Denmark And Italy Fight Back Against Open Borders As Populism Swells Across Europe
On the heels of the United Kingdom’s and Europe’s disastrous immigration policies, both Denmark and Italy are fighting back against open borders.
Inger Støjberg, Danish Integration and Immigration Minister, recently rejected EU migrant quotas for 2018, detailing that refugees do not do enough to contribute to Denmark.
Støjberg told Jyllands-Posten:
Although we have gained significantly better control over the influx, we are still in the position that we are struggling to integrate the many refugees who have come to Denmark in recent years. Despite the fact that more refugees have come to work, there are still too many who do not support themselves… That is why I have decided that Denmark should not take quota refugees in 2018…
In her tenure as Integration and Immigration Minister, Støjberg has been vocally critical of mass migration – even saying she was open to the idea of placing failed asylum seekers on deserted Danish islands. However, she admitted there would definitely be “legal challenges” to that notion.
