Majority of crime suspects in the Netherlands are immigrants

22% of everyone living in the Netherlands has a foreign background. (This includes Western and non-Western immigrants).

The largest groups of immigrants in the Netherlands are Moroccans, Antilleans, Surinamese, and Turks. Non-western immigrants make up 44.5% of the Dutch prison population. Antillean immigrants are 6.4 times more likely to be a crime suspect than a native Dutch person. Moroccans are 5.75 times. Moroccan adults receive welfare at 7.5 times the rate of the native Dutch. 2nd Generation Moroccans have the highest unemployment at 22%. Second generation Western immigrants are unemployed at a rate of 8%.

Non-Western immigrants do not improve their performance in the 2nd or 3rd generation. In fact, many groups perform worse in the second or third generation than their first generation relatives did.
