Denmark: Tone of immigration debate makes Muslim immigrants want to leave

A recent opinion poll shows that three fourths of immigrants have considered leaving Denmark because of the tone of the immigration debate but a leading politician says that the debate is only addressing real problems.

Venstre’s Inger Støjberg, whose suggestion over the summer that Denmark should make it harder for people from Muslim countries to enter the country, said the negative tone that surrounds immigration is immigrants’ own fault.

“The problems we see with parallel societies, extremism and the oppression of women are the reasons we discuss Islam and immigrants. I hope that the problems go away. If they disappear, so will the debate,” she told Berlingske Nyhedsbureau.

But Støjberg also added that Danes shouldn’t be expected to bite their tongue when it comes to the topic of immigration.
