The proportion of non-Germans convicted of murder rose from 29.27 percent to 39.02 percent of total murders in the period from 2000 to 2020, according to information released from the German government.
The data, which was obtained by Alternative for Germany (AfD) representative in parliament Stephan Brandner after an official request, showed even more alarming figures when it comes to manslaughter convictions. Between 2000 and 2020, the proportion of foreigners convicted for manslaughter went from 37.53 percent of all such cases to 56.25 percent.
How many murders in Germany are committed by refugees? The government refuses to say
As of 2019. refugees make up 2 percent of the population but are responsible for 15 percent of violent crime in Germany
The figures are truly shocking in light of the fact that foreigners only make up about 12 percent of the German population, which means immigrants are disproportionately responsible for murder and manslaughter convictions. Manslaughter convictions, while not outright murder, often involve cases such as when migrants have run over children during street races, a common occurrence in cities like Berlin, with the city’s public prosecutor at the time, Andreas Winkelmann, saying, “Most of the perpetrators are male, in their early 20s and have a migrant background.”

“The unacceptable phenomenon of dramatic foreign crime must finally be solved. The figures clearly show that in Germany we have a huge problem with immigrant criminals. Immigrants from Afghanistan and Syria, in particular, pose a major security problem for our country,” Brandner said.
The data also shows that since 2018, Turkish, Afghan, and Syrian nationals have been identified most frequently among non-German convicted criminals, with these three groups interchangeably being in the top spot over the years.
As Remix News has previously reported, migrants are dramatically overrepresented in other crimes as well, including rape, sexual assault, assault, and robbery. For example, when it comes to gang rape, migrants are represented in over half of the cases in the country, as well as in many of the individual states.

The data does not tell the whole story either, as migrants who have become German citizens are not counted as “foreigners” in the statistics as well as second-generation migrants. As a result, there is no clear breakdown of crime statistics based on ethnicity that would tell the full story about murder and other serious crimes.
Brandner argues that there must be more stringent procedures for controlling if criminal migrants enter the country, as it will help save lives. “They must be checked thoroughly upon entry, turned away in case of doubt, and if criminal offenses have been committed, they must be reacted to with the full force of the law and deported,” he said.
