Danish ex-justice minister calls for grading of immigrants

Whilst Denmark isn’t exactly at the top of the list for would-be migrants, it seems to have similar problems about attracting the right type of expat as many other first world countries.5den_immigrants

The former Danish justice minister, Brian Mikkelsen, has put forward a suggestion that prospective immigrants should be divided into two groups, the bad and the good. Those meriting the label ‘good’ should be allowed to enter and stay and the bad should be sent back to their home countries.

Speaking to reporters from the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, he admitted speaking publicly about his views was politically incorrect, but reiterated that some immigrants are good for the county and some are not. He added that now was the time to take off the rose-coloured spectacles and begin a debate about immigration as a two-tiered system.

Bad immigrants, he continued arrive from certain specific countries and often end up committing crimes and being sent to prison. He believes that these should be deported and that only those who earn money, pay taxes and contribute in other ways to Denmark should be welcomed.

Mikklesen’s views are the result of the country’s stringent immigration laws, which have been proven to be counter-productive on many occasions. Whilst his party was in power, he helped to construct the present system, now considered restrictive, although he insists the laws were necessary to control the open-door policy introduced by the previous government.

He’s impressed by the Canadian immigration system, saying that it encourages immigrants who have high marks in language, job experience and education and disallows those who are unable to pass the points test. Denmark, he insist, has need of highly-educated immigrants.

  1. I agree – but the grading bad or not bad, have to be make from individual behavier and not from nationality or from religion. But in Denmark they allready have a lot they should send back home, but nobody want to take responsibility and they only have the balls to send the god immigrants back home…!

  2. Not only good and bad on those I agree as above.
    But we have to help the real fefugees those whos life is in dagnger in their home countries for ethnical,religious,sexual or political points of few.Reasons that are well known and affecting many of the kind at their home countries.It is also important that we will have rules to immigrants such as at least within 5 years they should be able to speak,read and write in Swedish
    While doing that they should be provided with job opportunity.Lots of jobs can be done silent.It is unacceptable that for example a highly educated dentist from a African country has to STRUGGLE in order to learn Swedish with higher courses and to get her medical Swedish certification sooner (possibility to pass tests quicker)The dentist I am talking about managed within 2 years learn a very good Swedish as well as dental vocabulary and get the Swedish certification.According to her it could take ages often minimum of 5 years to reach what she did in 2.An other example a welder coming here with right schooling cant get a job in a reasonable time thus lacking behind in the modernization in the welding technology We have to look over our regulations.We should start by teaching the non alphabetical people even adults in their home countries.If they get their home language they will more easy learn the language of the new country or they do not even need to leave their home country. In Sweden we have not learn anything since our first larger refugees came here from Chile and Iran in particular.Highly educated not taken care of and are today running succesfull cleaning companies instead of been doctors or other academic now desperately needed in our society.
