How a enforced border keeps us healthy

Border Patrol struggles with flood of sick migrantsSick migrant

The Washington Examiner reports in a 27 January 2019 article how the Border Patrol has started to feel overwhelmed by sick illegal aliens.

Border Patrol agents have spent nearly 20,000 hours since October driving asylum seekers to and from hospitals for medical evaluations, according to newly released Department of Homeland Security data.

Since Oct. 1, 2018, the Border Patrol, which works in rural areas between border crossings, has “seen an increase in the numbers of apprehended individuals requiring medical assistance.”

A total of 2,224 migrants, primarily from Guatemala and Honduras, have been hospitalized due to health issues that could not be treated on site in the last month alone, according to a CBP statement.

With a small (but significant) minority of our population not trusting vaccinations, we don’t need the added burden of a sick population coming into the nation. In the past, America quarantined sick immigrants.

With flesh-eating bacteria and Ebola causing problems in certain sectors of the globe, is there a reason to open up a portion of our border by not having a barrier?

Los Angeles typhus epidemic

Typhus Epidemic Worsens in Los Angeles

According to a 31 January 2019 article from the local affiliate of NBC, a typhus epidemic has worsened.

A veteran Los Angeles City Hall official is one of the latest victims of an epidemic of the infectious disease typhus that continues to worsen across LA County.

For months, LA County public health officials have said typhus is mainly hitting the homeless population.

But Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, tells NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.

“It felt like somebody was driving railroad stakes through my eyes and out the back of my neck,” Greenwood told the I-Team. “Who gets typhus? It’s a medieval disease that’s caused by trash.”

Admittedly, the typhus epidemic in LA likely stems from the weather, drug use, and cleanliness issues of the homeless community.

Still, do we need to make this worse by keeping our Southern border open?

Migrant with flesh-eating bacteria detained at US border

Migrant with flesh-eating bacteria detained at US border

We read in a 25 January 2019 Associated Press article that an illegal alien with flesh-eating bacteria has been turned over by Border Patrol to a US hospital.

A man among a group of migrants detained in a desolate part of New Mexico near the border with Mexico has been diagnosed as infected with flesh-eating bacteria, the U.S. Border Patrol said Friday.

The man was taken to a hospital in recent days after telling a federal agent that he had a growing rash on his leg, U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Antunez said.

Flesh-eating bacteria are a rare condition called necrotizing fasciitis that spreads quickly and can be fatal. The bacteria usually gets into the body through a minor cut or scrape and can cause a serious infection that can destroy muscle, skin and other tissue.

Another 300 migrants, mostly Central Americans, were detained Thursday south of Lordsburg near an official U.S.-Mexico border crossing, Antunez said. Some had illnesses and injuries and were taken to hospitals for treatment.

The sparsely populated, desert area has experienced a significant influx of large migrant groups recently.

Nearly 10,000 migrants have been detained at New Mexico’s three Border Patrol stations since Oct. 1, officials said.
There were 12,800 detentions at the three stations from October 2017 through September 2018.

Since this bacteria generally comes from open wounds contacting sewage in warm water, this might underscore the magnitude of the numbers coming to the US. Shouldn’t we be securing our Southern border?

Texas says it found 95,000 non-citizens on voter rolls

The importance of a border shown in elections

Texas says it found 95,000 non-citizens on voter rolls; 58,000 have voted

According to a 26 January 2019 Fox News article, over 58,000 fraudulent voters have been identified in Texas.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday that the state has discovered 95,000 non-citizens on the voter rolls going back to 1996, 58,000 of whom have voted in at least one Texas election — an announcement likely to raise fresh concerns about the prospect of voter fraud.

Texas has some of the toughest voter ID laws in the nation and has been one of the main battlegrounds in the Republican-led fight against alleged voter fraud. The office, in a statement, said that 33 people were prosecuted for voter fraud last year, and 97 were prosecuted between 2005-17. There are 16 million people in Texas registered to vote.

“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice,” Paxton said in a statement.

