More than 7,000 German women have been raped or assaulted by migrants since 2015
01/04/2024 // Richard Brown // Views

An analysis of German government figures found that, since 2015, at least 7,000 women in Germany have been raped or sexually assaulted by alleged asylum-seeking illegal immigrants.

According to the Swiss German newspaper Neue Zurcher Zeitung, data from Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office indicates that, since 2017, over a thousand women have reported being sexually assaulted by immigrants every year.

Extrapolating from these figures, the paper estimates that at least 7,000 women had suffered rape or sexual assault by asylum seekers since the onset of the European migrant crisis in 2015, when former Chancellor Angela Merkel opened Germany's gates to waves of migrants from the Middle East and Africa.

Last year, the report notes, asylum-seeking migrants were significantly overrepresented in reported rape and sexual assault cases. Of approximately 10,000 suspects, 6,366 were German, while 3,679 were foreigners. Notably, 1,115 were asylum-seeking migrants, constituting just 2.5 percent of the population but accounting for over 11 percent of sex assaults and rapes.

This aligns with existing trends, with migration researcher Ruud Koopmans finding that asylum seekers were five times more likely to be involved in rape cases and 3.3 times more likely to commit sex crimes, including harassment and abuse.

While the high proportion of young male asylum seekers may contribute to these figures, Koopmans highlights certain nationalities, such as Syrians, Afghanis and Pakistanis, where societal norms may contribute to a higher incidence of such crimes.

Manuel Ostermann, deputy chairman of the German Federal Police Union, emphasized that migrants committing sexual offenses, mainly against German women, are often known to the police, sometimes with prior convictions, yet remain in the country due to lenient deportation standards.

Ostermann stressed the urgent need to prevent individuals involved in crimes against sexual self-determination from staying in Germany.

The co-leader of the right-wing Alternative for Germany party, Alice Weidel, attributed the alarming situation to the "irresponsible policy of open borders since 2015." She urged the government to prioritize the protection of its citizens rather than tolerating foreign criminals.

In response, the leftist Minister of the Interior, Social Democrat Nancy Faeser, condemned the acts as abhorrent but refrained from addressing the broader issue of mass migration.

Stricter sexual assault laws make it easier to deport convicted migrants

This issue of sexual violence by migrants has persisted in Germany, exemplified by the New Year's Eve attacks in 2015, where predominantly North African and Middle Eastern migrant men assaulted over a thousand women in multiple cities including Cologne, Hamburg and Dusseldorf and Frankfurt am Main.

Many perpetrators never faced justice, with only six men convicted of sex crimes related to the attacks.

Stricter sexual assault law was passed in 2016, which includes provisions that could ease deportation rules for refugees convicted of sex-related offenses.

The legislation intensifies penalties for anyone convicted of sexual assault, irrespective of nationality, and introduces specific jail-then-deportation rules for convicted refugees who sought asylum in Germany.

The modifications aim at two interconnected objectives: closing legal loopholes related to sexual assaults, addressing complaints that German codes are too lenient, and responding to the increasing public backlash following the large influx of migrants and refugees from the Middle East and beyond in the previous year.

However, some lawmakers and activists oppose linking the two issues, arguing that it could further stigmatize refugees as German public opinion turns against them.

Previously, perpetrators had to be proven to have made threats or used physical force to be convicted of rape in Germany.

Experts have long argued that the country's criminal code lags behind that of other developed countries, where sexual assault is more broadly defined to include non-consensual contact. In 2014, a German association of women's counseling centers found dozens of cases where sex offenders were not prosecuted due to legal loopholes.

Lawmakers who supported the new law argue that its passage will facilitate the conviction of suspects and lead to more severe sentences.
