Statistics out of Sweden show a shockingly low level of deportations for foreign rapists.

Only 13 percent of foreigners registered as Swedish residents found guilty of raping children between 2010-2014 were sent home, the Daily Mail reports. And among those not registered as Swedish residents, only 40 percent of foreign child rapists are deported.

Just 19 percent of all foreign nationals charged with rape in Sweden were deported.

Statistics also reveal that only 17 percent of foreigners registered as Swedish residents and convicted of aggravated rape of a child were deported.

One example of such a case occurred last December, when a group of Afghan teens gang raped and beat a boy under the age of 15. (RELATED: Afghan Teens Convicted of Gang Rape in Sweden Won’t Be Deported, Because It’s ‘Too Dangerous’)

Though they were found guilty of the attack, the teens were not deported back to Afghanistan, as that would be “too dangerous.” Instead, they were given sentences between 13-15 months.

Sweden’s crime rate has received increased media attention since Donald Trump mentioned Sweden in a speech last month.

Liberal media outlets laughed at Trump for saying, “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” (RELATED: Liberal Media Mocks Trump For Claim About Sweden)

However, Sweden’s issues with migrant crime are apparent, with even some liberal outlets having to admit as much.

Sweden refuses to collect stats on immigrant crime and hasn’t since 2005. However, back when such data was available, immigrants and foreign born were shown to commit greater levels of crime than natives, with Middle Easterners and North Africans often committing more per capita than any other group.
