Socialist Danish Prime Minister Sets Goal of “Zero” Asylum Applications, Citing “Social Cohesion”
The Prime Minister of Denmark is pledging to work to eliminate asylum applications to her nation, citing the damaging effects of migration from non-western countries and the impact on Denmark’s “social cohesion.”
PM Mette Frederiksen set the goal during a Friday speech at the Danish parliament, the Folketing.
“We cannot promise zero asylum seekers, but we can set out the vision that we also did before the elections, namely that we want a new asylum system and then we do what we can to introduce it.”
Frederiksen cited the criminal element present in immigrant enclaves in Denmark as evidence to phase away the asylum system in Denmark. Frederiksen is the leader of the Social Democrats party, which has broken the mold of western liberal and leftist parties by opposing mass immigration while advancing economic policies aimed to alleviate income inequality.
“One in five young men from non-Western backgrounds who were born in 1997 had breached the penal code before the age of 21. One in five.
It’s nothing new, and that’s the problem: it’s been going on for too many years. Girls are called derogatory things because they are Danish. Or girls are subjected to social control because they have become too Danish. A sausage cart in Brønshøj is attacked with firecrackers because it sells pork.”
Denmark already contrasts with its Scandinavian neighbors through its more conservative immigration policies. The country accepted less than 1,000 asylum seekers last year(in part due to coronavirus travel restrictions), far less than more liberal nations such as Sweden and Germany.
With the Biden administration already working to restart American globo-liberal regime change operations abroad, it ranges from possible to likely that political tumult in the Middle East and Asia will result in a renewed wave of illegal migration from the region to Europe sometime in the near future.
As American conservatives waste time working to lower Jeff Bezos’ taxes and shilling for corrupt oligarchs, the government of Denmark appears set to provide an example in fighting for the interests of its citizens.
