Denmark: Social Democrats combat ‘non-Western’ immigration and want to send asylum seekers to Africa

On Monday, the leader of the Social Democratic party, Mette Frederiksen, said:

“We want to reform our asylum system, among other things, by setting up reception centers outside Europe, maybe in North Africa. In the future, it will be possible for refugees to obtain asylum in Denmark only under the quotas set by the UN.”

“The population in Denmark has changed rapidly in a short time. In 1980, 1% of the Danish population was of non-Western origin. Today we are at 8%, “she added.

Two parties in the Leftist opposition, however, have rejected the proposal.
