Sweden 'covering up' migrant rape and violent crime for the sake of 'humanitarianism'

Oli Smith | Express -- 

Journalist Ami Horowitz told Fox News people high up in the Swedish government are deliberately covering up and protecting perpetrators of rapes to protect "vulnerable" migrants.

During an explosive interview on Friday, Mr Horowitz claimed the refugee violence crisis was out of control but that "European virtues" had put a stop to any discussion on the statistics.

His claims caused Donald Trump to tell a rally in Florida that migration in Europe was out of control and wrongly claim there had been a security incident in Sweden.

He later said his comments were actually in reference to the Fox report rather than one specific incident.

Sweden accepted 160,000 asylum-seekers last year, with Fox reporting only 500 have managed to gain employment – 0.3 per cent of those who arrived to claim refugee status.
