Are immigrants causing riots, violence and rapes in Germany?

 The idea that immigrants are causing riots, violence, and rapes in Germany is a controversial and complex issue. Here are some relevant points from the search results:

  • Crimes may be committed both against and by immigrants in Germany

    .
  • A 2017 study found that the strength of right-wing parties in a district considerably boosts the probability of attacks on refugees in that area

    .
  • Vigilantism against immigrants is considered to have become more widespread after the sexual assaults by migrants in Cologne and other German cities on New Year's Eve 2015

    .
  • Over 1,200 women were reportedly sexually assaulted during the 2015-16 public New Year's Eve celebrations in Germany

    .
  • Before the 2015 New Year’s Eve, criminal activities of refugees have only been slightly covered by German media to not disclose any personal information as their national background. However, since that night, the media discourse on crime committed by migrants is different. This new kind of media portrayal on refugees has provoked even more racism among the German population

    .
  • The idea that immigrants are causing riots, violence, and rapes is not supported by the available evidence. A 2019 study found no systematic association between migrant criminal action on Germans since 2015 and the number of immigrants and crimes against Germans
    1
    .
  • It is important to note that immigrants, like any other group of people, are not a monolithic entity. It is not accurate to make sweeping generalizations about all immigrants based on the actions of a few individuals
