Voice Of Europe

While defending recently adopted measures aimed at making deportations simpler and easier, Danish Justice Minister Søren Pape Poulsen of the Conservative People’s Party admitted that country faces a “big problem” with criminal migrants.
Minister Poulsen’s statements follow newly released results from a study which found that Somali migrants were the largest single foreign community in Denmark to be convicted for violent offenses, with 916 convictions between 2014 and 2018 – making them 3.6 times more likely to commit violent crimes than Danish men of the same age and income, according to a report from the Danish newspaper B.T.
Following Somalis with the most violent criminal convictions were Iraqis and Turks.
Unlike many of their Western European counterparts, Danish politicians haven’t attempted to sugar-coat the problem.
“Your data clearly shows that there is a big problem with criminal foreigners that we should not have in our society,” the Justice Minister said while he defended the Danish government’s migration policies.
