Integration Fail: New Study in Norway Finds Children of Migrants Commit More Crime Than Their Parent
Somalis 4.6 times more likely to commit violent crime than their parents.
A new study out of Norway has found that children of migrants commit more crimes than their parents, suggesting integration is failing.
According to the data, Norwegian born men aged 15-35 with a Somali family background were 4.6 times more likely to have committed a violent crime.
Men in the same age group with Iraqi backgrounds were 4 times more likely to have committed a violent crime, while the same pattern is observed in Moroccan Norwegians (3.2), Turkish Norwegians (2.8), and Pakistani Norwegians (2.4).
Jon Helgheim of the right-wing Progress Party said the numbers clearly indicate integration is failing and that the government needs to address the issue.