The New York Times reported that the findings were a result of of an 11-month investigation into records at the Texas Department of Public Safety. Gov. Greg Abbott praised the findings and hinted at future legislation to crack down on voter fraud.

If we do not secure our voting, then we do not have verifiable elections. This needs to be fixed.

We need to prosecute those who voted illegally. Additionally, we need to take steps to ensure this does not happen again. That includes building a wall.

Migrant Caravan Swells to 12,000

Migrant Caravan Swells to 12,000 at Mexico’s Southern Border

Breitbart tells us in a 26 January 2019 article how another 12,000 potential illegal aliens have aimed at the the US Southern border.

The ranks of a new Central American migrant caravan reportedly grew in size to more than 12,000 as of Friday. The caravan is now heading to Mexico’s southern border.

Mexican immigration officials in the city of Ciudad Hidalgo, which borders Guatemala, are establishing procedures to expedite the process in which to approve one-year humanitarian visas for members of the Central American migrant caravan who are arriving daily. The one-year humanitarian visas, promised by Mexico’s new President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is a newly adopted policy which allows migrants to legally travel and work during their stay in Mexico.

The new policy of handing out humanitarian visas began on January 17 in response to the new caravan of primarily Honduran migrants who left their home country and headed towards the Mexican border on January 15. Officials originally estimated the caravan’s size at about 2,000. Mexico now claims the caravan’s population swelled to over 12,000 migrants, according to local media and Breitbart Texas sources.

Officials put the new visa policy from President López Obrador in place to deal with caravan migrants as an attempt to prevent them from traveling unaccounted for throughout Mexico. Officials say it will also prevent the caravan members from having to illegally enter Mexico from Guatemala by crossing the Suchiate river.

As long as there is a better economy in the US than in Central America, it looks like this will keep up. One news source even said that one country was paying caravan members to come to the US. For this reason alone, we need a wall.

Mortality on the border: it’s a dangerous trek

Nearly 400 Migrants Died Crossing Unsecured U.S. Border in 2018

In a 1 January 2019 Breitbart article, the deadliness of the trek to America comes into focus.

Nearly 400 migrants lost their lives while or shortly after crossing the U.S. border with Mexico. More than half died in Texas.

In 2018, at least 376 died while crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S. or shortly thereafter, according to the International Organization for Migration’s Missing Migrant Project. Due to the partial shutdown of the U.S. government, the organization has not updated the numbers since December 21.

The organization reported the deaths of 214 men, 20 women, and four children. In addition, 138 sets of remains could not be identified by age or sex.

Of the reported 376 migrant deaths, more than 230 occurred in Texas, Breitbart News reported. Forty-eight of those occurred in Brooks County alone, which is located about 80 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border.

An exact number of migrant deaths is not known because many deceased migrants are never found.

With the exception of the two Guatemalan children who died recently after crossing the border into New Mexico, the deaths of the other 374 migrants drew little attention from U.S. media.

Democrats provide ammunition against themselves

Democrats Offer Plan to Release All Child Traffickers at Border into U.S.

Brietbart reports in a 3 February 2019 article how Democrats have plans to release child traffickers at the US border.

The House Democrats’ first offer to President Trump in negotiations to fund his proposed United States-Mexico border wall includes a provision that would end all immigration enforcement for migrants trafficking children across the southern border.

The draft budget provides the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency with $7.4 billion, nearly $850 million less than requested by the Trump administration, and funds only 1,250 beds for adults and migrant children coming across the border this year, a decrease in detention space.

Attached to that funding, though, is an immigration enforcement ban first introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and supported by every Senate Democrat. The Democrats’ offer demands that all immigration enforcement end for any adult crossing the border with a child by the end of Fiscal Year 2019.

Rather than being held in detention for a period of time, those adults and the migrant children they trafficked across the U.S.-Mexico border would be released immediately into the interior of the country.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) previously called the plan the “Child Trafficking Encouragement Act” as it ensures that adults bringing children to the southern border would gain immediate access into the U.S. without fear of being deported or turned away.

