  • Spanish authorities report that 6.000 unaccompanied youths came into the country in 2018. Spain now has 12.500 under-age illegal migrants on register, the vast majority from Morocco, double the number of the previous year and it is expected to rise further throughout 2019. Thousands of them stray into the rest of Europe, looking for a residence permit: the number of official registered as having gone ‘missing’ is now 5.950.

  • It would seem Die Welt pretty much just reported the conclusions of the BKA report. In about 1 in 10 solved crimes, an immigrant was a suspect. They were overrepresented in violent crimes, including murder, and crimes with a sexual component. Immigrant participation in drugs-related crime grew strongest in 2018.

  • It’s been almost 4 years now, that a group of about 60 illegal immigrants has been wandering the streets of Amsterdam under the name of “We Are Here”. Refusing to abide by the national asylum procedure, the group has claimed they “are here” to stay and has made it very clear they have no intention of going back to their home countries any time soon.

  • “I am happy and frightened at the same time. Happy and relieved that he is out of the country. Finally. Frightened, because right after he landed there, I received a direct dead threat from Somalia. It is very, very intimidating. I know it’s him. (…) He feels he is the victim. He is far away, but his friends are still here. He has threatened me before. He should be convicted for that too.”

  • According to 24Kalmar, the two convicted men claimed that the woman had been a willing participant in the gang rape. The court, however, found this unconvincing. Moreover, photographs made during the rape show, according to the court, “the men’s special ruthlessness and cruelty.” More details are only available from Samhällsnytt. Apparently quoting from the verdict (Kalmar District Court case B 3154-17), the article, the only one to do so, gives details about the attack.

  • “The victim has been subjected to various attacks, such as the spreading of rumours, among them accusations on social media that she had not reported the crime to the police. (…) Her daughter has also been exposed, at school and elsewhere, to verbal abuse and physical attack. At night, stones were thrown at the family’s house.”

  • “Germany is becoming more diverse, open, informal and hip. (…) Many of the country’s defining traits—its ethnic and cultural homogeneity, conformist and conservative society, and unwillingness to punch its weight in international diplomacy—are suddenly in flux.”
