Denmark avoiding Muslim refugees
Since 2006, the Danish government has stopped accepting refugees from countries in the Muslim world as part of its annual refugee quota, according to a new report from the Justice Ministry.
The report – composed for parliament's immigration and integration panels – documented that Muslim refugees are rarely among the 500 refugees that Denmark accepts every year as part of the annual refugee quota list drawn up by the UNHCR.
Jakob Dam Glynstrup, a spokesperson for the immigration services, Udlændingestyrelsen, argued that Denmark chose the quota refugees who needed the most protection.
