Are Immigrants Causing a Swedish Crime Wave?S0, stop worrying about what immigrants will do over the next 5 or 10 years. Worry instead about what their descendants will do over the next 50 or 100 years. Don’t you feel better already?

TAKING NOTE MARCH 2, 2017
Not the recent ones. There is a huge debate in Sweden about immigration and crime. And we know from earlier statistics that the foreign-born commit three times as many crimes on average as native-borns. But these riots and crimes in the suburbs, they are related mostly to drugs and gangs. Those people are born and raised in Sweden. It has nothing to do with the recent immigration. It’s the children of migrants and maybe people that came when they were young.There has been this issue of sexual harassment. And there is some evidence that the new refugees are somewhat involved in this. But there are no official statistics on it.
