Unsurprising that stricter Danish rules give fewer Muslims citizenship: immigration minister

From the Danish edition of The Local

Denmark’s minister for immigration Inger Støjberg says she is not surprised that fewer Muslims have been approved for Danish citizenship since the government introduced stricter rules in 2015. According to research carried out by newspaper Politiken, 70 percent of new Danish citizenships in 2014 were to people from primarily Muslim countries. That figure has fallen drastically to 21 percent this year.

Støjberg said the figures show that the curbs, which her ministry was responsible for implementing, have had the desired effect. She added she would begin talks over potential further curbs in the coming week.

“There is no doubt that this is because the demands have been increased. For example, the language requirement, being able to provide for oneself, staying away from criminality and passing certain tests. . . In my view there is no doubt at all that it is much easier to integrate a Christian American than a Muslim Somali . . . It is clear that if you come from other parts of the world, you have to exert yourself somewhat harder to, for example, learn the language . . . I have tightened up [on citizenship] once, and a new set of curbs is now on its way. People that have committed gang crime must not be allowed citizenship. . . The aim of tough rules is to make Danish citizenship something to strive for,”

The citizenship rules introduced in 2015 by the then-Liberal government with the support of Denmark’s other right wing parties included more stringent language demands, financial autonomy, a higher score in the citizenship test and stricter rules relating to criminal records.