Add this to the abortion-up-to-birth in New York and Virginia and tell me that Democrats care for children.

Welfare for illegal aliens

Study: More than 7-in-10 California Immigrant Households Are on Welfare

According to a 4 December 2018 Breitbart article, a vast majority of the illegal aliens in California receive welfare.

The latest Census Bureau data analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that about 72 percent of households headed by noncitizens and immigrants use one or more forms of taxpayer-funded welfare programs in California — the number one immigrant-receiving state in the U.S.

Meanwhile, only about 35 percent of households headed by native-born Americans use welfare in California.

When the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy saying “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8 NASB), he was pointing out the importance of work. Working to support a family establishes the leader of the family. Sacrificing for a family shows the love in one’s heart.

Therefore, when a third party (the US welfare state) steps into the family dynamic, something will give. Someone from the Black Christian community should tell these “immigrants” about the problems the US welfare state has brought by providing only a hand out with no hand up.

The Left, with its short memory, might ask “what hand up?” It seems that they forget that, from the Red Cross to many local hospitals, Christians established a charitable organizations that give to the poor. Additionally, we are the most likely to continue giving. The only thing many on the right ask of these illegals is that they turn and do it the legal way.

73%_Ilegals_on_welfare

63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program

A 2 December 2018 Neil Munro article on Breitbart digs through a study by the Center for Immigration Studies. In that study, almost 2/3 of all households headed by an illegal alien have been found to be using the American welfare system (as opposed to about half of that for native-born Americans).

“In 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared to 35 percent of native-headed households,” says the group’s December 3 report, which relies on federal data to track migrant use of welfare.

“A very large share of immigrants are unable to support their own children and turn to taxpayer-funded means-tested programs,” the report says. “In terms of the policy debate over immigration and the implications for public coffers, this is the central concern.”

When someone else pays for a service that another person consumes, two things happen:

  1. The resources of the payer become ever more scarce.
  2. The consumer tends to over-consume.

Whether the health care system or the welfare system is the point of contention, there will come a time when there are too many nickel-and-dime charges to the system. Likewise, there will come a time when the bill will come due for welfare. I don’t know if that bill will manifest by raising limits on who gets the allotments or if they will just close the office, but the bill will come.

Not a new problem: 2011 study shows 70% of illegal aliens in Texas received welfare

During the Obama administration, a 6 April 2011 Houston Chronicle article found that over 70% of illegal aliens in Texas received welfare.

Thirteen years after Congress overhauled the American welfare system, 57 percent of immigrants with children — those in the country legally or not — use at least one government, welfare program according to a report released Tuesday by the Center for Immigration Studies.

In comparison, 39 percent of native-born Americans with children are signed up for welfare, the report found.

In Texas, 54 percent of legal immigrants and 70 percent of illegal immigrants receive welfare assistance, with illegal immigrants generally receiving benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children, according to the study, written by a think tank that favors reducing immigration into the U.S.

Overall, Texas tied with California and New York for the second highest immigrant welfare rates behind Arizona.

We should note that the study takes an expansive view of what constitutes a government welfare program, so programs such as reduced-price school lunches for low-income students are classified as welfare, according to CIS’ methodology.

What can I say? We have known about this for years, but have done little to change the issue.

Bishop E. W. Jackson’s Response to "An Open Letter" to Hillary Clinton


Bishop E.W. Jackson as portrayed at Maggie’s Notebook.

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have read your open letter to Hillary Clinton and since I have taken a leadership role in trying to awaken black Christians to the demonic stronghold the Democrat Party has over our community, I feel obligated, indeed called by God to comment on your missive.

First, I commend you all for your willingness to say something, anything about the pressing moral and social issues of our day, particularly those affecting the black community. All too many of us are silent in the face of social upheaval. I am reminded of Jesus’ admonition, “So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Would that you were hot or cold….” [Rev.3:16] We undoubtedly disagree on certain issues and approaches, but at least we are in the debate.

