It seems many people make an issue out of this sentence. For some reason, Mr Aridou didn't post the original text, so we can't talk conclusively , but the sentence probably means that when foreign students cannot speak Japanese, it might lead them to delinquency, not that foreign students are more likely to be led to delinquency. Rather delinquent foreign students are not bad by nature but the special circumstance by which they are bound might lead them to such a result, and that is one reason why this policy is effective--- isn't that what the sentence say?
Could you tell me how you took the sentence as implying that foreign students in particular are more prone to commit crimes?
