Newly released figures from the Spanish government have shown that nearly half of all sexual assault convicts—and over half of rape convicts—in 2021 were foreigners, a statistical trend that has been observed and recorded across a slew of Western European countries whose liberal governments have embraced globalist pro-mass migration policies.
The data, collected by the National Statistics Institute (INE), the government agency responsible for collecting statistics about demography, economy, and Spanish society, revealed that, despite making up 15.22% of the population, foreign nationals accounted for 45.62% of criminals convicted of sexual assault and 52.17% of rape convicts, last year, The Objective reports.
Nationals from African countries, who represent 2.4% of the Spanish population, were especially overrepresented, accounting for 18.94% of the criminals convicted of sexual assault in 2021.
Spanish newspapers The Objective and El Debate have both accused the INE of concealing the fact that foreigners were vastly overrepresented as sexual assault and rape convicts, while at the same time highlighting that Spanish nationals were responsible for the majority of petty crime.
Roberto Marbán, a journalist for El Debate, writes:
It is very difficult to find, both in the press release prepared for this purpose and in the ad hoc data tables, the nationality of those who carried out sexual assaults in Spain.
Macros Ondarra, a journalist for The Objective, writes:
The Objective has obtained this data by filtering the search on the INE portal, since the report provided by this agency on September 15 did not offer a screening by nationality in the case of those convicted of a crime of sexual assault. It did specify, however, that “most of those convicted in 2021 had Spanish nationality” (75.2%), concerning the overall number of crimes committed last year, although these were mostly of lesser gravity: road safety (23.7%), injuries (17.2%) and thefts (14%).
The alarming statistical findings elucidated in the INE’s report, unfortunately, are not unique to Spain. Similar trends have also been observed and recorded by government statistical agencies in Germany, Italy, France, Austria, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
In 2022, the German Federal Statistical Office revealed that foreigners, despite making up approximately 12% of the population, represented 42.44% of suspects in sexual offense cases. In the same report, the office indicated the proportion of foreign suspects in criminal cases involving sexual offenses has risen dramatically in the past two decades, climbing from 35% to 42%. The year before, data published by Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), showed that half of all gang rape suspects in 2020 were foreign nationals.
In October 2021, a study carried out by the Finnish government revealed that foreign-born residents, despite comprising less than 7% of Finland’s total population, accounted for nearly 38% of the country’s rape suspects in 2020.
The Finnish study’s findings mirrored data extracted in a separate study—also published in October by the Swedish government—which showed that first-generation immigrants were nearly three times as likely to be rape suspects than were native-born Swedes with Swedish parents.
A 2018 survey carried out by the Swedish state broadcaster SVT, revealed individuals born abroad—despite comprising about 13% of the population—composed 58% of rape convicts. Similarly, an investigation conducted in 2018, this time carried out by the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, found that since 2012, 72.2 of gang rape convicts were born outside of Europe.