Secondly, it is encouraging that while you raise the issue of police brutality, you do not make the fatal error of many black leaders. You do not ignore the scourge of black on black crime which is killing thousands every year at disproportionate numbers from any other intra-ethnic violence. The reality is that the number of black people killed in police confrontations pales in significance to the number who die on our streets – including innocent women and children – at the hands of black criminals. I congratulate you because many who claim to be the intellectual elite of our community refuse to discuss this. They are so captivated by the racism paradigm, that they cannot see the bodies piling up right in front of them. We know that the ultimate cause behind the violence and murder is sin and Satan. Focusing on the flesh, i.e., the racial element, will never solve the problem because that is a symptom, but definitely not the disease.

As your letter indicates and I have said many times, Bible believing Christians, black and white, are in fundamental agreement on the moral and social issues affecting society. We agree on societal sin, but do not necessarily agree on the solutions.

I would like to offer an ongoing dialogue with members of my ministerial organization – MINISTERS TAKING A STAND. The problems of our community will not be solved by sniping at each other from across the ideological fence. We need to come together around biblical principles that unite us.

That brings me to my first criticism of your letter to Hillary. In the first paragraph you say, “we, clergy and intellectuals who serve the poor, Democrats and independents, appeal to you.” Do I understand that you have no Republicans in your churches? I can assure you that you do. They may be in the closet because of the hatred they are likely to feel from their “fellow Christians” and the accusations leveled at them as “traitors” and “sellouts.” By refusing to acknowledge them you are perpetuating an ungodly attitude toward black Americans who identify as Republicans. How can you allow that when they are the very people who cannot reconcile themselves to the wrongs of the Democrat Party that you yourselves point out – e.g., disregarding the lives of unborn children and arrogantly redefining marriage in direct defiance of God. Your silence implies that God blesses membership in the Democrat Party in spite of its utter moral bankruptcy. Or perhaps you mean to convey your own approval of the Democrat Party and disapproval of the Republican Party. Either way, God will not bless sin and you should not bless it either. We should encourage our members to think biblically, not racially. If they compare the platforms of the two parties, they have more affinity for Republican principles. They need deliverance from the stronghold Democrats have over black voters. God called us to set the captives free, not polish the shackles.

The second concern I have with your letter is that as some of the most influential black leaders in America you approach Mrs. Clinton as if you answer to her. You answer to God. In fact the biblical order is that prophets of God hold political leaders accountable, not the other way around. Too often men and women of God go hat-in-hand to elected and appointed leaders begging their indulgence. They should be coming to us, begging the blessing of God and asking how to obtain it. However, long years of abdication of our prophetic responsibility have made that scenario highly unlikely. Your letter does nothing to restore the proper order. It reinforces precisely the wrong order.

Finally, and this is the most devastating aspect of your letter, in spite of the critique you offer of the condition of the black community and the incongruity of the Democrat Party platform with the values of the black church, you tacitly endorse the person who personifies the very things you oppose. Your closing words suggest no demands. It is as if you all are mere bystanders to one of the most consequential elections in the history of our country.

“We request that you set a place and time, during your first 100 days in office, where we may meet to learn more about your position on these issues. Then we will be better able to inform our community about what they can reasonably expect from a Clinton administration.”

First, you assume she will be elected, but take no stand one way or the other. You never mention Republicans or Donald Trump so there is implicit endorsement. You imply that for black people there is only the Democrat Party, but you don’t say it explicitly.

As to learning more about Hillary’s positions, you already know them, certainly on abortion and marriage. You left out support for Israel, by the way. You do not need to learn more. You need to condition your support upon her alignment with God’s word. I read some time ago that one of your signatories—Bishop Paul Morton—resigned from and denounced the Democrat Party. That is the kind of courageous leadership our people need right now. If you all provide it, those whom you shepherd will follow.

