Denmark Takes Out Ads to Tell Refugees They Aren’t Welcome

Source: wsj.com

The Danish government has taken out advertisements in the Lebanese press conveying a blunt message: Refugees are not welcome in the small Nordic nation.

First published in four Lebanese newspapers Monday, the advertisements list some of the steps Denmark’s new right-leaning government has taken to toughen its immigration laws, including a 50% cut to social benefits for newly arrived refugees.

“Foreign nationals granted temporary protection in Denmark will not have the right to bring family members to Denmark during the first year,” said the text posted by the Ministry of Immigration, Integration & Housing.

The move—part of a pledge by Denmark’s new right-leaning cabinet to tighten borders—illustrates how European Union members are split on how to cope with the biggest influx of migrants in decades.

The tone of the Danish ad campaign contrasts sharply with the line adopted in nearby Germany and Sweden, where governments have vowed to take more refugees fleeing war-torn Syria, and called for a fairer distribution of refugees across the region.

    Once Upon a Time in Balkans – Lessons From Yugoslav War

    Once upon a time there was this amazing land, placed on mountainous Balkan Peninsula, called Yugoslavia, built on ideas of brotherhood, equality and sharing. I grew up there living together side by side with many cultures and religions. I had wonderful childhood.

    “First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
