Denmark Saves $10 Billion by Restricting Third World Immigration

Denmark has a population of less than 6 million. Imagine how much the United States could save if it stopped importing welfare cases. (via Religion of Peace)

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

Tragic.

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.

    Muslim immigrants have never provided a net benefit to any country that has accepted them….

        People from Muslim countries who are westernized are a benefit. Those Muslims, who want to be a community within a community that hates the greater community are a net detriment.

            Islam is islam and where ever islam goes, the blood always flows without exception. Never in the history of islam has it ever been benign, dormant during various periods, especially during western colonization, but it has always been a malignant cancer upon humanity since Mohamed crawled out of the desert and screwed his first none year old. Islam, one way or another is heading to a shown down with the west, only the west can take humanity forward, islam if it reigns supreme can only take us back to the dark ages.

    I’m sure that Denmark can be relied upon to assimilating just the ‘right’ number of immigrants to suit their country and then clamp down with incredible efficiency. However, they are not the ones ‘dropping the eggs into the bowl of flour from a very great height’.

    Do we bomb them, create a refugee crisis and then slam the door on the innocent escapees? Do we suck the juice from their fruit with just a spoonful of sugar for the puppet ‘government’? Where should they go, all these desperadoes?

    Perhaps you think they are all ‘guilty’ for not keeping up.

    • Therapist

      Who did we bomb?

      Sadam? He deserved it. He supported terrorists for years. He coddled Abu Nidal. Are you upset that you cannot coddle Abu Nidal yourself?

      We did bomb Libya. That was a bad thing and Obama did it. After 2003 Gadaffi had left us alone. He left us alone for 8 years and then Imperator Obama decided he needed to celebrate a triumph. Gadaffi was a bad man and we owed him, but he was no longer gunning for us. We should have left him alone. Instead we have many more bad men running rampant and causing many more deaths than Gadaffi. you own it sister.
      *****************************************************************************
      Abu Nidal

      Abu Nidal hijacked Pan Am flight 73 in 1986 because we bombed Iraq or because of the drone program?

      ” The report showed that the manager of the Sloane Street branch of BCCI, near Harrods, had passed information about the Abu Nidal accounts to MI5, and had told them Abu Nidal himself had visited London using the name Shakir Farhan; the manager did not realize who he was dealing with until he later saw a photograph of Abu Nidal. The manager reportedly drove Abu Nidal round London’s most expensive stores, including Selfridges, a tailor’s on Oxford Street, and a cigar store on Jermyn Street”

      Abu Nidal enjoyed the finer things in life. Have you given money and supported him?

          Exactly!! The problems of the Muslim world are largely due to Islam… not the West.
          Ask yourself, why is it only Muslims that keep giving excuses and blaming the West for their problems?
          Why not Buddhists, Hindus, or other non-Christian religious groups?

          In case you haven’t noticed, Muslims are also at loggerheads with Hindus in India, Buddhists in Thailand, atheists in China, orthodox Christians in Russia, Catholics in Phillipines, Christians in Nigeria.

          Islam is basically at war with the rest of humanity. It’s high time you stop bending over backwards to excuse the atrocious conduct of Muslims.

  • DogmaelJones1

    I’ve always maintained that welfare states attract the worst immigrants, and especially immigrants who consider themselves “superior” to those providing the welfare, i.e., Muslims. To them, the notion of the U.S. being a “land of opportunity” does not mean a place in which one can become independent, productive individuals, but rather a protected class of parasites, with no shame or stigma attached to the term “parasites.” This reasoning also applies to illegal aliens such as Mexicans. The only “good” thing one can say about illegal aliens such as Mexicans is that, unlike the Muslims, they don’t wish to impose their alleged “religion” on the host country or their “culture,” if one can call the third-rate culture of Mexico a “culture.” They come here only to suck on the welfare teat, although second-generation Mexicans, the youth, have become “radicalized” by the likes of La Raza and other racist outfits bent on their own “reconquista” agenda.

    It seems some sanity has been found in Eurabia after all. Muslims and Islam contribute nothing to western society except chaos and social discord. The west has to start pushing back, and this is one way to make that happen. Muslims need to go. Remember the Quiraysh tried to deal with Muhammad peacefully and it cost them dearly. Likewise the Jews of Medina found themselves taken over in their own town by Muslims, and soon found themselves expelled, slaughtered and sold as slaves. Muhammad set the example of how to bully a host society, and it never ended well for any who opposed him.

          Islam pre-dates Ebionites.

          • Lea

            I know that Muslims think that Islam pre-dates just about anything, but the FACTS show that the Ebionites predate Islam by about 500 centuries. And it is said in the Muslims books that an Ebionite Jew mentored the false prophet of Arabia.

            The earliest reference to a group that might fit the description of the later Ebionites appears in Justin Martyr’s Dialogue with Trypho (c. 140). Justin distinguishes between Jewish Christians who observe the Law of Moses but do not require its observance upon others, and those who believe the Mosaic Law to be obligatory on all. Irenaeus (c. 180) was probably the first to use the term “Ebionites” to describe a heretical judaizing sect, which he regarded as stubbornly clinging to the Law. Origen (c. 212) remarks that the name derives from the Hebrew word “evyon,” meaning “poor.” Epiphanius of Salamis in the 4th century gives the most complete but also questionable account in his heresiology called Panarion, denouncing eighty heretical sects, among them the Ebionites.Epiphanius mostly gives general descriptions of their religious beliefs and includes quotations from their gospels, which have not survived. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica (2011), the Ebionite movement may have arisen about the time of the destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem (AD 70). One of the first men to believe in the prophethood of Muhammad was an Ebionite monk named Waraqah ibn Nawfal, the distant cousin of Mohammed, whom Muslims highly honor as a pious man with deep knowledge of the Christian scriptures. Maybe he taught Mo, and mo simply recited these stories and distorted them as he did so according to his own interpretations.

