Number of migrant criminal suspects in Germany soared last year : interior ministry

The number of migrant criminal suspects in Germany surged by more than 50 percent last year, interior ministry data has revealed.
The figures could potentially boost the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party ahead of the federal election.

According to the figures cited by Reuters, the number of suspects classed as immigrants rose to 174,438 last year, representing a jump of 52.7 percent from the previous year. Migrants accounted for 8.6 percent of all crime suspects in the country, up from 5.7 percent in 2015.

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said crimes committed by refugees "increased disproportionately" in 2016 and warned that "those who commit serious offenses here forfeit their right to stay here."
