Notwithstanding the four horrific attacks on Germans by Muslim immigrants/refugees in the past week, it is startling to learn that between 2014-15, over 200,000 crimes have been committed by refugees in Germany. According to a report from Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Agency, (as reported by Deutsche Welle, dw.com) fraud, theft, and sexual assaults were committed by refugees from Eritrea, Nigeria, Serbia, Albania and Syria. These data do not include the 446 alleged sexual assaults of German women and girls on New Year’s Eve in Cologne. Do the citizens of Asheville and Buncombe County relish the idea of the risk of such crime accompanying the proposed resettlement of refugees in our community? Please voice your opposition to our community’s leadership as well as to the religious organizations that facilitate the resettlement of refugees.
