Denmark’s strict immigration laws have saved the country billions in benefits, a government report has claimed. The Integration Ministry report has now led to calls among right-wing populists to clamp down further on immigrants to increase the savings.
The extremely strict laws have dramatically reduced the flow of people into Denmark in recent years, and many government figures are delighted with the outcome. “Now that we can see that it does matter who comes into the country, I have no scruples in further restricting those who one can suspect will be a burden on Denmark,” the center-right liberal integration minister, Søren Pind, told the Jyllands Posten newspaper.
Pind was talking after the ministry’s report — initiated by the right-wing populist Danish People’s Party (DPP) — came to the conclusion that by tightening immigration laws, Denmark has saved 6.7 billion ($10 billion) over the last 10 years, money which otherwise would supposedly have been spent on social benefits or housing. According to the figures, migrants from non-Western countries who did manage to come to Denmark have cost the state 2.3 billion, while those from the West have actually contributed 295 million to government coffers.
But the report has sparked outrage from opposition parties like the centrist Social Liberal Party, which dismissed it as undignified and discriminatory. The party’s integration spokeswoman, Marianne Jelved, said: “A certain group of people is being denounced and being blamed for our deficit, being made into whipping boys.”
She added: “We cannot classify people depending on their value to the economy. That is degrading in a democracy that has a basic value of equality.”
Actually yes you can and should. Immigrants should provide a net benefit to the country. It’s possible to evaluate the net benefit and loss for immigrants from a given country or group. And immigration targets should be set based on the net benefit from that group while restricting groups that are a net loss.
These figures should be calculated based on taxes paid, social services used, added cost of crime prevention, native job creation, etc…
Some immigrants have already turned their back on Denmark voluntarily. Increasing numbers of Somalis are moving away, especially to the UK
Just think of all the murders, rapes, thefts and welfare fraud… not to mention bombings, Denmark is missing out on.
Now maybe UK voters will follow suit and the Somalis will go home. Or to Maine and Minnesota.
In November, the government agreed to stricter laws and made the entry of immigrants’ spouses more difficult. Only those who collect enough “points” may come to Denmark in the future — with points being determined by factors such as academic qualifications and proof of language proficiency. In addition, the equivalent of 13,000 must be deposited with the state in the form of a bank guarantee to cover any future public assistance. Socially deprived areas with a disproportionately high number of immigrants will be subject in future to a so-called “ghetto strategy” designed to prevent high concentrations of foreigners in public housing areas. Migrants will be assigned housing, and three-year-old children who do not speak Danish well enough will be required to attend state child care.
The number of asylum seekers and relatives of immigrants seeking entry into Denmark dropped by more than two-thirds within nine years as a result of the tough laws.
Self-deportation. It just works.
Their masters in Brussels cannot be pleased.
Even though Denmark is a socialist country, Comrade Obummer would never think of saving money. He want this country to go bankrupt.
Means we could save more.
Note to Congress - - - - Follow this good example.
This is the kind of calculation that sane people make every day.
But the report has sparked outrage from opposition parties like the centrist Social Liberal Party, which dismissed it as undignified and discriminatory. The partys integration spokeswoman, Marianne Jelved, said: A certain group of people is being denounced and being blamed for our deficit, being made into whipping boys.

And there is proof that there will always be politicians to whore themselves out to any constituency that will deliver votes and power -- regardless of the damage those constituencies cause to the nation. Denmark's Social Liberal Party wants even more Somali immigrants on the public dole and voter roles for the same reason that our Democrat Party wants more and more invaders from Mexico and Central America.
Modern Western civilizations, so intelligent and advanced in so many ways, sems absolutely brainless when it comes to connecting the dots between mass immigration of feral populations and the destruction of western culture.
Imagine how much the United States could saved if the people of Assachussets stopped reelecting that drunken schmuck Ted Kennedy for over 50 years. HE and his immigration act is THE primary reason why we have had such a huge surge in 3rd world welfare cases, including marathon bombing terrorists who got $100k in welfare. And they had the audacity to bury this pile of pig slime in Arlington?
No Selfies Today....
They can thank Pia Kjærsgaard and the Danish Peoples party for fighting the Left and being threatened by Muslims and Socialists alike in restricting mass immigration from the Jihadist world.
And think of all the people still alive without the murderers in their midst.
Put a number on that one.
Mrs. Binger and I were in Copenhagen for Christmas five years ago. Made the mistake of taking the train over to Malmo. What a mess. Cope was bad enough.
I bet rapes, murders and violent assaults go way down too. Muslims aren’t worth the aggravation and expense. This country could save hundreds of billions, maybe even a trillion or two by tightening up its immigration laws.
