up around 62 per cent of recognised asylum seekers, account for 34 per cent of crimes in which asylum seekers are suspects with their most common crimes being physical assault, shoplifting, and drug offences.

In some cities like Berlin, asylum seekers have become more and more active in the local street drug scene after being recruited, often from their asylum homes, by gangs with migrant backgrounds. In some areas, police have said that migrants are totally taking over the drug scene, often using violence.
