Like all Western European countries who’ve taken in large numbers of Middle Eastern and North African Muslim migrants, Denmark has had a difficult time stopping these non-Western migrants from ghettoizing. They’ve had an even more difficult time getting them to work.
Recently, Danish migration minister Inger Støjberg said, “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.”
Since 2017, Denmark’s Immigration Service began carrying out comprehensive reviews of ‘refugee residence permits’ and has revoked the residency permit of nearly 1,000 Somali migrants.
On top of that, the Danish parliament has also approved a new policy will see criminal migrants relocated to an uninhabited island before they are deported. The idea behind this policy seeks to limit the spread of radical Islamic ideology throughout Danish prisons.
Earlier this year in October, Støjberg rebuffed efforts from the European Union to impose migrant quotas, asserting, “too few contribute” to the workforce.
If only their Scandinavian neighbor Sweden could adopt the same outlook.
A recent study conducted by Professor Emeritus in Economics Lars Calmsfors has revealed that Sweden – compared to Norway, Denmark, and Finland – has the most difficulty getting newly arrived migrants to work.
Things have gotten so bad in Sweden that officials in the Swedish municipality of Bengtsfors have been forced to ask the national government for aid due to the enormous financial burden that has been incurred on taxpayers as a result of taking in too many non-working, welfare-dependent migrants.
The failure of most Muslim migrant to assimilate and integrate into European society continues to be a massive problem that most liberal parties and center-right parties refuse to deal with. In this regard, Denmark has been exceptional in that its left-leaning parties have been willing to address the problem head-on. As a result, the rise of right-wing nationalist and populists parties in Denmark has been limited.
Until more European governments adopt sensible policies on migration, Islamic extremist attacks, mass rapes, sharia patrols, sharia courts, no-go zones, female genital mutilation, child marriage, and antisemitism will all continue to proliferate.