    I’m happy that some in Europe have started to realize that sooner or later you have to make hard choices.
    No country has the space for everyone that might want to live there. No country has unlimited room or resources.

    • Roy_Cam

      The choices are not “hard”. What is “hard” is to forego one’s self-indulgent POV re “immigrants are good in and of themselves”.

      This reversal of philosophical and emotional tendency will have enormous repercussions throughout Europe and the West as the meaning of it all sinks in.

      The change will affect foreign policy, belief in the faux equality of cultures, and will augment Europe and the West’s appreciation of its own culture as unique and, considered objectively, basically good.

    • Lea

      The question we have to ask is: Why are our rulers so determined to import people into our countries? If it is undemocratic to not take care of those who have no economic value then should their first alliegance not be towards their own citizens who are unproductive, or under educated, or unemployed. Surely immigration should only be allowed once a country has solved its own socio-economic issues in this respect? Yet, it is as if there is a definite plot to destroy the Europeans.

    MUSLIM POPULATION TIMELINE

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves along with threats for failure to comply. At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues.

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels.

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in Bangladesh — Muslim 83%, Egypt — Muslim 90%, Gaza — Muslim 98.7%, Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%, Iran — Muslim 98%, Iraq — Muslim 97%, Jordan — Muslim 92%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: Afghanistan — Muslim 100%, Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%, Somalia — Muslim 100%, Yemen —Muslim 100%.

    • BagLady

      British supermarket/school/prison/hospital meat is now +90% Halal, apparently. However, I put this down to price and can’t imagine what “threats” Muslims could possibly make for non-compliance.

      Not all Muslims eat only Halal meat. It is the Hadith that calls for meat to be prepared so. The Qu’ran makes no mention of it.

      • Lea

        The Hadith only, do you think perhaps that Islam was deliberately created by Jews to attack Christianity, but when the Ebionite Jew died and the other Jews rejected Mo as their Messiah, he became antagonistic towards the Jews too? Just wondering? Because a lot of the stuff in Islam is so similar to Judaism, sometimes distorted, yet very similar.

    • Lightbringer

      I never could stomach, if you’ll pardon the expression, the Muslim insistence on halal school lunches or else, halal aisles in supermarkets or else, nobody eating or drinking in their presence during Ramadan or else, no serving pork or else, and no uncovered females or else. I’m an Orthodox Jew and I can assure you that none of us would insist on anyone accommodating our customs. If I go to a business meeting that includes lunch, I bring my own. If a supermarket carries kosher food, I consider it a great favor on their part and make a point of shopping there. If I see non-kosher food being served or eaten on the street, in the park, at an event, or whatever, that’s fine; I won’t eat it but, if offered some, I will explain that I’ve already eaten, thank you (even if I’m hungry). If I see people eating or drinking while we observe one of our many fast days, that’s fine. If I see other women wearing pants or uncovered hair, that’s great for them but I wear a skirt and headscarf. If I see a Christmas creche or other religious decoration, that’s nice, they’re very pretty. The point is that Jews have never asked anyone to accommodate them, but we have maintained our own laws and our own identity through almost two millennia of exile. The Muzzies have dozens of countries of their own; why can’t they live in one of them? Between the years 70 and 1948 we had no country of our own, but we lived as guests in other countries, obeyed their laws, and never made a fuss. We never make a fuss now, either, wherever we live. So why do our idiot cousins, the children of Ishmael, insist on being so annoying?

        If you know anything about the way Muhammadans raise their children, you pretty much have the answer to why they wreak havoc wherever they go.

        The Jewish tradition treats children with respect. They are allowed to express their opinions from the time they can speak. There opinions may not be given much weight, but they are free to express them. This results in intelligent offspring well-suited to success in life’s endeavors.

        Muhammadans beat the crap out of their kids from an early age, and tell them to STFU or get beaten some more. This creates psychotic offspring, only qualified to spread bedlam wherever they go.

    Ethnic and religious conflicts are a result of fear. The fear of life is the cause of all our anti-social, self-destructive, neurotic habits of behaviour and relationship with one another, and with the earth itself. We have found that a simple act that we call ‘looking at yourself’ washes away the fear of life and heals the mind of anyone who will try it just once:

    1. Close your eyes. Notice the symphony of sensations and thoughts about sensations rising and falling within you.

    2. Notice that you can move your attention to one or another sensation or thought at will.

    3. Now use that same beam of attention to look for the feel of what you would call ‘me’ – a faint sensation that is what you feel like to yourself.

    4. Try to ‘look at yourself’ whenever the thought of it comes to you. You cannot fail if you just try.

    That’s it, you’ve done all that needs to be done to bring you home to the beauty and satisfaction that are to be found in a human life lived without fear.
