Denmark’s goal: “Zero asylum seekers” | Free Times

Published 22 January 2021 at 15.06

It was in the Folketing on Friday that Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen presented a new goal for immigration.

Denmark will not receive any asylum seekers at all. You must start from a zero vision.

– That is our goal. We can not make a promise of zero asylum seekers, but we can have it as a vision. We want a new asylum system, and we will do what we can to implement it, she said in Parliament.

The Prime Minister also criticized previous governments for not making sufficiently strict demands on immigrants, such as maintenance requirements and demands to adapt to Danish values.

Now the number of immigrants must go down, otherwise Denmark will lose its cohesive power, according to Frederiksen.

Last year, 1,547 asylum seekers were registered in Denmark, the lowest number since 1998, writes Ritzau.

Last year’s number is less than one tenth of the number who came during the asylum wave in 2015. At that time, 21,316 asylum seekers were registered in Denmark.
