'No more than 1,000 new Danish citizenships annually': DF as law change talks begin

Post OsricPearl on Fri 25 May - 22:34

Some good news:

The anti-immigration Danish People’s Party (DF) has called for a limit to be placed on the amount of people awarded Danish citizenship, regardless of other requirements being met.
Denmark’s coalition government will on Wednesday begin talks with its parliamentary ally DF, as well as the opposition Social Democrats, on new rules for citizenship applications.
“It is very good that curbs in this area, something that was unthinkable a few years ago, are now being proposed by the government,” DF’s citizenship spokesperson Christian Langballe said.
The party is hoping to persuade immigration minister Inger Støjberg to go even further than the proposals the government has announced.
Those include requirements regarding self-sufficiency as well as bans on citizenship for individuals convicted of certain serious criminal offences including gang crime, crimes against children and sexual crimes.
The government also wants to provide for medical authorities that would be able to double-check applicants’ diagnosed health conditions.
New citizens would be required to participate in a ceremony in their local municipalities at which they would sign a pledge to obey Denmark’s constitution, should Støjberg’s proposal be accepted.
“With this proposal we want to make it quite clear that that there is something quite special about becoming a Danish citizen,” the minister said in a press statement.
“The government wants Danish citizenship to be given only to those foreigners who have been here for many years, and who have clearly shown that they are both capable of and want to uphold Danish society and Danish values,” she added.
Langballe said DF would be advocating its own ideas during the upcoming discussion.
“Our key demand is an annual limit of 1,000 persons on new citizenships, whereby there will be a premise that people from Western cultures are given a higher ranking,” Langballe said.
“We also want a ten-year trial period in which if a serious crime is committed, citizenship can be withdrawn,” he added.
I especially like the section I emphasized. I hope that it passes.

I especially like the condition above it giving preference to Westerners.

I don't know how many countries have similar arrangements, but an immigrant can live in Britain for years under 'settled status' without becoming a citizen, so I'd like to see a strict limit applied to that group.

But it shows that improvements can be made when a non-Establishment party gets a foot into government by a proportional voting system. Britain, unfortunately, is stuck with an outdated system which keeps the traditional two or three parties dominant. It's a big problem.
