Denmark turns away and returns refugees also buys ads to tell them to stay away.
- Denmark's parliament is cutting state help — a lot. "The social benefits for newcomer refugees will be reduced by up to 50 percent," the ad from the Danish Ministry of Immigration, Integration and Housing stated.
- Permanent residence will only be granted after five years, at the earliest.
- Foreign nationals who are given temporary residence will not have the right to bring family members over during the first year.
- Those looking to get permanent residence will be required to speak and understand Danish.
- Rejected asylum seekers will be expelled "quickly." A special return center of rejected applicants will ensure this fact.
Officials at Denmark's Ministry of Immigration, Integration and Housing were not immediately available for comment on the ads.
It's a pretty clear double standard. In Europe a nordic country, especially a nordic country plenty of people and on the left in general have declared the United States should model itself after, is turning away refugees, placing ads telling them not to come and sending those already there back to other countries.
If this were in the United States, we all know what it would be called. What is it called now when it is Denmark?
