Denmark proposes to send to an island to the migrants that the country rejects

Denmark has entered into force with the election campaign. The centre-right coalition Government (liberals, conservatives, and moderates), with the support of the ultra-right xenophobic of the Danish people's Party (PDP), has proposed to isolate, among others, immigrants who have been denied asylum and not to deport to their country of origin. The exile is scheduled to start in 2021 and a prison in the disuse of the small island of Lindholm, of seven hectares (70,000 square metres), will be the new destination for up to 125 foreign nationals, among which there will also be criminals who have served sentences. With this gesture the Executive Danish continues its path toward the elections of the next spring, full of nods to the most reactionary forces.

"The proposal is focused on maintaining law and order", explained the Government in a press release that adopts the discourse of the scandinavian more ultras: Law and order was just the motto election of the neo-nazi Democrats in sweden (DS) in the past elections, in which they placed themselves as the third political force, although still struggling to gain a foothold in the Government. The euphoria of the PDP went further and, next to a video posted on Twitter shows a man a foreigner arriving in a boat to a deserted island, said: "convicted criminals HAVE NOTHING TO DO IN DENMARK. Until we can get rid of them, they will move to the island of Lindholm, in the bay of Stege, where they will be forced to stay in the new removal centre at night. And there will be police at all hours."

Although the Folketing (Danish Parliament) must still give the green light to the proposal at a session which still has no scheduled date, plans for Lindholm have already been included in the budgets of 2019, the election year in Denmark and also in Brussels, where populist forces eurófobas and xenophobic the Alliance of Nations and Freedom (ENF) gain weight, and have even surpassed the European united Left and Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL), according to the latest poll from POLITICO.

Also in 2019 will empty the small island to make way for the renovations of the old prison. At present there are no residents fixed, and the prison had been transformed into a research laboratory of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Despite the fact that the measure depends on the last word of the 179 mps, the drivers are "optimistic", explains an official of the Ministry of Immigration who do not want to be quoted. And admits that, although these four forces have agreed on the proposal, "there are still technical issues" in which they differ and that could tumbarla.

if approved, Lindholm will become the home of a maximum of 125 old convicted foreign Betboo nationals and asylum-seekers whose requests have been rejected or who have been convicted for a criminal offence or related to drugs and weapons, according to the announcement of the ministry. “There will be arrests”, warns the Government, although there will be a police presence in the territory. The island is connected with the rest of the country by a ferry which takes 20 minutes and that it will cease operations at night. “With the new outlet center on the island of Lindholm send a signal that [these foreigners] do not have a future in Denmark,” said minister of Immigration, Iner Støjberg, of Venstre, the liberal party prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

despite the controversy, the country already has two centres of this type: the of Kærshovedgård, in the center of the peninsula of Jutland, and the Sjælsmark, north of Copenhagen, the capital of the country of nearly six million inhabitants. The particularity of the of Lindholm is located on an island, so communications and the arrival of supplies will become difficult, in addition to that there will be a social integration of their potential residents.

The authorities have been closing ever more the door to foreigners in Denmark, one of the eu countries with the most barriers to immigration. The numbers of arrivals and applications for asylum have been reduced considerably: 10.722 in 2016, in full emergence in the European Union of hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing, above all, of the conflicts in Iraq and Syria, just 1.793 so far this year, according to the latest official figures. In addition, Denmark will continue with the exceptions to Schengen until may of 2019, so they will continue doing controls at its borders, especially in the which it shares with Germany, to the south.

The Government explains that the measure increases the knowledge about who is within the country, and, in addition, is “consistent” with its policies against those who “are not welcome”. Several deputies of the opposition have publicly criticized the measure, as Morten Østergaard the Social Liberal party, which believes that it is a "symbolic gesture".

in Addition, the government will limit the family reunification of immigrants living in the country. “We put in a ceiling to family reunification. It is crucial that Denmark does not return to a situation like the autumn of 2015, and a maximum limit of family reunification is a clear sign that there is a limit to the number of family meetings that Denmark can support”, insists the minister.