The word of God says, “For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?” [1 Cor. 14:8] It is my hope that you will sound the trumpet so loud that it will wake up those black Christians who are the walking dead in a party that hates the God they claim to love. Remember this is the party that removed any mention of God from their Party Platform. These are the people want to leave “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance. They want to leave “our Creator” out of their recitation of the Declaration of Independence. It is time to come out from among them.

The body of Christ desperately needs leadership in this hour, and God will hold us all accountable as under-shepherds for the failure to provide it. Our nation is in the worst moral and spiritual crisis of its history. We need to provide godly leadership and elect godly leadership. We need officials whose hearts are set to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, knowing that everything else we need will be added. I respect the important role all of you serve. I stand ready to unite with you around kingdom principles to awaken our country again to the truth that, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” [Prov. 29:2]

I hope this is the beginning of an ongoing dialogue. May God guide and bless you and your ministries and may He continue to bless our beloved country—the United States of America.

Yours In Christ,

MINISTERS TAKING A STAND

President and Founder, Bishop E.W. Jackson

Illegal Immigration and Other Migrant News that happened during the Campaign


Jeff Sessions speaks at a Trump rally

2016 Fiscal Year saw a Surge of 817,740 Illegal Immigrants

In a 31 October 2016 Washington Examiner, Senator Sessions speaks on the surge across the Southern border:

“In a bid to put the issue of illegal immigration back into the presidential debate, outspoken critic Sen. Jeff Sessions on Monday issued a ‘Critical Alert’ warning of a potentially historic surge of over the border.

‘We are simply overwhelmed,’ his statement said. In it he estimated the Fiscal Year 2016 illegal crossings at 817,740.

‘There is a crisis at our southwest border — one that in many ways exceeds the crisis we saw just two years ago, one that further undermines the integrity of our immigration system, but one that the most of the media has elected to ignore,’ said Sessions, an advisor to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Sessions listed the new numbers and details of the surge of undocumented illegal immigrants arriving at U.S. Border Patrol stations or simply crossing over. Among them:

  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is currently detaining more than 40,000 aliens, with internal predictions indicating that the number could reach 47,000 in the coming months.
  • In fiscal 2016, the U.S. Border Patrol apprehended 408,870 illegal aliens at the southern border; a number 23 percent higher than in fiscal 2015.
  • Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, was quoted as saying just half of illegals are caught crossing the border.
  • Calculating illegal entries based on that formula, 408,870 illegal aliens evaded detection in fiscal 2016, for a total of approximately 817,740 illegal entries into the United States last year.

Sessions said the border crisis demands a new president and approach to reforming immigration starting with a closed border.”

While this may be a ministry opportunity, we must both encourage those who broke the law to reverse course and obey the law.  As for ourselves, we must call for a governmental policy that promotes the well being of law-abiding citizens.

Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:22)

Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, (Titus 3:1)

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. (Philippians 2:3-4)

Crisis in Illegal Immigration

Breitbart News reported in a 30 October 2016 article on the crisis in illegal immigration that has developed as our attention has been diverted to the presidential campaigns:

“The flood of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border has become a ‘crisis situation’ and is even worse than the record 2014 border surge, says an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer from El Paso, Texas with more than ten years of service to the agency.

The ICE agency has no room to house the arriving surge, so many illegals are being released into American communities where they disappear “into the wind never to be seen by us again,” the agent said.

The agent—who spoke to Breitbart News exclusively on the condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation by the administration—detailed how his overrun agency has been forced to pull agents from their mission of removing criminal aliens from the nation’s interior, so that they can help process the cross-border influx of illegal aliens.

The illegal aliens, mostly from Central America, are using President Barack Obama’s policies to request asylum, work permits and green cards. Whereas unlawful aliens traditionally sought to evade border agents in hopes of reaching U.S. cities where they could illegally fill American jobs, reports document how many of these new migrants are now turning themselves in to border patrol agents believing they’ll be allowed to stay permanently. This 2016 influx of migrants from Central America had exceeded 117,000 by Oct. 1, marking a new record, Breitbart News reported.

