"During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office.

"Thousands of migrants who entered the country as 'asylum seekers' or 'refugees' have gone missing. They are, presumably, economic migrants who entered Germany on false pretenses.
