German statistics: Asylum immigrants are particularly often suspected of murder and manslaughter

For every eighth serious bodily harm since 2015, asylum immigrants are suspected. This is reported by Welt and is based on a special evaluation of the Police Crime Statistics (PKS) by the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA).

This shows the following:

  • Serious or dangerous bodily harm: From the beginning of 2015 to the end of 2019, a total of 715,134 suspects were identified. 95,282 immigrants were among them - this corresponds to a share of 13.3 percent.
  • Murder and manslaughter: This is the most serious crime category. There, the proportion of asylum immigrants among the identified suspects was even higher, namely at 14.9 percent (2050 of a total of 13,775 suspects).

In other words: Asylum immigrants are overrepresented in serious acts of violence, as they only represent around one fiftieth of the total population.

However, it should be remembered that the statistics only count the criminal suspects identified and not convicted offenders. In addition, it does not include immigrants not recorded; However, with 2525 suspects, these did not play such a major role. And: suspects can only be identified for a little more than every second registered crime.

The reasons

  • Young men are more likely to be perpetrators, and asylum immigrants are more likely to be young men: every third suspect in Germany is between 18 and 29. Among the first-time asylum applicants from 2015 to 2018, 36 percent were of this age - among the German population it is only 13 percent.
  • However, this only partially explains the overrepresentation in violent crimes. It can also be determined when comparing only young men with and without a German passport. In other words: social and cultural factors seem to be even more important.
