Immigrants Attract Criminals

And not only more crime, but a “huge surge” in crime. Hard, indeed, not to feel sorry for those East Europeans who arrive on horseback and li-lo only to have their horses, blankets and air pumps stolen on arrival.

And the crime is not random.

As the Express says: “‘Migration from EU has brought a huge surge in organised crime.” Words taken from a report by the Society of Chief Police Officers.

Says Leo McKinstry: “It’s ludicrous to deny that there is link between crime and immigration.”

Indeed, but what can we do to help the new arrivals feel more welcome and not victimised?
