Danish Parliament Adopts Declaration Barring Muslim-Majority Neighborhoods
by Jacob Bojesson
The Danish parliament has passed a declaration that says no residential areas in the country should have an immigrant-majority population.
The populist Danish People's Party (DF) introduced the bill amid concerns that the immigrant population of a Copenhagen neighborhood has exerted undue influence. The ruling coalition backed the proposal, which passed in a 55-54 vote Monday.
"Parliament notes with concern that today there are areas in Denmark where the number of immigrants from non-Western countries and their descendants is above 50 percent. It is parliament's opinion that Danes should not be a minority in residential areas in Denmark," the statement reads.
