Conservatives in the United States have warned for years that accepting mass amounts of refugees from Syria and other Islamic countries would lead to problems.
Now, German police are speaking out, and say crimes committed by refugees has become so common, they fear they’re losing control of the streets.
That’s according to a report from conservative think tank The Gatestone Insitute, who released a report Tuesday titled, “German Streets Descend into Lawlessness.”
“During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office. This is equivalent to 780 crimes committed by migrants every day, an increase of nearly 40% over 2015,” the report says.
That’s not all. Their data only includes those crimes in which a suspect has been caught. Rapes, sexual and physical assaults, and robberies that aren’t reported, or the police don’t catch the suspect, aren’t included.
“Thousands of migrants who entered the country as ‘asylum seekers’ or ‘refugees’ have gone missing. They are, presumably, economic migrants who entered Germany on false pretenses. Many are thought to be engaging in robbery and criminal violence,” The Gatestone Institute report continues.
It’s so bad, local police say they are losing control of the streets — and officers are starting to speak out in protest.
“It cannot be that offenders continue to fill the police files, hurt us physically, insult us, whatever, and there are no consequences. Many cases are closed or offenders are released on probation or whatever. Yes, what is happening in the courts today is a joke,” German police officer Tania Kambouri told researchers.
The migrants “despise our country and laugh at our justice system,” Chief of the German police union Rainer Wend recently told German language paper Kronen Zeitung.
Voters in the United States would be wise to pay attention to the hard lessons being learned in Germany.
It’s clear: Unchecked, open borders are a mistake, and bring more problems than liberals want to admit.
