Mikkel Andersson and Niels Jespersen call mass migration into Denmark a ‘failed experiment’ as the country would be better off without it.
In their newly published book "The Experiment That Failed", the authors argue that especially non-Western migration's a bad effect on the country, making it more polarised and less secure.
In 35 years the number of non-Western migrants has almost 10 folded: From 60,000 in 1983, to 500,000 in 2018. Andersson and Jespersen say that the effects of the group on Denmark’s society of 5.6 million people are mostly negative.
Without mass migration Denmark would be better off and have less crime, the authors argue. Now there's gang wars, parallel societies and youths terrorising neighbourhoods.
In the meantime non-Western immigration brings tremendous costs for Danish society: DKK 30 billion, almost 4 billion euros per year.
The authors claim the effects of economic migrants are also harmful for the real refugees who deserve help.
"Denmark helps a small number of able asylum seekers who have the power and money to travel through 6-8 secure countries while failing a larger number of those who don't have the resources, but could've received much better assistance for the same money," Mikkel Andersson tells newspaper Berlingske.
