"They are unwanted in Denmark, and they will feel that."

In an ongoing push to deter immigration, Denmark announced last week that "unwanted" migrants will be ferried to an inhospitable island in the Baltic sea which currently houses a research center for contagious diseases.

An agreement reached on Friday between the center-right government and immigration hawks in parliament committed to relocating up to 100 immigrants with criminal convictions who, for various reasons including Danish law, cannot be deported back to their home country, The New York Times reported Monday. The approved budget allocates $115 million to the construction of detention facilities on Lindholm Island, where the rejected migrants and asylum seekers will be required to sleep.

According to The Times, the name of the ferry that will transfer undesirables to the island is "Virus."

In praising the decision, Denmark's Immigration Minister Inger Stojberg struck a belligerent tone, writing on Facebook that the would-be isolated migrants "are unwanted in Denmark, and they will feel that."

Rather than serving an end in itself, the relocation plan hopes to encourage asylum seekers to self-deport (former Immigration Minister Birthe Ronn Hornbech straight out dismissed it as a farce, writing in a column that "nothing will come of this proposal").

This is part of Denmark's broader crackdown on immigration from the Middle East and North Africa, the precipitous rise of which in the past decade (culminating in 2015, which saw on average 3,000 new asylum applications a month) has turned even some on the country's far-left into immigration skeptics.

Fearing that the rise in immigration could fracture Denmark's national cohesion and burden its robust social welfare programs, the Danish Social Democrats, a far-left opposition opposition party, amended its platform last year to include demands for stringent immigration control measures and an avowal of cultural assimilation as a condition for naturalization.

So Cal
at least they have a law to deport criminal immigrants, and now they have a process for those criminals that they cannot deport!

I think England did this a long time ago, on an island called Australia, so there is a history of success with these types of programs.