Many additional thousands of illegal aliens continue to pour across the border via smuggling routes that try to bypass the border patrol. In the 12 months up to October 2016, 271,000 illegal immigrants were caught trying to sneak across the border—but many others escaped arrest and made their way to U.S. workplaces and cities.

ICE is the agency responsible for enforcing federal immigration law by identifying and removing illegal aliens within the interior of the nation, as well as removing aliens apprehended at the border by border patrol. After an alien is apprehended by border patrol, the alien is then turned over to ICE, which processes and detains the alien.”

Agents accuse Feds of covering Record Crowds of Illegals Detained

A 30 October 2016 Breitbart article focused on claims by border agents that the administration has been hiding the numbers of illegals taken into detention centers.

“A record number of illegal aliens have crossed the U.S.- Mexico border and are in U.S. Border Patrol custody in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV), according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). Border Patrol Agent and NBPC President Brandon Judd spoke exclusively with Breitbart Texas and condemned the leadership of the Border Patrol’s parent agency, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), for allegedly ‘keeping this information secret’ ahead of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

‘We are at breaking point. We have the highest number of illegal aliens in custody in history in Border Patrol’s RGV Sector and this information has been kept from the American public,’ said Agent Judd. ‘The talk of amnesty has once again created pull factors and encouraged people from all over the world to cross Mexico and then cross our porous southern border to illegally enter the U.S. We are simply overwhelmed.’

Agent Judd told Breitbart Texas that Americans should vote their conscience, but they should do so with all of the information available. ‘This is an issue of the federal government restricting crucial information from the public ahead of a presidential election and it is unacceptable. Americans deserve to know the truth. Our Border Patrol agents deserve for Americans to know what they are really facing. Too many Border Patrol agents have given their lives and left loved ones to grieve for CBP leadership to play these types of political games ahead of such an impactful election.’

Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera spoke with Breitbart Texas in his capacity as vice president of the NBPC Local 3307, that represents the majority of Border Patrol agents in the RGV Sector. He said, ‘This isn’t surprising, considering the history of Border Patrol and CBP covering up facts and falsifying numbers.’ He added, ‘In 2014, CBP didn’t publicize the crowded conditions in our facilities until Breitbart Texas published over forty photos depicting the reality. Only then did they properly address the crisis.’

Agent Cabrera said CBP were in fact concealing the gravity of the current border crisis. ‘One side in this coming election is downplaying illegal immigration and concealing this information only serves to help that agenda,’ said Agent Cabrera.”

Germany faces its own crisis caused by Islamic migrants

A 1 November 2016 Express article describes the crime wave surging over Germany due to Angela Merkel’s decision to import Islamic migrants.

“During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office.

And Germany has been hit by a spate of horrendous violent crime including rapes, sexual and physical assaults, stabbings, home invasions, robberies, burglaries and drug trafficking.

Adding to the country’s woes is the fact that thousands of people have gone missing after travelling there on invitation from Anegla Merkel.

Now the true reality is hitting home ahead of next year’s elections as the far right surges in the polls threatening to topple the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leader Mrs Merkel.

According to a report by the international policy council the Gatestone Institute, local police in many parts of the country admit that they are stretched to the limit.

The report states: ‘The rape of a ten-year-old girl in Leipzig, the largest city in Saxony, has drawn renewed attention to the spiralling levels of violent crime perpetrated by migrants in cities and towns across Germany.

‘During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office. This is equivalent to 780 crimes committed by migrants every day, an increase of nearly 40 per cent over 2015. The data includes only those crimes in which a suspect has been caught.

‘Thousands of migrants who entered the country as ‘asylum seekers’ or ‘refugees’ have gone missing. They are, presumably, economic migrants who entered Germany on false pretences.

‘Many are thought to be engaging in robbery and criminal violence.’

According to Freddi Lohse of the German Police Union in Hamburg, many migrant offenders view the leniency of the German justice system as a green light to continue delinquent behaviour, says the report.”
