Reliable statistics on migrant-related crimes in Spain are unavailable because the data compiled by the Spanish Interior Ministry on specific categories of crimes (homicide, rape, robbery, etc.) do not break down the offenders by nationality.
But what is known, is that the surge in migrant crime is a textbook case of political correctness run amok.
Despite the lack of official statistics, anecdotal evidence found in the crime reports of local newspapers shows that migrant criminality (ranging from petty theft to sexual assault to murder) is a growing problem nationwide.
In Barcelona, for example, 15 members of a North African itinerant crime gang known as “Allah’s Wolfpack” sexually assaulted a woman at a metro station.
The migrants, some of whom are unaccompanied minors and all of whom are in Spain illegally, had long rap sheets and were well known to the police.
