North African Illegal Immigration in Europe Unfolding

 Illegal Immigration in Europe

Illegal Immigration in Europe

When you think of North Africa the thought of a “pressure cooker” will not enter your mind, but that’s exactly what’s taking place in Africa.  There are roughly 50,000 African migrants desperate to migrate into Europe and the easiest route is via the Strait of Gibraltar. Criminals are making a fortune smuggling migrants desperate to circumvent border controls in Morocco in order to enter “paradise” which in this case in Spain.

These migrants are so desperate that they are willing to do anything and in many cases resort to violence as a large portion of them are young men filled with testosterone.

Illegal Immigration in Europe Might Be Fuelling Violent Crime

The study used data from Lower Saxony, a state where more than 90% of the rise was attributed to young male migrants. The researchers say the findings are not surprising because many migrants who arrived in Germany in recent years are single males aged 14-30. This group is most likely to commit a crime, irrespective of nationality.

The researchers said that the best chance of reducing violent crime among migrants was to offer more help with integration through language courses, sport and apprenticeships.

But it said that many male migrants fell into the 14-30 age category, the most likely to commit a violent crime.

The lack of women and families among the migrants also meant that those young men were deprived of a “violence-preventing, civilising force”, the study said.

“Anyone who as a war refugee regards their chances of staying in Germany as good, will endeavour not to jeopardise those prospects by criminal offences,” the authors of the study said, quoted by Die Welt newspaper.

Reuters news agency quoted criminology expert and study author Christian Pfeiffer as saying: “The situation is completely different for those who find out as soon as they arrive that they are totally undesirable here. No chance of working, of staying here.”

In the Lower Saxony figures, 17% of crimes attributed to migrants were suspected of being committed by North Africans. Full Story

Study Finds Immigrants in Europe Linked to Soaring violence & crime

A Germany university found that a 10.4 per cent 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 per cent of the 10.4 per cent 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. Full Story

Europe’s Stance towards Illegal Immigrants Hardening

In Italy, Matteo Salvini, the interior minister and leader of the populist Northern League, calls migrants “lazy criminals”. He has promised to deport up to 500,000 illegal immigrants and has closed Italy’s ports to asylum-seekers rescued at sea. Italy’s new prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, is demanding a permanent Europe-wide deal to share the refugee burden, ending the current system under which the first country where migrants arrive is responsible for processing their asylum applications. Full Story
