Denmark has admitted many Muslim migrants, but it is also trying to preserve its culture. It has “introduced a series of integration programmes to stop non-Western migrants ghettosing in the Scandinavian peninsula, including telling migrants in high-ethnic neighbourhoods that their children must attend daycare from the age of one to learn Danish values or the parents face losing social security benefits.” And it is also sending migrants back home. Since early 2017, “the Immigration Service began its review of refugee residency permits” and “nearly 1,000 Somalis have had their Danish residency permit revoked.”
Denmark’s migration minister Inger Støjberg has stated:
If you no longer need our protection and your life and health are no longer at risk in your home country, and specifically in Somalia, you must of course return home and rebuild the country from which you came from.
The Danish parliament has also given the go-ahead “to a new policy that will see criminal migrants placed on an uninhabited island before their deportation,” which is a good idea given the spread of jihadi radicalization in Western jails.
Preserving democracy, the rule of law and the stability of society should be the first priority of every European leader.
In October, Ms Støjberg rejected EU efforts to impose migrant quotas, saying “too few contribute” to the workforce — Denmark being known as a country with a high cultural value work ethic.
